Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

I'm not saying you're wrong. It does make the title shots mean more, but at what cost? I'd rather see a title shot against a guy who probably wont win it then no title shot at all.

I don't want to go to a show where the champs aren't gonna be there. And non title matches are so 1980's.

They still happen now but like I said, the INDIES mostly defend their belts every month.

The champions are there, so I don't see what you mean. Non-Title matches are not "1920's". What does that even mean? Is every company in the 80's then? Because, not sure if you've noticed, but not every title is defended on every show, every week, is it?

Indies who hold a show a month, or a show every two months do, but Chikara holds an average of 2 a month, and like you earlier said yourself, I think, it adds added prestige and mystique to the belts.

Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

In the 80's every show was a non title match. It sucked. Sure, the champs were there but they weren't being champs, defending their belt. But no, not every promotion is like that.

As I mentioned, a promotion doesn't have to defend a title if they have the luxury of a weekly show. Chikara does not and their shows aren't aired, you have to pay per show. That can get pricey. title matches are a great selling point.

Also, two shows a month are good but they seem to be jamming them together on one weekend, great for business but it creates a gap. It's still mostly a 4 week wait and there are few exceptions in their pipeline. All the info is available at their site.

I haven't seen a show yet, that is correct, I'm looking for a reason to.

Ha. Quackenbush is starting to look a bit like an in-shape MC Chris, especially with those expressions he uses.



I'm the black guy.
