Wink has come up with the CHIKARAbermetrics! you might be like me in thinking, eeeh.

5/10/2012: CHIKARA fans!
It's your Director of Fun, Wink Vavasseur, checking in again! Did you catch my video update yesterday? Those are new cufflinks!

Until recently, you may have noticed there's been a bit of "radio silence" from DoF headquarters, but trust that I've been cooking up something tasty! And in addition to that delicious meal, I've also got some exciting CHIKARA news!

I was brought into this professional wrestling enterprise as a man with experience and success in the business world. My specialty has always been finding kernels of potential in otherwise middling ventures, and then nurturing, restructuring and revolutionizing those kernels into spectacularly successful ears of corn (to follow the metaphor to its logical conclusion.) The phrase "business acumen" gets thrown around a lot. I don't know what it means, but I'm told I've got it in spades.

That being said, I still don't feel like I've properly Wink-erized CHIKARA. Yes, certainly, I've been successful over the past year or so; I can't deny myself all the credit I'm due. The accolades have come my way, sure. However, it hasn't been the resounding success to which I've become so accustomed with all my previous business ventures. Something's off, and I think I've finally put my finger on it: after ten years, CHIKARA has gotten stale, predictable; it's gotten into a real rut. I need to do something big, something to really stir it up, and I've been wracking my brain trying to wrap my head around this problem. The thing that's been tripping me up these past few months is that I've been looking at CHIKARA as a regular business, when it has belonged in a different category altogether – Professional Wrestling (CHIKARA, et al.) is a sport. And what one thing has revolutionized professional sports over the past decade? Statistical analysis. That's right, I'm bringing sabermetrics to CHIKARA!! I'm the Brad-Pitt-as-Billy-Beane of CHIKARA, only more handsome (I kid!)!



Over the past month, I've hunkered down with some top-notch eggheads and whiz kids, and created a program I've dubbed CHIKARAbermetrics! This program will look beyond mere win/loss records and size comparisons, going more in-depth with statistics like Pins Above Replacement (PAR) and Tag-Independent Earned Pin Average (TIEPA). It will weight the frequency of two-counts, and quantify other intangibles into numbers that I can insert into Pythagorean Expectation equations. Using these numbers, I will create match-ups and reorganize tag-teams and stables in a way that will capitalize on the skills of the CHIKARA roster and reinvigorate the sport of professional wrestling. As an example, take the CHIKARA wrestler with the highest Value Over Replacement Wrestler (VORW): Sara Del Rey. If she were to, say, be added to the group F.I.S.T., they would be mathematically unbeatable. On the other hand, take the other hand: imagine a trio made up of all left-handers! The mathematical possibilities are endless.

In honor of CHIKARA's ten year anniversary of the same thing over and over again, I've decided to institute CHIKARAbermetrics to spice up Year # 11! The drought is over, wrestling fans. CHIKARA will be exciting once again!

WV
I think I'll need a little time to get into this, it confuses me upon reading it at first.

It didn't grab me until "imagine a trio made up of all left-handers!", but now I'm sold.

I think it's going to be the explanation on future matches and stable shuffling that looks random and the chaos that comes from that.

And for Night 1 of Aniversario Weekends an Atomico Increible match:

17/Kingston happened. Kingston won clean in less than 6 minutes.

I think this will be resolved with a match with Quack. (who I think is only kayfabe injured)

May 20th in Manhattan.

Donst has posted a blog asking Delirious to partner up. He's suggested all the BDK's bad things, they were all Ares fault! Yeah, that's right! Tim Donst was Delirious' greatest ally all along!

Man, that King/Lee match for the Grand Title was awesome. They beat the shit ouf of each other. ***3/4 I love how King is all serious and the undercard is mostly comedic.
