What storylines are going on in the promotion right now?

Has the champ defended his title yet or is that gonna be a once a year thing like in mexico?
I started watching Chikara last year and the first shows I bought were the king of trios shows. I think they are a great introduction to the product and showcase the majority of their talent and style. I would suggest starting there or any of the compilation DVDS. I think someone already summed up the current story lines in this thread so i would also read that if you want to get caught up for the current product.

Their website Chikarapro.com is constantly updated with videos and blogs to keep their story lines going, so you can check that out too. Chikara is not everybody's cup of tea but they are definitely my favorite promotion currently so any wrestling fan should at least check them out.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Tournament returns for the June & July shows after Chikarasaurus Rex, hopefully this time we get a winner that can actually defend it.

Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

Ophidian uploaded a pretty cool video, and apparently, he's now ready to transform.

Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

Liked the MMA/Cabana update, not so much for Ophidian's vid. At least it'll be finished at C-Rex. And a new blog from 17:

Quote:
5/23/2012: I've always felt a strange connection to you, Mike. Take away our ring gear, and we're two pretty average looking guys. People don't stop us on the street or in the airport and say "Hey - are you a pro-wrestler?" I'm the guy that always just blended into the background...even in wrestling.

I studied the things you did. The tournaments you won. All the places around the globe you traveled to, the different people you learned from. You learned from the old masters and blended it all together into something new. I watched you become one of the most celebrated scientific wrestlers of the modern era.

And even though we had never met, never shook hands, not once did you offer me some advice, I followed your path. I even trained under some of the exact same people you did, some of the masters that made you what you are today. But the acclaim never came. The attention never came. Where was my applause? Where was my praise?

Fans never knew my name. Promoters never knew my name. Even now, the only name they know me by is "17."

Here is what I learned. I learned this when I first crossed paths with The Shard, and when we later met The Swarm: sometimes, you just need to take what is yours.

The plaudits, the critical acclaim you've received over the years, Mike - that should all be mine. If the people inside and outside the wrestling business are too thick or too near-sighted to see my talent, then I guess I'll just have to slap them across the face to get their attention.

I've done just that. I broke the up-and-coming protege. I broke the returning legend on the comeback trail. And I even broke the man who trained them. You aren't here to steal my spotlight any more, Mike. I took what is rightfully mine. Who is the most skilled technician on the CHIKARA roster now? Me. I have replaced you.

You pride yourself on always being prepared. Well in Vaughan, you were anything but. I suppose the "Master of a Thousand Holds" is a little more humble now. On June 2nd, as you watch, helplessly nursing your bad wrist from the sidelines, I won't just stop with a never-was like Tianlong or a has-been like Dragonfly. I want you to watch what I do to your tecnicos, to your allies and partners...to your students.

When I erase them, I erase your legacy.
17

Re: CHIKARA - Season 11 Discussion Thread

Got my King of Trios tickets, haven't been to a Chikara show since High Noon so I'm already pumped.

I like what they're doing with 17, beating old stars and wrecking a debuting student's career before he even got a start. Though I wonder if the Swarm is going to actually unmask a member of the Colony one of these times.
