I'm looking forward to seeing Quack v Mr. Touchdown. I enjoy seeing them hype it up on Twitter!

I love Chikara, but I don't watch it as much as I want to or should do really!

And King doesn't have much of a feud going into the weekend.
That's cool, and I'm sure the wrestling is great.

But I'm not big on tournaments. I ordered a Pro Wrestling Evo pay per view (EVO 8)and I thought it was kind of a let down.

I'm more storyline driven but Chikara does that too, I hear. I gotta check 'em out somewhere down the line.

KOT is pretty heavily story driven with all the Chikara teams. They also set up some pretty awesome tournament storylines that made the final rounds much more exciting.

I am waiting patiently (or should I say somewhat patiently) for my King of Trios dvds to arrive.

Damn cross border shipping times.

Sorry for the double post, but I just read over at Wrestling Observer that King of Trios was only the second profitable weekend for CHIKARA this year.

That's a shame. I mean I'm sure they do okay on dvd sales which helps a lot and in the long run makes more shows profitable, but I wish CHIKARA made more money. Such a fun promotion. Might have to buy more CHIKARA dvd's than I have been.

Really? Does that mean they turned a profit from just the weekend on it's own?

Like before DVDs/MP4s?

that's what I took it as meaning. So gate plus merhcandise sale at the events for revenue I would assume. And sponsorship I guess if they get any.

That's not surprising really. I'm sure that Chikara makes a high percentage of it's money from DVD/Download sales. Getting enough people to cover the cost of the venue, the cost of getting the ring to the venue, the cost of paying the performers, and whatever other expenses come up would be tough with some of the markets that Chikara runs in. I get that they want to have shows in as many different markets as possible but sometimes I'm a little puzzled by the places they chose to run. Like they're in Alabama soon (or already were I'm not sure). Now I don't recall them ever running there before and I don't see them getting a huge gate for the show. They can't bring in too many local names because the Chikara fan base watches Chikara because they have their own wrestlers and the storylines those wrestlers are involved in.

It's good if ticket sales alone were enough to cover all the expenses for KOT. They brought in a lot of big names that needed to get paid and they also flew quite a few people over from Japan. The costs for running this show must have been a lot higher than usually but they turned a profit so good for them.
