Re: Chikara - Season 12 Discussion Thread

Apparently the owners of the building were displeased with the new tenant (the one who shut the place down for wrestling to renovate it into a concert venue) when no progress had been made after like 6 months. So now it's being re-renovated to get back to wrestling ready or something.

Really it was just a dumb move by everyone involved by the sound of it.

Probably lost a lot of wrestling companies money, lost the building money, lost the renter money, etc.

You have a building that's one claim to fame is wrestling and has wrestling companies renting it out like 4-5 days a week so of course you try to remove all of it's wrestling.

Re: Chikara - Season 12 Discussion Thread

Never understood why it was trying to be removed (from wrestling or entirely) to begin with. Promotions like Chikara & CZW always drew big crowds and had an established fanbase in Philly with that location. Why kill it when it was still creating a buzz? T'was dumb.

I think the woman who owned the lease thought a shitty warehouse in an awful neighborhood would make for a delightful concert venue certain to attract gigantic crowds on a nightly basis.

She was wrong. It only attracts wrestling and we're damn proud of it.

Re: Chikara - Season 12 Discussion Thread

DJ Hyde appeared on the Mike & Tom Show back in June to promote TOD and said that Roger has plans to basically do the same thing that the woman who bought it wants to do. He also said that he doubts wrestling will be back in The Arena for a verrry long time, if ever. But then again DJ Hyde says a lot of things

Re: Chikara - Season 12 Discussion Thread

I thought the whole point of the announcement at national pro wrestling day was that wrestling would be back in the arena by the end of the year. Otherwise what would have been the point of announcing that at a wrestling show?

Re: Chikara - Season 12 Discussion Thread

Well to be fair my source was DJ Hyde on an internet radio show. He did say that he was in it just before he left for Japan (His most recent tour. May-ish maybe?) and said that it's still stripped down though and it would cost a fair penny to get it to the point that it could even contain a wrestling show. Maybe they'll use NPWD 2014 as a fundraiser to get that started.

Personally I'm hoping it's re-opened like most others. From what I hear about the area it's in, indy wrestling is probably the only thing you could successfully do with that building.

That is why it's called organized crime.
