Re: Chikara - Season 12 Discussion Thread
I assume he meant the REAL reason.
Quack probably didn't just decide to take half a year off for funsies.
There's likely a reason beyond story purposes.
The original rumor was financial problems that began around Joshimania (a dumb idea that probably did lose them some real money) but that never made a ton of sense to me, as the company did nothing but expand into new markets post-Joshimania which doesn't seem like the strategy of a company losing money. Also how would the way out of those financial problems be to stop running the brand everyone knows and start running 8 other companies know one is familiar with?
The other rumor was that Quack was getting a divorce (possibly due to banging Saturyne?) and his wife owned the Chikara copyrights so he had to shut down, but that's never made any sense to me either. Wouldn't he probably have to shut down the website and message board and stuff too?
So I have no idea.
But there's probably a reason besides it seeming like a cool story idea. (probably, Quack does seem like a bit of a crazy person)
