Season 12 marches on after an explosive weekend in Florida, and in Secaucus, NJ the action will only get hotter! The show is nearly sold out, get your tickets today!
1) Who Will Be the Grand Champion of CHIKARA?
-In a recent blog by our Director of Fun, Wink Vavasseur, he made a proclamation that may change the landscape of CHIKARA for the foreseeable future. At every CHIKARA event the Grand Championship must now be defended! Current Grand Champion Eddie Kingston will make that title defense against another Gen1CHIKARA original, Hallowicked. Will Kingston hold on to his precious championship, or will Hallowicked be the one to end Kingston’s record-breaking reign? Waiting in the wings for the winner of this match up is an anxiousGreen Ant, who challenges the winner in May.
2) How Do You Prepare for the Unknown?
-At “The Shoulder of Pallas,” Mike Quackenbush will try and keep his opponents guessing up until the very last second with an unknown tag-team partner. Who will Quack pick to face off against the thorns in his side, Jigsawand The Shard? Will Quackenbush choose a former tag-team partner of his? Will he debut a new Wrestle Factor trainee? No combination has been able to defeat the self-proclaimed “dream team” of Jigsaw and The Shard…yet.
3) The Inevitable Clash!
–Ophidian has been haunted by Amasis at every turn, dating back to late in Season 11. Now, the clash that was bound to occur will happen at WrestleCon! These two former teammates (as The Osirian Portal) will tangle in Amasis’ return to a CHIKARA ring. Will Ophidian exorcise Amasis and his past, or will Amasis earn a measure of revenge against the man that tried to end his career?
4) Points In Play!
-One of CHIKARA‘s most exciting matches has always been the 4-Corner Elimination Tag Team Match, and we’ll bring just that to “The Shoulder of Pallas.” Points will be in play and there is a chance that one team walks away with an automatic title shot at the prestigious Campeonatos de Parejas! The Devastation Corporation (Max Smashmaster & Blaster McMassive) will look to get back on track after their title shot in Florida, while The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & “Mr. Touchdown” Mark Angelosetti) will just look to be on the same page. The Spectral Envoy (Ultramantis Black & Blind Rage) return to the ring to work to capturing CHIKARA gold, and The Batiri (Obariyon & Kodama) will look to spoil everyone’s fun and steal points at WrestleCon.
5) A Score to Settle!
-The first two rounds of Archibald Peck vs. Tim Donst have ended in disqualification. At WrestleCon will we have a definite ending to this bitter Season 12 feud? How will followers of Donst Jakob Hammermeier and Veronicaplay into this contest as both Peck and Donst will attempt to end this bitter feud with their hand raised in victory.
6) An Awesome ANTomico!
-Director of Fun Wink Vavassuer named Soldier Ant the leader of a mysterious team for CHIKARA‘s Florida weekend. The identity of Soldier’s teammates came in the form of The Colony: Xtreme Force. Missile Assault Ant, Arctic Rescue Ant and Orbit Adventure Ant all debuted in Florida and had their first taste of CHIKARAvictory. Will Soldier Ant be able to lead his team of The Colony: Xtreme Force to victory against his old teammates of The Colony (Fire Ant, Green Ant, and assailANT) when they join with Frightmare?
7) Eight-Man Tag Action!
-Our current Campeonatos de Parejas, 3.0 (Scott “Jagged” Parker & Shane Matthews) know their WrestleCon opponents quite well. In a recent blog, Parker announced that 3.0 would face off against the full strength of F.I.S.T. (Icarus, Chuck Taylor, Johnny Gargano, and Sugar Dunkerton). Needing partners, 3.0 reunited with their ally Gran Akuma, but needed a fourth member to complete the quartet. After a conversation with Rick “The Model” Martel, Parker’s teammate came calling: Marty Jannetty! The former WWF Tag-Team Champion (and, by coincidence, Icarus’ wrestling idol) will team with this trio of partners to take on CHIKARA‘s deadliest group, F.I.S.T.
8) One on One!
-During the biggest weekend in all of wrestling, the stars will look to shine for “The Intergalactic Luchadora”Saturyne, as she takes on Kobald of the Batiri. These two met twice last season, once in tag action and once in singles action, with one victory to each competitor. Now, at “The Shoulder of Pallas” both will look to settle the score once and for all!
