comes to Canada only once this year and Montrealers, you won’t want to miss us when we visit onAugust 17th
! We’ll be at Centre LGH for an afternoon of action! Great seats are still available and on sale here
! Five scheduled bouts have already been announced:
In the main event, Icarus will make his very first defense of the CHIKARA Grand Championship since winning the title from Eddie Kingston at “You Only Live Twice”! But there’s a catch – we don’t know who his opponent will be yet! As per a CHIKARA Event Center edict from our Director of Fun Mike Quackenbush, in order to earn a Grand Championship match, a wrestler must earn three points by winning three successive singles matches, but if they lose a match, they return to square one with zero points! Currently, the only person with three points is The Ecuadorian Aristocrat Juan Francisco de Coronado, but others like Jimmy Jacobs, Worker Ant and Ophidian already have two points!
Smooth Sailin’ Ashley Remington will drop anchor in le Port de Montréal to wrestle The Kentucky GentlemanChuck Taylor one final time! When the two met in Manhattan at “The Living Daylights”, Remington got the win but the referee didn’t see Taylor’s feet on the ropes! Taylor complained to everyone from his mother to the Director of Fun that it was unfair! The ever accommodating Remington agreed and a gentleman’s agreement was struck! Ashley and “Charles” will wrestle one more time to determine who the best man honestly and truly is!
In a trios match, the recently-formed threesome of 3peck0 (Archibald Peck, “Big Magic” Shane Matthews, andScott “Jagged” Parker) will battle three of the biggest and baddest members of Sidney Bakabella’s Wrecking Crew in Max Smashmaster, Flex Rumblecrunch, and Jaka! This is only 3peck0’s second match together, while The Wrecking Crew has been wrestling as a team for over a year! Can Matthews, Parker, and Peck battle back from a power and experience deficit to win or will The Wrecking Crew live up to their name and destroy a trio of CHIKARA’s top tecnicos?
In a singles match, Kodama from The Batiri will face The BDK’s Nøkken and both wrestlers are out for vengeance! Kodama wants to avenge the loss of Kobald at “You Only Live Twice” and he will get a chance against one of The Flood’s powerhouses! The elusive Nøkken is still enraged over the death of the Tursas at “The Living Daylights” and will take his fury out on any member of CHIKARA in his way! Kodama has a huge hurdle to overcome if he is to be victorious against the giant Nøkken!
One of CHIKARA’s most celebrated teams, The Colony, and the devious duo of Los Ice Creams will be part of a Four Corner Elimination Match! Their opponents haven’t been announced, but they could include any other tag team from CHIKARA or The Flood! Points are in play and no matter who joins them in this match, you can be sure the new Campeones de Parajas, The Throwbacks, will be watching and scouting possible challengers to their titles!
