Chad has done a great job over the last several days sharing his thoughts and opinions on Chikara Pro. He is a huge fan of the company, so much so that he once traveled 13 hours (I believe) by car to watch a show live in person. He's extremely busy today and asked me if I'd fill in for today as we continue to countdown to the big Internet Pay Per View High Noon (Sunday, November 13).
But here's the deal, I'm a novice fan when it comes to Chikara. Most of what I know is from what Chad has told me. He's loaned me a few DVDs over the years, so I am familiar with some of the wrestlers. So I consider myself an outsider looking in when it comes to Chikara. I will say that from what I've seen, I do enjoy.

Of course on the serious side there's stars like Mike Quackenbush, Eddie Kingston, Sara Del Rey, and the Kings of Wrestling (I know Claudio has moved on) These guys (and gals) are poetry in motion in the ring. Can't say enough good things about the work they do.
Tag teams are also emphasized in Chikara. I have ranted and raved since starting this blog more than a year ago about the need for more tag team wrestling in the WWE and even TNA. Chikara meets that objective with special tournaments focused on tag team wrestling, including the King of Trios tournament. I also like the fact that Chikara has invited some of the WWE old timers back. Like I've said before, I'm a fool for old school and enjoyed seeing Demolition team up with the One Man Gang at the King of Trios a few years ago. These legends didn't win, which they shouldn't, but it was still great to see them back for one night. Sean Waltman also returned to his 1-2-3 Kid roots recently at a Chikara show, and I hear Marty Jannetty is a trainer at the school. Awesomeness!
