The end of the world is coming on December 21, 2012.  If you don't believe me, just ask the Batiri.  This threesome is made up of the Obaryion and Kodama (the demons with the green face paint) and their goblin buddy Kobald. The threesome has made quite an impact on Chikara Pro and other indie wrestling companies.

According to their official website the Batiri was selected by the devious Ultra Mantis Black (I'll be posting about him later this month) to wreck havoc on the world.  Sinn Bodhi (who wrestled very briefly for the WWE as Kizarny) trained this trio.  They plan to kick off a Batiri Apocalypse and rule the world as we know it.

If you follow @Batiri on Twitter, they'll keep you informed on their plans for world domination.  On a recent episode of From the Rafters Radio we interviewed Kobald.  To say the goblin is spooky may be the understatement of the year.  His demonic tones had the hosts of the show on edge the entire time.  We're not certain, but we believe he may have cast some sort of spell on the station that night as whenever the Batiri are mentioned on the air something inevitably goes haywire.

My first Chikara show in person I got to see all three members wrestle.  Obaryion and Kodama were on the losing end to The Throwbacks and Kobald ended up losing to Mixed Martial Archie at the "Hot Off the Griddle" event.  The next day at "The Contaminated Cowl" Kodama and Kobald lost in a tag team elimination match and Obaryion used a flying DDT to defeat the very talented Sarah Del Rey.  Both shows were a lot of fun and it was interesting see the Batiri out before and after their matches interacting with fans and selling merchandise.

Speaking of their merchandise you should really check it out on their page.  They sell a mystery bag of items.  It's only $6, but you never know what you're going to get.  So if you ever get a package from Bled Island, I would be careful when opening it.  Remember, the Batiri plan on ruling the world by December 21, are you with them or against?  I'm with them, as I picked the demons to win the King of Trios this year.  If we're around in 2013, don't bet against them.
