if there's anyone still left in that promotion that deserves the title its Dasher. The dude could have been stuck with that awful create a wrestler gimmick still, but the Dasher one was such big hit it stuck.

oh yeah and I guess Ophidian too

Dasher is a sad tale. I see him on Twitter practically begging for bookings and he rarely is wrestling outside of CHIKARA. And when his big chance to win the title comes, he doesn't get it. Seems like an odd way to end the year.

I really hope CHIKARA doesn't do another secret season again too.

Thing to keep in mind is that Dasher isn't completely out of the title picture. He still has an automatic title shot. Here's a list of all the Golden Opportunity winners from the past couple years:

Challenge of the Immortals Winners

Kimber Lee: Cashed in her opportunity at the end of the Season 15 finale, defeating Hallowicked for the Grand Championship.
Jervis Cottonbelly: Never cashed in and likely never will.
El Hijo del Ice Cream: Cashed in for the tag titles against NRG and seemingly won them. Los Ice Creams were stripped of the titles later because they only pinned NRG once when tag title matches are always best 2 out of 3.
Ice Cream Jr: Cashed in for the tag titles against Rumblebees and succeeded.

Infinite Gauntlet Winners

Hallowicked (Season 16): Set up a title match against Kimber Lee and won the title back.
Dasher Hatfield (Season 17): Never cashed in.
Solo Darling (Season 18): Never cashed in.

Unless it's been explicitly stated somewhere, I'm not sure whether or not Infinite Gauntlet title shots work like Money in the Bank, since Hallowicked's was announced ahead of time and he's a heel.

Going into Season 19, Hype Rockwell is the only guy with three points.

Quack's OCD won't let him do a novel idea like that twice.

...right?

Quack ran three invasion storylines in a row so it's sadly very possible.

The roster page has updated and we've reached TNA "not enough for a Royal Rumble" level. Though it doesn't include the dudes who showed up after the Missile Assault Man match. That, and Lucas Calhoun has stated on Twitter that he's coming back to deal with that.

Notable guys missing from the active roster page and added to the alumni section:

- The Big Deal/Hornswoggle, who didn't appear at all in 2016.

- Ashley Vox and Delmi Exo, despite Ashley's new gimmick of Oceana. Judging from her Twitter, it's probably more that they don't have an Oceana profile image yet.

- Max Smashmaster, who as mentioned earlier, is now retired.

- Missile Assault Man, who has gotten rid of his Twitter. He looks to be completely gone from Chikara, meaning an end to jokes about Zimbabwe.

- Mr. Azerbaijan, which is just as well. DUSTIN is still on the roster.

- Rock Lobster, who had one match in Season 18 and just kind of vanished.

- Wani, who was last seen dropping the Young Lions Cup on an Hour of Power back in June.

Fake Amasis doesn't have a profile to begin with and doesn't show up on either roster page.

Did the Furies stable ever have a big ending or anything? Just seem like the group kind of dissolved with no payoff or anything.

I guess the payoff was Fire Ant beating seven shades of poo poo out of Frightmare at King of Trios. Frightmare hasn't been seen since.

Coincidentally, Fire Ant just posted a blog post about this. Basically that the Furies was a stupid concept because they were a team in name only. There was no real solidarity and everyone else was focused on their own thing. Now he's a Colony of One.
