- Chikara lost a TON of people for one reason or another over the last year. Kimber Lee, Heidi Lovelace, Kevin Condron, Amasis, Soldier Ant/Drew Gulak, Blaster McMassive, Flex Rumblecrunch, Jervis Cottonbelly, Joey Styles, Ashley Remington, Leonard F. Chikarason, Shynron, Eddie Kingston, Abominous Rex, Jaka and I think Jakob Hammermeier. Even Chuck Taylor had a falling out with Quack only to smooth things over later on. Most of them are still up on the roster page for some reason.

Jesus! Where did everyone go? WWE couldn't have signed ALL these people, right?

With all due respect I disagree.

Same, especially now that they've gotten their head out of their rear end booking-wise and are back to being fun again.

On the one hand, this hidden season thing is incredibly stupid and Quack is turning into indy wrestling's Vince McMahon more and more every year.

On the other hand, I will endure literally any booking direction, no matter how stupid or inscrutable, that puts the belt on Ultramantis Black.

What makes me sad about Chikara now is that before Quack's stupid idea to shut the promotion down for a year, they had a lot of buzz and really fun characters on their shows. All that went down the drain for that Ashes storyline, and what's worse is the crowds who still go see them aren't nearly as reactive as they were pre-Ashes.

Please Quack

Kinda surprised he never went this route with Dasher Hatfield, really.

That poo poo sounds stupid. Max Smashmaster's last match in wrestling was him telling the timekeeper "I'm done with being a wrestler, just ring the bell I'm going home"?

What happened with Chikara that it became such a sad place? Apart from the obvious things of taking a year off, then the year of everyone being murdered.

All their good talent got signed away and Quack went off his OCD medication.

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.

Why is Shane Storm not crossed out? I thought he retired.

Considering the money-maker KoT is for Chikara they will almost certainly be holding it in Redding

That's the first time "money-maker" and "Reading" have occupied the same sentence in at least 30 years.
