how long until one of the Ants sets up a family-friendly comedy lucha promotion with an all-caps romanized Japanese name, that very definitely isn't CHIKARA and where quack is banned from going within 200 feet of any venues they run
KAIJU BIG BATTEL already exists though????

It's like goldy or bronzy, but made of iron.

Merlok and Ultramantis already own a small promotion together (Lehigh Valley Athletics Council). Might be too small to expand.

I thought he was content with his non wrestling job that he was ok with not going to one of the big feds.

I'd be happy if the GCW weekend gives some of these Chikara kids a chance

I wonder how many ex-CHIKARA peeps are gonna get rid of their old gimmicks and start fresh. That seems to be what Razerhawk is doing.

the Hawkz gimmicks were pretty much unknowns and not as endearing as the Ants gimmicks were imo. Like unless Quack is demanding their masks back or he'll sue then i don't see any reason why others wouldn't keep the gimmicks, besides maybe boomer hatfield whose gimmick doesn't really work anymore

Quack doesn't have enough money to sue Condron into giving the Jervis property back, he's not suing his kids.

I mean, the Hawkz gimmick isn't good? After 2 years as Razerhawk, I'd be ready to get a new gimmick, too. Plus, who'd have the heart to tell Molly McCoy that she didn't retire Razerhawk after all?

Also, gently caress Quackenbush, gently caress all the people involved.

And those post-show emails are the height of unprofessionalism, that I'm sure he somehow thought were him trying to bring professionalism to the industry. Just the dirt worst.

I feel like they weren't so much him trying to bring professionalism as it was imparting his wisdom as a learned scholar of professional wrestling whose mastery of the sport was far and beyond anyone else's. I honestly think he probably thought he was doing people a favor and helping them out with this and probably even patted himself on the back because he was such a good guy giving this advice away for free when he could charge people for a seminar to impart this knowledge.

It's all just so loving smarmy.

It's all so funny because he could have done the same thing in bulleted form in person or privately to each email, but he has figured the best thing for everyone was to write a DVD review you'd find on the Torch's site or something. Except it's from the guy that pays and for some trains you.
