1) Who Will Be theGrand Championof CHIKARA?
-In a recent blog by our Director of Fun, Wink Vavasseur, he made a proclamation that may change the landscape of CHIKARA for the foreseeable future. At every CHIKARA event the Grand Championship must now be defended! CurrentGrand ChampionEddie Kingston will make that title defense against another Gen1 CHIKARA original, Hallowicked. Will Kingston hold on to his precious championship, or will Hallowicked be the one to end Kingston’s record-breaking reign? Waiting in the wings for the winner of this match up is an anxious Green Ant, who challenges the winner in May.
2) How Do You Prepare for the Unknown?
-At “The Shoulder of Pallas,” Mike Quackenbush will try and keep his opponents guessing up until the verylast secondwith an unknown tag-teampartner. Who will Quack pick to face off against the thorns in his side, Jigsaw and The Shard? Will Quackenbush choose a former tag-teampartnerof his? Will he debut a newWrestleFactor trainee? No combination has been able to defeat the self-proclaimed “dream team” of Jigsaw and The Shard…yet.

These two former teammates (as The OsirianPortal) will tangle in Amasis’ return to a CHIKARA ring. Will Ophidian exorcise Amasis and his past, or will Amasis earn a measure ofrevengeagainst the man that tried to end his career?
4) Points In Play!
-One of CHIKARA’s most exciting matches has always been the 4-Corner EliminationTag TeamMatch, and we’ll bring just that at “The Shoulder of Pallas.” Points will be in play and there is a chance that one team walks away with an automatic title shot at the prestigious Campeonatos de Parejas! One question remains, who are the four teams who will tangle for a chance for a shot to face our current Campeones?
5) An Awesome ANTomico!
-Director of Fun Wink Vavassuer named Soldier Ant the leader of a mysterious team for CHIKARA’s Florida weekend. The identity of Soldier’s teammates came in the form of The Colony: Xtreme Force. Missile Assault Ant, Arctic Rescue Ant and OrbitAdventureAnt all debuted in Florida and had their first taste of CHIKARA victory. Will Soldier Ant be able to lead his team of The Colony: Xtreme Force against his old teammates of The Colony (Fire Ant, Green Ant, and assailANT) when they join with Frightmare!
6) One on One!
-During the biggest weekend in all of wrestling, the stars will look to shine for “The Intergalactic Luchadora” Saturyne, as she takes on Kobald of the Batiri. These two met twice last season, once in tag action and once in singles action, with one victory to each competitor. Now, at “The Shoulder of Pallas” both will look to settle the score once and for all!
