Chikara’s birthday was on 25 May 2002, which it celebrates every year with Aniversario – sometimes a show, sometimes a weekend tour, it varies. It’s one of the fixtures in their calendar, but some way behind King of Trios, or for that matter the season finale; it’s more of a well established marker post in the year. Frankly, the Challenge of the Immortals tournament format that dominated 2015 doesn’t lend itself to a major show at this point, since virtually every story is building to something much further down the line. The result is a relatively normal looking card, but with a bigger than normal crowd.
When and where: It’s 24 May 2015 (the day after the previous show), and we’re in the Palmer Center in Easton, Pennsylvania. This is essentially Chikara’s home venue, if you leave aside their actual training facility. It’s a community centre gym, but a pretty substantial one. We’ll be back here for King of Trios later in the year. It’s a sell out. There’s a prominent advert at the back of the hall for Electric Monkey energy drink, which is a real thing, and is product placement. Remember that, it’ll be coming up in a bit.
