So, then. As trailed last month, we’re going to take a crack at covering the 2015 Chikara season. We won’t be doing every show – probably just the main ones to check in on how they’re doing, and I might do them as reviews rather than previews, given that I suspect relatively few readers of this blog are actually watching. Obviously we’re moving here into territory which far fewer people will be familiar with here, but quite aside from being a far more entertaining use of my time, I do think Chikara makes an interesting contrast with the dominant product.
This is also going to be a very long post, since there’s a lot to set up here – not just the show, but the promotion as a whole and many of the characters. And I haven’t had as much time as I’d have liked to cut down the first draft, but hey, the show’s on Sunday.
Let’s start with a primer on how things work in Chikara.
