CHIKARA: 20 wrestlers confirmed for Young Lions Cup VII!

In mid-August, our annual summer classic, the Young Lions Cup, returns for its seventh incarnation! In all, 24 relative rookies (all age 25 or younger) will compete in Easton, with the tournament final to be held in Philadelphia. In addition to scores of great talent (like CMLL minis Mascarita Dorada & Pierrothito) coming for non-tournament action, we’ve picked a great field of talent that is almost full. So far, these 20 participants have been announced for Young Lions Cup VII:

From CHIKARA:
1) Lince Dorado
2) Hydra
3) Grizzly Redwood
4) Tim Donst
5) Soldier Ant
6) Player Uno
7) Frightmare
8) KC “Cloudy” Day
9) Player Dos
10) and the re-debuting Create-A-Wrestler!

From elsewhere:
11) El Leonino
12) Jason Hades
13) Yellow Dog
14) Chimaera
15) Ryan Cruz
16) Darin Corbin
17) Brendan Michael Thomas
18) Trik Davis

…and just signed on for the tournament over the last two days are the ninteenth competitor, Carpenter Ant, and the twentieth – Prince Mustafa Ali! In years past, the Colony had limited their participant in each YLC to just one ant, so the addition of Carpenter Ant marks a deviation from their usual methods. This will be our first chance to see the new ant in action! Mustafa Ali, long-reigning TV champ of midwestern independent Elite Pro Wrestling will be making his CHIKARA debut next month in Easton as well!

All through July, you can get CHIKARA’s fourth ever “Pod-Per-View,” an original program with never-before-seen content available for download right on your computer or portable thingy/whatever! Included are matches pitting F.I.S.T. against Cheech Hernandez & KC “Cloudy” Day, as well as The Osirian Portal in non-title action against The Colony. We also dug up some clips from a recent 6-man tag match where Mike Quackenbush squared off against Mexican mat master Negro Navarro, in an exchange of holds that pits the two submission artists against one another. CHIKARA’s own Bryce Remsburg hosts the (approx.) 40-minute program, and sheds some light on CHIKARA’s first out-of-state ventures for 2009, in addition to tons of great action you won’t find anywhere else!
