Starting on Friday, March 27th, CHIKARA will host the largest pro-wrestling tournament of the year – King of Trios – at the (ECW) Arena! 48 wrestlers from around the world will converge on South Philadelphia for this annual tradition, and it promises to be the wrestling smorgasbord you simply can’t do without! Today, we confirm The UnStable: Vin Gerard, STIGMA and former ECW Superstar Colin Delaney, as the 15th (of a total 16) trio participating in the tournament! Both Vin and STIGMA (when he was known as Shane Storm) are former Young Lions Cup champions, and STIGMA has even won a King of Trios tournament in the past (the 2007 version)!
