CHIKARA returns to the ECW Arena on January 25

CHIKARA: Kicking off Season 8 in style – in Philly, Reading & Easton!

Hot on the heels of CHIKARA’s biggest year to date, we are proud to announce that our wacky lucha circus is ready to kickstart Season 8 – we’ve got confirmed dates to announce in Easton, Reading and our homebase of South Philadelphia! We haven’t been to Reading since August, and while it is not a regular stop on the CHIKARA tour, we are pleased to be back in Berks County, even if just for a night. Up first is the season premiere, on Sunday afternoon, January 25th – with an event called “Revelation X” that will feature:
