The Complete “Chikarasaurus Rex” iPPV Card!
This weekend we’re going to unleash a savage summer spectacular that simply must be called “Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur” and it will be sent out to the waiting eyes of the world through the streaming magic of our partners GFL.tv !
All your CHIKARA faves and special guest stars The Young Bucks (of Ring of Honor fame) and Colt Cabana (from The Art of Wrestling podcast!) will be featured on our June 2 iPPV from the Trocadero Theatre! This is just one block over from the Pennsylvania Convention Center which will play host to the Wizard World Convention that very same weekend! If you can’t be at The Troc to experience it live, fear not – you can already order the pay-per-view by visiting this link!
So what’s on tap for this monumental event? Here’s the complete card:
1) 10-MAN WARFARE!
-Five of CHIKARA’s finest will unite to face the threat of GEKIDO (17, The Shard, deviANT, combatANT & assailANT)! See it live as our reigning Grand Champion Eddie Kingston teams with Grand Slam winner Jigsaw and the current King of Trios champs The Colony for a titanic ten-man-tag!

2) LUCHA DE APUESTA: MASK vs. HAIR!
-Our first Young Lions Cup champion ever, Hallowicked meets the self-proclaimed “greatest” YLC champ of all time, Tim Donst! More than pride and glory are at stake in this match, as Hallowicked’s very identity is on the line against the shaggy mane of Donst!
3) FOR LOS CAMPEONATOS DE PAREJAS!
-Two-time champs F.I.S.T. (Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano) meet the challenge of ROH stars Nick & Matt Jackson (The Young Bucks)! Per tradition, this will be a best 2-out-of-3-falls contest!
4) LADDER MATCH!
-Gran Akuma’s CHIKARA career hangs in the balance – literally – above the ring in this special Ladder Match against his ex-partner Icarus! To make certain this wild match has some semblance of order to it, Gregory Iron has been assigned as a special guest referee!
5) INTERGENDER HANDICAP BOUT!
-The “Queen of Wrestling” Sara Del Rey & rookie sensation Saturyne team up to tackle the trio of Obariyon, Kodama & Kobald (The Batiri)!
6) CHIKARA’S MOST DEVIOUS DUKE IT OUT!

7) LOSER LEAVES TOWN!
-Former foes Colt Cabana and Mixed Martial Archie combine forces to combat The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & “Mr. Touchdown” Mark Angelosetti)! But in an added twist, the person who takes the fall in this one will be subject to a daunting stipulation – Loser Leaves Town!
