A Legend and an icon; the man known worldwide as Samoa Joe was one of the men upon whose hard work, drive, and determination Ring of Honor was built. His World Title reign set records that still stand, over 7 years since it was brought to an end, but what happens when something that epic comes to an end? This is that tale, the story of how Samoa Joe cemented his position as a true legend whose legacy is still felt to this day by every ROH wrestler, especially the World champions that have followed.

From his tenure as the Pure Champion that marked him as the first man to hold two championships in ROH through his “5th Year Festival” bouts that marked the end of his ROH career, witness Samoa Joe’s clashes against Nigel McGuinness, Homicide, Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, and many others! Plus, available for the first time in several years, the epic 2005 Match Of The Year pitting Joe against the legendary Kenta Kobashi!

This 2-Disc DVD set collects 16 of Samoa Joe’s best bouts following the conclusion of his World Title reign. See for yourself why Joe is an ROH Legend, an Icon, and a first ballot Hall of Famer. See why the ROH legacy of Samoa Joe is one of total domination…

CHIKARA: Hitting the Greater Boston Area this Sunday!

The whole CHIKARA gang is coming to Everett, MA this Sunday afternoon, July 29th! We’ve got a tag team title bout, YLC tournament action and a whole lot more up our sleeve for ya when we play the Everett Rec Center at 4:00 pm! Remember all kids 12 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult! Here’s what’s in store for you:

-Our reigning champions, The Young Bucks will meet the challenge of Dasher Hatfield and “Mr. Touchdown” Mark Angelosetti in a best 2-out-of-3-falls title bout!

-Last year, Sara Del Rey and Icarus tore the house down in Chicago, IL as part of our massive “12 Large: Summit” round-robin tournament. Now, one of our most popular wrestlers ever will tangle once again with the despised “winged ring warrior”!

-The tenth annual YLC will see competitors 25 and younger vie for dominance, but only one of these four participants will advance to the tournament semi-finals being held in Milwaukee, WI!

-On their way to King of Trios 2012, The Spectral Envoy (UltraMantis Black, Hallowicked & Frightmare) must first contend with the Wink Vavasseur creation of Soldier Ant, combatANT and deviANT!

-Former YLC champ Jigsaw takes on current YLC competitor Jakob Hammermeier in singles action!

-Tag team specialist Marty Jannetty hand-picked Green Ant to team with him for action against the devious and delicious Ice Creams, but will the former WWF tag team champion gel with this unlikely partner?

-Sugar Dunkerton has been shut out of The Throwbacks by apparent team captain Mark Angelosetti, so he’s blazing a path to singles stardom…but the ever-bizarre Ophidian is in his way!

-Our Director of Fun Wink Vavasseur “assigned” Gran Akuma to the team of 3.0 by virtue of his mathematical formula “CHIKARAbermetrics.” Well, the algorithm gets put to the test when they meet up with the ultra-creepy, ultra-dangerous Batiri!

Plus: A Super-Secret 9th Bonus Match will be presented for those in attendance!
