CHIKARA: Dragon Gate Update – Jigsaw in, Ophidian out!

When CHIKARA presents Dragon Gate USA at the Arena next month, we’ll be showcased in a classic multiple man match, for which, participants have been gradually revealed over the last month. One of the announced wrestlers – Ophidian of the Osirian Portal – has suffered a serious arm injury, and is undergoing surgery to repair it. He is expected to miss significant time, and will certainly miss the Dragon Gate USA event.
While we are officially announcing Jigsaw as one of the tecnicos in the match today, we will not be making an announcement about a replacement for Ophidian for a little while longer. Since word has spread, virtually every full-time and part-time member of our roster has been campaigning to fill the vacant spot. Even tecnicos that would typically never team with F.I.S.T. or Amasis have voiced interest in getting the coveted spot. An announcement from our Director of Fun will follow in about a week.
Next Tuesday, June 30th, is the premiere of 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!

You can purchase PPV4: The Quest for Peace at: starting June 30!

FIP Tag Team Title Match Signed

The FIP Championship Committee has announced that on Saturday night August 1st, 2009 Erick Stevens and Roderick Strong will defend the FIP Tag Team Titles against The British Lions in a Texas Tornado Rules match. Sean Davis of Heartbreak Enterprises said, ?I have no idea why the match is being held under Texas Tornado Rules. This is Tag Team wrestling. Having all 4 men in the ring at once pretty much negates the entire premise of it being a TAG TEAM match doesn?t it? Well that’s ok. We already proved my British Lions can defeat Stevens and Strong last month, so doing it again will be a piece of cake.?

Roderick Strong replied, ?Yeah they got us last time out in the 6 man tag, but when these belts are on the line it’s a whole different story. Erick and I are leaving Crystal River with the belts. Count on it.?

YRR Issues a BIG Challenge

Things have not been going too well for the YRR of late, but apparently MSL has a plan to remedy that. ?Yeah the last few months have seen some upheaval within the YRR, but out of the Chaos comes clarity, and my goal for the YRR has never been clearer, get the YRR back to the top here in FIP, and the best way to do that? Why that’s simple, you walk up to the biggest baddest guy on the block and you smack him right in the teeth.

Last month in Crystal River Kory Chavis got involved in a matter that was of no concern to him when he stepped in to team with Kenny King against the YRR?So Kory Chavis, you and your partner Jon Davis are about to get your comeuppance. Chasyn Rance and Sal Rinauro are going to walk up to you two goofs, and smack you right in the teeth, and there’s nothing you can do about it?.

Kory Chavis responded, ?Chasyn Rance and Sal Rinauro are going to do WHAT??? There gonna smack WHO in the teeth??? I sincerely hope for your sakes that St.Laurent has made certain you are current on your health insurance, because that guy’s mouth just guaranteed you a trip to the hospital on August 1st boys.?

World Title Rematch hype heating up

The FIP office has been abuzz since the announcement of the rematch between Kenny King and Davey Richards for the World Title. Kenny King has been sending messages every day from his training facility in Las Vegas for World Champ Davey Richards.

Today’s message said, ?It’s all up to him. If he rushes me he will get knocked out quick. Or he can try to wrestle me and get punished. It’s all up to him. I respect him as a fighter but as a man, I don?t respect him. I think he’s a bum. I think he’s a B+ fighter ? but he’s a bum and I?ll walk right through him. I will see you after the fight and look you right into the eye and say, ?See I told you he was a bum.? I don?t have any respect for him. None.?

If Richards was taken aback by the brashness of the Pretty Boy Pitbull, he didn?t let on. ?Let him keep thinking I?m a bum. Let him think he’s going to walk right through me. I destroyed the myth of Tyler Black, I helped destroy the myth of the Briscoes, and of Steen and Generico, so I?ll have no problem destroying the human hype machine Kenny King. The thing Kenny doesn?t realize the difference between him and I is that he’s almost as good as he thinks he is, but I?m even better than he knows I am. He?ll find that out on August 1st.?
