CHIKARA: "Deuces Wild" hits Hellertown this Saturday, April 19th!

This Saturday, the 19th of April, CHIKARA rolls back into the American Legion Hall in Hellertown, and before we get there, we're announcing all but one of the matches that will make up the card. Complete with two titles bouts - one for the Young Lions Cup, the other for the NWA World Junior Heavyweight belt - and a host of your CHIKARA favorites, our card "Deuces Wild" is set to feature:

"Lightning" Mike Quackenbush (Champion)
El Pantera (Challenger)

The Colony vs. The Osirian Portal

Cheech & Cloudy vs. Mitch Ryder & Shayne Hawke

Helios (c) vs. Lince Dorado

Brodie Lee vs. Shane Storm

Tim Donst vs. UltraMantis Black

Player Uno & Create-A-Wrestler vs. Chuck Taylor & Icarus

Worker Ant vs. Vin Gerard

Gran Akuma vs. Jimmy Olsen

In the month of May, we'll be heading to New England for a pair of shows - including our Massachusetts debut! Unfortunately, our original destination, Worcester, has seen our chosen venue close down, and we have moved our Friday, May 23rd card to Framingham. Complete information is posted below. Any advance tickets issued for the Worcester event will be honored in Framingham, or if need be, a refund will be issued to the ticket holder. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Advance tickets for our next 6 live events are on sale right now! Visit our online store and pick up your copy of the first issue of the CHIKARA comic book (Season 7, Volume 1)!

Updated Results from NWA Empire's 2nd Anniversary show 4/12 at the St. Johnsburg Fire Hall in North Tonawada, New York:

1. "Mr. 300" JP Hawke defeated "Mr.Ass" Dewey Gunn

2. NWA Empire Lord of the Dance Champion Stargazer defeated "The Bull of Black Mountain" Gabe Saint in a non-title match

3. Blackjack Phoenix pinned Tommy Mandrake in a battle royal earning a title shot at Empire's next show June 21st. Featured in the battle royal were Phoenix, Mandrake, "Glamorous" Glenn Dillon, Mike McGee, "Party Boy" Brett Mednik, Troy Buchanan, "Wonderboy" Zach Atticus, Steve Davidson, and Rex Atkins

4. Ron Falco (w/Mandi Stroyer) defeated Brandon Thurston
After the match, Falco grabbed the mic and called out Brodie Lee for costing him and Eric Everlast, Final Solution, a victory against Rhythm & Booze and the last Empire show and forcing them to no longer team up. Lee didn't come out, so Falco called Lee a chicken and said that at the next Empire show, he was challenging Brodie Lee to a match and that the show wouldn't go on unless Lee faced him man to man in the ring.

5. NWA Upstate Tag Team Champions Rhythm & Booze (w/Colonel Johnny Kayfabe) defeated Dunn & Marcos (w/Nikki Jett) when Buddy Delmar pinned Dunn using the ropes for leverage.

6. "Mastiff" Will Christiansen defeated NWA National Champion Pepper Parks with a top rope diving headbutt after suffocating Parks with a plastic bag while referee Brett Vincent was down. Before the match, Mastiff said that Jimmy Olsen wasn't in the building because he was booked for another show. But he feels that the real reason was because Olsen is scared of him and said he hoped Jimmy would be watching his match because the next time he steps in the ring with him, he would be in for the fight of his life.

7. "Inferno" Johnny Adams defeated "The Rican Sensation" Maximo Suave

8. Violence & Volume (Ice & Chris Cooper) defeated Evan McCloud & "The Exceptional Icon" Eric Everlast when Cooper pinned McCloud after hitting him with the NWA Empire Tag Title belt. The match was scheduled to be an Empire tag team title match, but Evan came out and said his brother Kyle was still in the hospital after injuries sustained at the hands of Rhythm & Booze.

9. NWA Empire Champion Jonny Puma defeated "Amazing" Kevin Grace
