For anyone in the New England area, Chikara will be in Kennebunk, Maine on Saturday March 4th. I'm planning on going and I was wondering if anyone else is? They always put on an awesome show and I'm excited to see them again.

Alright so I see that the other Chikara thread hasn't had much action so with a lot happening I figured I would make a new thread. I have followed Chikara since 2009 and love the story telling. If you aren't a subscriber to Chikaratopia, I suggest you do so! Great value for $7.99 a month and they even stream live shows at times. So let's try and get caught up:
Season 16 ended with the Finale in Chicago. NAZMALDUN was the big bad in the season led by Hallowicked, featuring the likes of ICARUS, FRIGHTMARE, MARK ANGELOSETTI, with ULTRAMANTIS BLACK in a wheelchair also kind of at the helm. I won't spoil too much but Chikara says goodbye to a few different characters.
National Pro Wrestling Day started out what we thought was Season 17, however it turned out to be the start of Season 18. So as National Pro Wrestling Day went on, it was also a tournament for the Young Lions Cup. Once again I don't want to spoil anything for anyone if you haven't seen it, but Ultramantis Black makes a return holding the Chikara Grand Championship and cuts a promo. King of Trios was announced for England this year, thus breaking my streak of attendance. Ending NPWD was a graphic saying there was a Secret Season 17 and will be Wrestling's first Bingeable content. The first three episodes of Season 17 were released a few hours after NPWD completed. This Season was filmed in secret, other than some fans that attended and other people in the know, it was a shock to us fans. There are 9 total secret episodes, another batch of 3 was just released this past Sunday. ONLY AVAILABLE ON CHIKARATOPIA.
Season 18 continued this past weekend in Maine and Connecticut. Chikara is running a few shows Wrestlemania weekend. One match that is featured is Ultramantis Black vs. GRADO. Which is a very cool matchup. Glad to finally see GRADO get his Chikara debut.
I will be back soon! I will keep this updated regularly.
Thanks for the update but don't see why we can't keep it to one thread.
if someone can at least update the title of the other one, wouldn't feel the need for another one. Especially since there's been 5 seasons since that thread title. Doesn't make it seem to enticing IMO.

Whatever happened to Chikara? I subscribed to their streaming service a few months ago and went through to watch a lot of their stuff as it used to be one of my favorite promotions. King of Trios is one of the best things in wrestling wach year IMO. I realized Chikara doesn’t really get much buzz anymore and was wondering if anyone else still keeps up with them or why, in your opinion, has it kind of faded away and what would help it get back to what it once was?
