While the mainstream wrestling world may have no idea what CHIKARA Wrestling is, the promotion has a huge cult following. According to PWInsider.com on March 20, their big return show is now sold out, but there are still tickets available through a CHIKARA bus trip deal.
CHIKARA shut down last year at a controversial event where the main event was stopped midway through the match and management had security begin to tear down the ring and they ordered all fans to leave because they were shutting down the company.
It looked like a giant angle, but that was in June 2013 and there has not been a show ran by CHIKARA since that time.
However, it was indeed an angle as the wrestlers began to work at other promotions since then and a group of wrestlers began to attack them on occasion to stop them from promoting the now dead promotion. This ended up exploding at Professional Wrestling Day this year when these masked wrestlers attacked during the main event.
What resulted was a fantastic angle where CHIKARA's stars stormed the ring and brawled. It all ended with one of CHIKARA's biggest stars - Icarus - showing off a flier with the return date of May 25. That is now advertised as the Season 14 Kickoff and tickets quickly sold out.
The new bus trip includes a ride to the show, with pickups scheduled for Queens in Elmhurst, NY and Manhattan in front of the Manhattan Center, before dropping fans off at the event. It also includes tickets to the CHIKARA Wrestling show, although there are a limited quantity of these tickets.
