Pro Wrestling International Set is Coming Featuring Trevor Lee!

Coming at the end of the summer is a major new independent wrestling set from Filsinger Games.  This set will feature game cards from 3 of the hottest promotions in the Southeastern United States all under the Pro Wrestling International banner.  The promotions represented in this set are CWF Mid-Atlantic, Premiere Wrestling Xperience and NOVA Pro Wrestling.  Each promotion will have multiple cards in this unique game pack.

CWF Mid-Atlantic was represented in the National Pro Wrestling Day pack in 2013 with then Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal.  Now to kick off the PWI Game Set is the current CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee!  In recent years Trevor Lee has made it big on the national wrestling stage, but he got his start at home in the Carolinas.  Known as the Carolina Caveman for his wild hair and beard, Lee can pull off some dazzling moves in the ring, but often is known to finish off his opponents with a good old fashioned Small Package.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we announce wrestlers from PWX and NOVA Pro, along with more from CWF Mid-Atlantic.  It’ll be an awesome set to add to your collection! For more on Pro Wrestling International and all its member promotions visit pwipro.com

Lance Steel Fills Out the Chikara Aniversario Pack

The last wrestler to join the CHIKARA Aniversario pack is the 16th century knight from Camelot himself…Lance Steel! Lance is literally one of the most colorful characters from CHIKARA’s early days. He has quite the interesting history in CHIKARA, which includes forming a tag team with a younger version of himself. That is before beating him and banishing the alternate version of himself to the past.

Promoters will have fun recreating some of Lance Steel’s most famous encounters, including the No Time Limit, Falls Count Anywhere match he had against Darkness Crabtree that lasted nearly 24 hours! Of course the arch enemy of a knight is bound to be a dragon, so who can resist booking Lance Steel vs. Dragon Dragon?

Lance Steel joins Robbie Ellis, Solo Darling, Travis Huckabee, Darkness Crabtree, Private Eye, and Crummels and Defarge, in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. \The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will begin mailing this week, and is available to preorder right now!

Chikara Owner Robbie Ellis is a Part of Chikara Aniversario

Back in 2014 when CHIKARA was in the midst of a year long shut down at the hands of the Titor Conglomerate, the promotion was put up for sale. It was at that time that art collector and fomer CHIKARA competitor Robbie Ellis purchased the promotion and brought it back to the Chikarmy! While Ellis has handed over the day to day operations to Director of Fun, Mike Quackenbush, he remains the promotion’s owner to this day.

The story of Robbie Ellis is a unique one, as detailed in the movie Canvasman: The Robbie Ellis Story. He lived a double life, as both a renowned art dealer and a professional wrestler, which he did well into his 60’s. In CHIKARA he often teamed with the immortal Larry Sweeney. Perhaps these two can team once again in your fed!

We are proud to include Robbie Ellis, along with Solo Darling, Travis Huckabee, Darkness Crabtree, Private Eye and Crummels and Defarge, along with one more wrestler from CHIKARA’s past in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st, and is available to preorder right now!

The Rumblebees Look to Sting the Competition in Chikara

The CHIKARA tag team division has always been a strong part of the promotion with classic teams like the Colony, Osirian Portal, and FIST dominating for years. Now a new crop of tag teams has emerged in CHIKARA and the future looks bright. While many of the headlines have been stolen (literally at times) by Crummels and Defarge, one new unexpected tag team may end up being the best of all and that team is the Rumblebees!

Travis Huckabee has been a long-time trainee at the CHIKARA Wrestlefactory, specializing in technical wrestling skills under the likes of Drew Gulak. In 2016 he served as a referee who often made some questionable calls but always stuck up for what he thought was right and refused to be bullied. This attitude showed at the Season 16 finale, when he stood up for Solo Darling after her upset win over the massive Max Smashmaster.

That incident sparked a friendship between Darling and Huckabee, and Travis decided to turn in his referee shirt for a pair of wrestling trunks and join the CHIKARA roster as an active wrestler. So far the duo has had its moments as a tag team, but have not ended up on the winning side of many tag matches just yet. However, they may get their chance to become CHIKARA Campeones de Parejas, since Solo Darling recently won the 3rd Infinite Gauntlet and a Golden Opportunity. That Golden Opportunity allows her to skip the process of collecting 3 points and automatically challenge any champion of her choosing. If they get the chance can they unseat the seemingly unbeatable Crummels and Defarge?

Solo Darling and Travis Huckabee join Darkness Crabtree, Private Eye and Crummels and Defarge, along with 2 more wrestler’s from CHIKARA’s past in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st!

Old School Favorite Private Eye Joins the Chikara Aniversario Roster

The early days of CHIKARA were marked by some very unique characters. One of the more bizarre characters was CHIKARA’s resident detective, Private Eye. His most distinguishing characteristic was of course the giant eyeball he has for a head. If you could say one thing about Private Eye, it’s that he had no problem seeing the action in the ring!

Private Eye joins Darkness Crabtree and Crummels and Defarge, along with 4 other wrestler in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA. The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will be at the CHIKARA Aniversario School Reunion Event on May 27th in Hellertown, PA, and will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st!

Crummels and Defarge Continue Their Roll in the Chikara Aniversario Pack

The next duo to be included in the CHIKARA Aniversario 8-pack is the current Campeones de Parajes, Cornelius Crummels and Sonny Defarge. These “legitimate businessmen” came onto the scene in season 16 and quickly began to rack up points with their unique tandem offense. Their only loss to date came during the CHIKARA tag team gauntlet during King of Trios weekend. Their run continued in late season 16 and through secret season 17, until the finale of season 17 where they won a 3-way match to capture the vacant titles.

Crummels and Defarge will bring their wacky maneuvers to the CHIKARA game including the Super Monkey Flip and their finisher GREAT EXPECTATIONS. They will join Darkness Crabtree and 5 other wrestler in this unique 8-pack that showcases the great past and awesome future of CHIKARA.

The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will be at the CHIKARA Aniversario School Reunion Event on May 27th in Hellertown, PA, and will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st!

Darkness Crabtree Stumbles into the CHIKARA Aniversario Pack

The CHIKARA Aniversario 8-pack will combine some of the classic names from CHIKARA’s past with some of the names that will continue to headline the promotion in the future. The first name is one of the most requested CHIKARA classic characters— Darkness Crabtree!

Originally known as Lester Crabtree and later donning the name Darkness when turning rudo, Crabtree is Chikara’s resident Octogenarian grappler. He moves to and around the ring very slowly, as a man of his age would be expected to. However, look out if he is able to get a hold of his special pills, which are known to give him a bust of energy…if only for a short period of time. While Darkness Crabtree is CHIKARA’s cranky curmudgeon, he was also beloved by fans for his antics.

The CHIKARA Aniversario pack will be at the CHIKARA Aniversario School Reunion Event on May 27th in Hellertown, PA, and will begin mailing everywhere on May 31st!
