Breaking News

4/21/2011: Hello all! It’s your CHIKARA Director of Fun, here, Wink Vavasseur! I thought I’d pop in and give you all a quick post-KOT update. First of all, let me say how interesting it was to meet so many of you this past weekend. King of Trios 2011 was such a successful event, and much of the credit goes to you guys, the fans. Of course, I suppose, a lot of credit goes to the incredibly talented wrestlers, too. And, though I’m a very modest person, I’d be remiss to not expect a bit of the credit to go to me. So, credit all around! And a special note to everyone who had their picture taken with me: if I blinked in your photo, just remember that a blink is like two WINKs for the price of one! Ha! Also, please send a copy of your picture to me at I’ve got a wall of pictures in my office of me posing with celebrities, titans of industry, and world dignitaries. I’m setting aside a spot for the best KOT picture, right between a photo of me with Gary Trudeau (I inspired a “Doonesbury” character, a floating, talking lawn chair; that guy’s weird) and a photo of me with Lee Iacocca.
Alright, that’s all for now, gang! ...Oh, wait, I almost totally forgot about the reason I started writing this in the first place...the results of the voting that took place! Well, all the votes have been collected, tabulated and re-counted (no hanging chads, trust me!), and here are the results:
5 = Claudio Castagnoli
3 = Jigsaw
2 = Hallowicked
2 = Amasis
2 = Mike Quackenbush
2 = Fire Ant
2 = Eddie Kingston
2 = Sara Del Rey
2 = Icarus
2 = UltraMantis Black
2 = Brodie Lee
2 = Vin Gerard
1 = Scott Parker
1 = Shane Matthews
1 = Daizee Haze
1 = Sinn Bodhi
1 = Obariyon
1 = Kodama
1 = Dasher Hatfield
1 = Sugar Dunkerton
1 = Soldier Ant
1 = Ice Cream, Jr.
1 = El Hijo del Ice Cream

So, let me reveal my plan. What I’ve come up with gets a little complicated, so please bear with me. I’ve devised a tournament where the top twelve vote-getters will be divided up into two blocks of round robin-style match-ups. The tournament will begin on May 21st in Easton, PA. There are more details to follow, but I really need a few days off to rest after tabulating the votes and brainstorming.

Now, to all the wrestlers vying for the top spot, I offer up these words of encouragement, words of inspiration, words of poetry once sung by a legend:
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud
It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
It’s my life
Good luck to each and every one of you, and may the best competitor win! As always, send questions, comments, concerns and compliments to:

Remember, I read every e-mail!*

Women’s wrestling still exists in today’s mainstream shows, but what passes for female grappling these days is usually more about eye candy than athleticism. Recently, however, a new indie promotion has emerged to help remind fans what women’s wrestling is really all about.
With its first DVD release, ArenaChicks, Volume 1, ArenaChicks features some of the top talent in underground female wrestling. Filmed in conjunction with the Carolina Wrestling Federation Mid-Atlantic shows in Burlington, N.C., the seven matches included on the first ArenaChicks DVD are from different shows, but form one cohesive collection.
With ArenaChicks executive producer Amber O’Neal providing commentary alongside Amber Gertner (best known for her interview segments for Shimmer Women Athletes wrestling), this DVD includes talents such as Allison Danger, Sara Del Rey, Angel Orsini and others previously seen in Shimmer, Women Superstars Uncensored and other prominent indies. And while match-ups such as Del Rey vs. Danger and Orsini vs. Jessica Havok are impressively hard-hitting bouts, it’s the intergender tag match pitting O’Neal and Chiva Kid against Kellie Skater and Coach Gemini (aka CWF Mid-Atlantic’s Gemini Kid) that proves the ArenaChicks are just as tough as their male counterparts.
The main event also features teams of male and female combatants doing battle in The Dating Game Match, where the winners get to go on a date together. Sure, it’s silly, but the match is great and the actual date is included as a bonus feature. Another bonus match is an eight-woman tag match featuring the likes of O’Neal, Danger, Persephone, Becky Bayless (aka Total Nonstop Action’s Cookie) and Talia Madison (aka TNA’s Velvet Sky), to honor the late Sherri Martel.
ArenaChicks will also be appearing at the Cape Fear Tattoo and Arts Expo April 29-May 1, filming matches for their second DVD on April 30 with former WWE and TNA star Shelly Martinez as guest referee. And this weekend, Cookie will be making an ArenaChicks appearance as a guest bartender alongside O’Neal at Lucky’s Tavern in Jacksonville, N.C.

While I wait

For 4 hours at the Cleveland airport I figured I could be productive. So here I am, let me communicate first how dumb this delay is considering the flight is only 30 min! It's a situation like this that makes me happy I pack all my own food. I'll just keep my fingers crossed my chicken will still be good tomorrow... if I should fall violently ill we all will know the reason.

Yesterday when WE took center stage I had just about zero time to process everything. It wasn't until this morning that I could look back and really reflect on the events. First I am so blessed an honored that ROH gave (and will again today give) the fans women's WRESTLING! I was really proud of the effort Serena and I gave and even though we lost I think we won.

Onto the Kings.... What a year! A full year as ROH tag champs, I am so proud of them. What an exciting match with just goes to show everything is done for a reason. When other companies think tag wrestling is dead we get to go out and shut them up!

This past month of wrestling has really inspired, motivated and brought my passion back so thank you to everyone involved!
