Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am your host, the Baumeister. It’s Theme Thursday, where I take one a particular theme of my choosing and present it to you. It could be based off a promotion, or a match type, or a gimmick group. There’ll be my thoughts on the theme, as well as video clips that I’ve enjoyed.
This week’s theme: CHIKARA.
Now, some of your might, or might not be aware, but I am a giant CHIKARA guy. Sure, the wallet has been a little tight and I haven’t been able to buy their product since their hiatus, but I enjoy following along with their product through YouTube, Twitter and their ProBoards site, CHIKARA101. The characters are colorful, the in-ring action is great, but, above everything else, it is entertaining. Where else can you find ants, a mantis, a pumpkin and his nightmare, other sport athletes, and the “Worst in the World”.
As with a lot of independent promotions, CHIKARA has had several of WWE’s current stars come through their ring ropes. From long term performers like Luke Harper and Cesaro, long term guests like Sami Zayn, and temporary guests like Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens. This promotion is family friendly and a lot of fun to watch. So, enjoy below some of the more entertaining clips from CHIKARA.
So, what did you think of this week’s theme? Have any themes you’d like to see featured here? Let me know in the comments. Until next time, I am the Baumeister.
