With CHIKARA’s You Only Live Twice only days away, I was lucky enough to chat with “The Master of 1000 Holds” himself, Mike Quackenbush ahead of CHIKARA’s big comeback on May 25th. Over the course of the episode, we get into his commitment to storytelling, the relationship between CHIKARA and its fans, the necessity of accessibility and availability of wrestling content and… Scott Steiner?! You can stream the show on Libsyn, or press play on that handy little button. We’re now on iTunes, so if you want to go through and subscribe/review, that’d be lovely.[audio http://traffic.libsyn.com/nicedaypodcast/Mike_Quackenbush_mixdown.mp3]
Kicking off the festivities on Saturday is Luchabowl! Join the wrestlers of CHIKARA for a fun-filled day of bowling, as they show the world the positive power of professional wrestling, and try to raise enough money to help Make-A-Wish. If you can’t make it, you can still donate to the great cause.
Later in the day is CHIKARA’s Potluck Cookout Thing. Head down to the Palmer Center early with some grub, hang out with the CHIKARA roster and gorge on grilled goodness before the big show in the evening.
That big show of course, is the finals of Wrestling Is Fun’s Tag World Grand Prix. The card looks fantastic, and has major You Only Live Twice implications, so you’d be crazy to miss it. If you can’t make it for whatever reason (like, for example, you live on a stupid island on the other side of a stupid ocean) it will be live on iPPV courtesy of SmartMarkVideo.
If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket, you’ll be heading to the sold-out Expansion Pack, a day of fun-filled activities with the whole CHIKARA roster. Finally, it’s the one we’ve been waiting for. You Only Live Twice is live on iPPV via SmartMarkVideo, and there are still tickets available if you don’t have a stupid ocean between you and the thing you love. ———-
