Cool, I didn't know wrestlers spoke whale, the WWF thing from the 80s makes more sense now.

I don't get it, but I like it.

Man, I'd love for, maybe, Chikara to do a tour of Japan, but that would probably be missing the point.

Was this the same group of wrestlers that, like - out of the blue, starting dancing the robot, and the worm and all that? I loved that one.

I still think my favorite was when Chuck Taylor Attempted To Take Out Soldier Ant With A Grenade.

Tonight, at the first night of King of Trios (CHIKARA's wrestlemania where 3-man teams wrestle tournament style to see who's the best) Team Extreme (ECW/ hardcore legends 2 Cold Scorpio, Tommy Dreamer and Jerry Lynn) and Team WWF (1-2-3 Kid nee X-Pac, Tatanka and Aldo Montoya) battled in the main event. Following Tommy Dreamer calling out Aldo Montoya for using "Justin Credible moves" (Justin Credible is Aldo's alter ego), what started as a "living in the past" joke turned into the entire ring-- wrestlers, referees, camera crew and all) slowing down, "glitching" and then freezing in place, stock still... then Tommy Dreamer held up a remote, grinned real wide, and then punched someone out, getting in a free shot before all was back to normal.

I seriously love CHIKARA so much. Lots of colorful chracters, fan interaction, comedy and technical wrestling, just... yes. Awesome.

If any MeFites are attending Night 2, I'll be there again. Look for the chubby white dude

Hah, chubby white dude could fit a lot. What I meant was chubby with dude in this shirt.

Kayfabe is dead.

Getting the crowd to play along with the belief that Darin Corbin possesses the ability to control time itself is, I think, proof that kayfabe is stronger than ever.

A mention of CZW means automatic linking of this video.

Yes, but can even the power of time control stand against the only real dragon in wrestling? A DRAGON DRAGON?

Time control would probably make Dragon Dragon more dangerous, because the slow movement would help keep his head from falling off.
