I figure there's gotta be someone other than me who follows some of these. Not enough to have their own thread, but maybe we can get some interest drummed up.

I'll start. I've really been getting into CHIKARA. It's a boatload of fun, a lot of guys work both Chikara shows and ROH shows, and it has a nice unique lucha based style to it.

And it has Quackenbush. You can not go wrong with that.

This clip is too fucking funny to pass up. Another reason why indy wrestling rules.

From Chikara, Olsen Twins v. North Star Express

I gotta say that was funny as hell...BUT, as an indy wrestler I will say this, it makes us look really bad.

How do you figure?
Its a mockery. Entertaining, and funny? Yes, absolutly. But that stuff shouldnt be done in front of a crowd. During some practice sessions me and some others will throw some dumb slow motion stuff in, but it shouldnt be done in front of a live audience (just my opinion..)

I have been watching a ton of Chikara and PWG on youtube lately. It is so anti-wwe it is great.

I'm with you.

So much time, energy and work goes into wrestlers doing what they can to get us to suspend out disbelief. We know what's going on in there. So when we get caught up in a match, and forget that it's a performance, it's a testament to the workers in the ring.

Stuff like this, while funny, just serves to remind us that we're watching a "performance", and the guys following them now have to work that much harder to get us to "suspend our disbelief".

I actually thought it was very funny and refreshing. I can't even watch WWE anymore. Been months since I have watched RAW.

Mike Spillane (M. Quackenbush) is from my town. He's so ridiculously creative it's... ridiculous.

Worker Ant is a perennial Ant of the Year candidate.

Hahaha, Kingston on commentary makes this even better.

Seems like a show I would enjoy on DVD. Let the ebay search begin.

Got to like anyone who uses Nintendo as his gimmick. I give to you Player Uno.

Delirious calling out the spot for the crowd and his opponent. Very funny.
