All 8 participants locked in for CHIKARA's April 22 "Rey de Voladores!"

CHIKARA: All eight participants locked in for "Rey de Voladores" on April 22!

We're gathering together 8 great high-flyers from around the circuit and staging a mini-tournament just for aerialists. Only one man can win "Rey de Voladores," and as of today, the eight combatants are all confirmed. From the United Kingdom comes the man that "gravity forgot," the singular Pac! CHIKARA's own Jigsaw, as well as Retail Dragon will take part in the tournament, and following his impressive showing in March, Leonard Chikarason saw fit to add Ricochet, a Kentucky native, to the mix. Ricochet's frequent rival, Chuck Taylor, went to a draw with Ruckus on our March 23rd show, and now both men have been entered into the tournament. From IWA: East Coast comes Zac Vincent, who competed in the Zero G tournament, and will make his CHIKARA debut on April 22. Last but not least, Juarez, Mexico's own Lince Dorado returns to CHIKARA in the month of April for our event at the ECW Arena. In addition to which, non-tourney bouts will fill up the card:

Shane Storm vs. Larry Sweeney!

Claudio Castagnoli takes on his former partner Chris Hero!

UltraMantis Black & Hydra & Crossbones
Andy Sumner & Drew Gulak & Tim Donst!

Fire Ant faces off with Lance Steel!

Hallowicked locks up with Eddie Kingston!

Soldier Ant & Worker Ant meet the BLK OUT's Joker & Sabian!

Gran Akuma & Icarus [Campeones]
Cheech & Cloudy [Retadores]

Our pals over at Smart Mark Video have outdone themselves this time. Not only have they released a double-disc special edition "Aniversario" set featuring early CHIKARA bouts from years past, but they've also edited and cranked out all the action from all 3 nights of February's "King of Trios" tournament! If you missed us live - or if you can't wait to relive the action in the privacy of your own dorm room - head over to right now and invest in a whole bunch of CHIKARA goodness! You'll be glad you did.
