Why am I starting out an article named Wrestling Wednesday with a scene from Watchmen 12?
Because it has never been more apt in the wake of June 2nd and the pay-per-view that takes its name from that scene.
And like Rorschach, the wrestlers of Chikara did not do so, no matter how much they were asked to by Director of Fun Wink Vavasseur or his bosses at the Titor Conglomerate. And in turn, they paid the price.
It seems Chikara is no more. The promotion is dead, killed by its owners, for reasons still unknown. Was it that Wink’s chosen talents lost again and again? Was it that someone, whether it be Archibald Peck, Mike Quackenbush, Derek Sabato or the man behind No Private Army got too close to the truth about Titor Conglomerate?
I have no clue what the answer is, but this story is far from over. And just like Watchmen when all hope seems lost and everything seems to be buried in a web of lies, the truth still finds a way through.
