1) Ready to Challenge the Champ!
-Archibald Peck has amassed an impressive list of decisive wins in Season 12, and now he'll get his shot at the Grand Championship. Director of Fun, Wink Vavasseur declared that the Grand Championship will be defended at every CHIKARA event and "The Leader of the Band" will meet whatever champion emerges from CHIKARA's tour through the deep south.
2) First Time Ever!
-Chicago's favorite son Colt Cabana makes his return to a CHIKARA ring in his hometown! The technical master and ring veteran will face an opponent that he has never matched up against: Gen-1 original Icarus. Icarus was recently granted a shot at the Grand Championship for our Aniversario iPPV, and can pick up enormous momentum heading into his title shot with a win over Colt. Or will Cabana derail Icarus before one of the biggest matches in his career?
