CHIKARA Makes Huge Announcment on the 2009 Edition of King of Trios

Melissa Earnest

CHIKARA’s King of Trios – The Biggest Wrestling Tournament of the Year!

It’s made up of 48 professional wrestlers from around the world, grouped into 16 trios…and if you’re into wrestling tournaments, they don’t come any larger, any more earth-shaking than CHIKARA’s annual King of Trios! For 2009, we’ve already announced dates in January and February, and today, we’re putting March on the list in a big way. The weekend of March 27th, 28th and 29th marks the return of the bloated beast the world has come to regard as King of Trios, and you can expect to see CHIKARA’s finest saddling up beside a bevy of wrestling’s finest (and oddest) stars!

Last year’s King of Trios marked the CHIKARA debuts of the One Man Gang, Glacier, Demolition Ax and Demolition Smash, along with representatives from Dragon Gate, DDT, Kaientai Dojo, El Dorado, and a handful of other international organizations! With a smorgasbord of wrestling talent from around the globe converging on the former ECW Arena last year, we were able to smash, and then re-smash all CHIKARA attendance records, and we’re out to do it again with King of Trios 2009!

Obviously, somethings have changed since 2008. For starters, the tournament will contain 16 trios, all of which will compete on Night 1 of the tournament. Tickets, broken into 3 tiers, will go on sale at our season premiere, called “Revelation X”, on January 25th. The tickets will be broken up into Front Row seating ($20 each,) General Admission ($15 each,) and Kids 12 & Under ($5 each.)

New York City fans will want to take advantage of a fan-organized bus trip to see “Revelation X” in Philadelphia, so they can witness the season kickoff, and be first to purchase King of Trios 2009 tickets. Drop by the forum and read up on details in the ATTN: NYC BUS TRIP thread for the skinny on this one, or e-mail the trip organizer at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
