CHIKARA Shutting Down?, Sami Callihan's Last CZW Match, Big O, Tough Enough Alum Face Off

- It looks like the rumors of CHIKARA's demise are true. The independent wrestling promotion, which was founded in 2002 by Mike Quackenbush and Reckless Youth, has cancelled all of their upcoming shows. Their iPPV last Saturday in Philadelphia appears to have been their last.

- A.J. Kirsch, Eric Watts and Martin Casaus - who were all contestants on the last season of Tough Enough - will compete in a Tri-Force Challenge match at Vendetta Pro Wrestling's Summer Sizzle Tour 2013 at the Colony Park Community Center in Atascadero, CA this Saturday night at 7pm. You can get more information or purchase tickets at vendettaprowrestling.com.

- Also this Saturday, ACW returns to Steven's Fire Hall at 91 Stevens Road in Stevens, PA, for FALL-OUT 2013. ACW Heavyweight Champion Ox Hogg will face Big Vito, while The Big O will make his ACW return. You can purchase tickets here.

- CZW 'Tournament of Death' returns to the Ultraviolent Underground at 179 Ebenezer Church RD in Townsend, DE this Saturday. Doors open at 1 pm for a 2pm bell time. The event will air on iPPV on a tape delay within 24 hours of the event. MASADA, Ron Mathis, Danny Havoc and CZW owner DJ Hyde are amongst the names competing in round one of the tournament this Saturday. In non-tournament action, Sami Callihan will have his last CZW match against an opponent of his choosing. OI4K's Jake & Dave Crist, Drew Gulak and Tommy Dreamer will also be on-hand. You can get more information or purchase tickets at CZWrestling.com.
