  • The whole storyline involving the counter to the CHIKARA Special. Everything with the disappearance of Chris Hero, Shane Storm turning heel and becoming STIGMA, the Eye of Tyr storyline leading to Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes and everything that followed could only have worked in a promotion with such an emphasis on continuity and intricate storylines such as CHIKARA. (ECW was really good with continuity too, but you wouldn't need a special counter to a hold when you could just hit the other guy with a chair.) It's a credit to Quackenbush's creativity and attention to detail that something that was introduced in 2007 could have ramifications years down the line, as opposed to how, say, WWE or WCW or other promotions tend to either blow off feuds and move everyone involved onto something else or simply forget about something and it might never be referenced again. Then there's the way that Ares turned out to be the mastermind behind the BDK, despite the fact that he hadn't been on a CHIKARA show since 2006.

  • The Team CHIKARAnote -BDKnote  Torneo Cibernetico at CHIKARA The Dark Ciberknetico, October 23, 2010. Combines brilliant action with tons of history into a brisk 35 minutes and change.
