Chikara: While the Dawn is Breaking DVD Review

Jerome Cusson

Jerome Cusson has been a professional wrestling fan since late 1994. Having started out as a fan of WWF, he eventually expanded his horizons into WCW and ECW. After the unfortunate deaths of these two companies, Jerome's interest in wrestling nearly came to an end before he discovered independent wrestling. Let the love/hate relationship with wrestling continue.

  1. I really like this review format. The move by move breakdowns of a match sort of ruin the experience of buying a DVD for me.

    Huh. That’s kind of weird that you say Kobald has had so many singles matches, when Jakob has had over twice as many. I love Jakob as much as the next person, but as far as in-ring work, I would still give Kobald the edge. Both wrestlers have very specific roles to play, and at times that can completely belie their skill set.

    Also, it’s amazing that you’re such a good judge of what would be a better use of their time, considering the long-term plan in place, and that everything during this season, though it seems innocuous, will have greater consequences later on. A lot of the fun in Chikara is the getting there, not criticizing without knowing the end game. It’s not like WWE where things are changed on the fly. If things are muddled and confusing for you, it’s probably best to stick with it instead of complaining and pointing out what should be done. For people unfamiliar with what Chikara tries to accomplish, it can be terribly discouraging.

    I hope you go back to your old review format as that was a fun one to follow along with. These are fun to read after but just not the same.
