So Senior Editor Jerome Cusson called upon CHIKARA specialist Justin Houston, former booker Adam Testa, and web admin Chris GST to discuss the situation, what may or may not be the future of CHIKARA, and we answer your emails and tweets.

Today (06/03) PWInsider posted this information:
CHIKARA the brand, as it stands, has run its last event, at least for some time. No whether that’s the end of the promotion or some really intricate angle and storyline remains to be seen. Josh Higham has a great write-up detailing all the background of what led into the show closing moments last night.
There was no official announcement as to what was going on in the locker room, although I am told small groups of wrestlers were spoken to over the course of the night. We were also told that the roster was asked to signed non-disclosure agreements before last night’s event. Given how secretive CHIKARA is usually with all their plans, I’m not surprised to hear that.
I do know that A number of CHIKARA performers have started reaching out to independent promoters looking for work to replace what were originally CHIKARA dates this summer.
