The World Is Not Enough: A Chikara Road Diary

As some of you may remember, I love Chikara and will tell anyone about it whether they’re willing to listen or not. Last week I somehow managed to sneak a Chikara show into my boyfriend’s vacation plans, so if you would like to remain spoiler-free for the Boston (and a little bit of the New York) show, I suggest you bookmark this for when you get caught up, or whenever people get tired of talking about The Rock’s fanny pack.

As always, a friendly reminder to follow With Spandex here, the UPROXX mothership here, and me here if you’re so inclined. Show photos were provided by the incomparable Zia Hiltey, who is sincerely one of the nicest, most talented people you could hope to know. We like comments (in theory), and we definitely love when you share stuff around. It keeps With Spandex as a real thing, and I’d like it to stay that way for as long as possible.
