Chikara King of Trios 2008

CHIKARA: The 27th trio revealed as King of Trios 2008 draws near!

They are coming from across the globe: Japan, Mexico, Canada, Egypt and Europe. They are coming from all over the United States: From Pennsylvania to Hawaii, from Minnesota to Louisiana. And when you put 84 wrestlers under one roof - in one massive tournament - you end up with the biggest tournament in pro-wrestling history. Let that sink in for a moment. Go ahead. I'll wait.

Today, one of two remaining trios is revealed. Our pals at Dragon Gate are sending a very talented up-and-coming member of the DG NEX stable - that wily Japanese hip-hopper m.c. KZ. We looked around our locker room, and truth be told, we're fresh out of Japanese hip-hoppers. So, we're going to team him up with fan-favorite duo Cheech & Cloudy, since they don't currently have a partner for the tournament, and frankly, it wouldn't be a party without them.

So now the mighty King of Trios 2008 will feature these 27 teams:

-Team WWF (Demolition Ax & Demolition Smash & One Man Gang)
-Team WTF? (Cheech & Cloudy & Dragon Gate's m.c. KZ)
-The Colony (Fire Ant, Soldier Ant & Worker Ant)
