This upcoming weekend, CHIKARA will present their third and fourth final shows of the season, “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic World” and “Cibernetico Increible”. One more match is set to be announced for “Cibernetico Increible” in Philadelphia, but other than that, both shows’ cards have been pretty much finalized. As far as I am concerned, both events look like they are definitely going to be something special and will most likely be worthy of DVD purchases.In a backstage promo on the “Hiding in Plain Sight” DVD, Sal Rinauro of all people made an appearance and laid out a challenge to “Lightning” Mike Quackenbush for his NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship. National Wrestling Alliance heard Rinauro’s words and have made the match official for “An Optimistic View of a Pessimistic View” in Easton. Quack has hung onto the NWA belt for nearly three years now, but has not made a title defense since December of 2008. Will Rinauro be able to take advantage of Quackenbush’s recent back injury and capture the prestigious NWA belt or will “LMQ” manage to rack up his tenth defense?
Truth be known, the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Championship has gone pretty much unnoticed in the realm of the NWA. And as the writer mentions, Quackenbush hasn’t defended his championship in nearly a year. Quackenbush has focused most of his attention to the Dragon Gate USA promotion, in addition to his Chikara promotion. And over coming his injured back, Quack will be facing Sal Rinauro. Rinauro who has been competing in NWA Anarchy, FIP, and even ROH. Its great to see the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Championship to being defended again
