Post-match, Ophidian steals the Eye of Tyr from the wheelchair-bound UltraMantis Black. He rises from his chair, free from the curse of Nazmaldun, saying he remembers everything and chases the defeated Hallowicked from the ring. Is Mantis back???


After a “one more match” chant, Drew Gulak is out on the mic to say goodbye to the Chikarmy. He says Quack asked him for a list of people he'd like to have a match with on his way out. His first choice, brother Rory Gulak couldn't make the show but his 2nd pick....


Encore Match: Drew Gulak vs MIKE QUACKENBUSH! Crowd popped HUGE for Quack since this was only his 2nd live match since the Flood storyline a few years ago. They go 20 min before Gulak taps out Quack with a Dragon Sleeper. Crowd gives a standing ovation and “Thank You Both”. Gulak thanks the crowd for the memories and thanks Quack for the match. Quack says he's excited that what everyone in Chikara has known about Drew Gulak for years will soon be discovered by the rest of the world.

Chikara streamed the encore on their Facebook and can be found here:

The rest of the card will certainly make its way to their Chikaratopia On-Demand service in the next few months:

That's it for Chikara Season 16. Looks like a pretty exciting show and I look forward to seeing the full release! Until next time!
