Devastation Corporation to Hold Pizza Eating and Arm Wrestling (And Fist Fighting?) Contest at The Squared Circle

Chikara will return to Chicago's Logan Auditorium for The Sword of Destiny on Saturday, June 13. The show is sold out, sadly, which is not a surprise. Chicago may be Chikara's best market, or at least its second best outside of the greater Philadelphia area. However, if you can't get into the show, or if you're going to the show and you want to partake in SHENANIGANS afterwards, then the Devastation Corporation has the thing for you to attend.

The Squared Circle, the wrestling-themed pizzeria that may or may not still be owned by Lisa Marie "Tara/Victoria" Varon, will be playing host to the first ever Devastation Corporation Pizza-Eating/Arm-Wrestling/Fist-Fighting Contest right after the Chikara show is over. The current reigning and defending Campeonatos de Parejas/King of Trios have not specified any details as to what it will entail, but my guess is it will contain lots of pizza consumption and arm wrestling. I'm not sure fist fighting will play, but then again, would you say no to Max Smashmaster, Blaster McMassive, Flex Rumblecrunch, and Sidney Bakabella? I'd have to think long and hard about it and then say "Fuck it, I can always pay for repairs."

Honestly, if you're going to the Chikara show and you're at least CONSDIERING attending the pizza shindig afterwards, either you're really dedicated to fanboy/fangirling the tecnicos or you hate fun. Pizza, hosses, and pure, unbridled, aggro-intense horsing-around sounds like something everyone can enjoy of all ages. Well, at least the pizza part and WATCHING the horsing-around. I wouldn't recommend letting your child challenge any one of the DevCorp to an arm wrestling match. Suddenly, I wish I lived in Chicago now.
