CHIKARA: The finals of Young Lions Cup V in Hellertown on June 24th!

   Our annual tradition of the Young Lions Cup returns for its fifth installment this year! The first two nights of tournament action will see 24 competitors whittled down until just two remain – and those wrestlers will meet in the main event of our Hellertown card on June 24th! In addition to the tournament finals, our June 24th event will feature tons of non-tournament action, including:


Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli vs. Cheech & Cloudy


Hallowicked & Jigsaw & Shane Storm


Arik Cannon & Larry Sweeney & Max Boyer


“Lightning” Mike Quackenbush, Eddie Kingston, F.I.S.T., UltraMantis Black, Ruckus, The Olsen Twins, “Marvelous” Mitch Ryder and a whole bunch more!

    The guidelines for entry into the Young Lions Cup are simple: To compete in the tournament, a wrestler must be 25 years of age, or younger, and can never have held any previous incarnations of the Cup (that automatically excludes Hallowicked, Larry Sweeney, Jigsaw, Shane Storm, Arik Cannon and Maxime Boyer.) Our Director of Fun, Leonard F. Chikarason is constantly adding more names to the fifth annual Young Lions Cup:

Amigo Suzuki (Toryumon)

Player Uno (IWS)

Chuck Taylor

Super Xtremo (BSE)

Ice Cream, Jr.

Ryan Cruz (F1rst Wrestling)

Soldier Ant

Cabana Man Dan (IWA:DS)

Lince Dorado

Chrisjen Hayme (FTW)

El Hijo del Ice Cream

Rex Sterling (NWA)

Tim Donst

Shayne Hawke (IWS)


Billy Roc (IPW)

Darin Corbin (F1rst Wrestling)


Rhett Titus (ROH)

…and re-debuting at the tournament will be Create-A-Wrestler.

     In addition to tournament matches, each of the first two nights will see additional, non-tournament bouts added to the cards.

    Advance tickets for the tournament are currently available at our website – both individual tickets and tickets for all three nights!
