CHIKARA Pro is shutting down following several allegations

In the wake of the #SpeakingOut movement, CHIKARA Pro will be shutting down. An announcement is expected soon by the owner of the promotion, Mike Quackenbush.

CHIKARA, founded in 2002, has come under fire in recent days after allegations came to light regarding abuse towards female trainees and staffers.

Several wrestlers have already given their notice to the company after learning about the allegations. You can read the tweets below that led to the company closing down.

Good start.

Oh hey I forgot to mention in my #SpeakingOut post that during my ordeal with Kobald, I was informed by multiple people that @MikeQuackenbush would refer to me as "The Ratiri". Guess he would know from rats…

This was also while I was doing a podcast for Chikara. https://t.co/hw1f4fSIX3

A friend reached out to me after I posted my experience. They would like to remain anonymous for the time being so I'm posting on their behalf. #SpeakingOut pic.twitter.com/5doIHv9tWV

Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice, shame on me.

After I posted that Quack called me The Ratiri, he sent me a long apology, saying it didn't sound like him. I thanked him for it to be polite.

I've since reconsidered. #FuckChikara #SpeakingOut pic.twitter.com/aUo9p2ZbzD
