The Show comes to Chikara

In a move that's been a long time coming, The Carnies have been announced for King of Trios. The team consisting of Nick Iggy, Kerry Awful, and Tripp Cassidy, has been tearing up the Southern indies for the last few years, first as an Iggy/Awful tag team effort, later adding the School of Roc graduate to round out the team. As a tag team, Iggy and Awful took on Trent Seven and Tyler Bate in the summer of 2016. Although this tournament will be their first Trios, they are not strangers to six-man tag tournaments.

They competed in both Scenic City Trios tournaments, losing to the eventual winners in 2017 and winning the whole damn thing in 2018. They also were finalists in the Bar Wrestling "Three's Company" Tournament. None of the three members are strangers to Chikara either. Iggy and Awful appeared in October 2017, where they lost to Cornelius Crummels and Sonny DeFarge, and Cassidy appeared for the the main company and also Chikara satellite promotions during its "closure" period, most notably Wrestling Is Fun!, Wrestling Is Cool, and Wrestling Is Intense. They will bring eccentricity to the gathering.

The Carnies are the third team announced for the biggest tournament in wrestling. The other two are Team Pump (Scott Steiner, Petey Williams, Jordynne Grace) and the Ancient Order of Nations (Adam Hoffman, Mick Moretti, Jack Bonza). The tournament will happen at the Goodwill Beneficial Association in Reading, PA October 4-6. Tickets are on sale now at the Chikara website.
