King of Trios


King of Trios

King of Trios is a three-night tournament promoted by the Chikara wrestling promotion. The tournament is a different take on the Tag World Grand Prix event that the company is known for annually promoting; in King of Trios, instead of tag teams, there are trios that will compete in six-man tag team matches to see which of them will advance.

All in all, sixteen trios competed in the tournament, making for a total of forty-eight competitors. The tournament marked the 2007 season premiere of the promotion. The three nights of the 2007 tournament took place on February 16, 2007 in Hellertown, Pennsylvania, February 17 in Barnesville, Pennsylvania, and February 18 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[1][2][3] Nobutaka Moribe was originally scheduled to be a part of Team DDT, but had to be replaced by MASAMUNE, after getting stuck in traffic.[1]

The 2009 King of Trios tournament took place over March 27, 28, and 29 at The Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[8][9][10] This tournament had 16 teams due to the financial troubles of last year (down from the 28 of last year). The Cold Front was originally scheduled to comprise Al Snow, Iceberg and Glacier, but Iceberg couldn't make it to the show and was replaced by a random draw.[11]

The 2010 King of Trios tournament took place April 23, 24, and 25 at The Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[7] Like the previous year, 16 teams entered the tournament. The team of Aeroform and Johnny Gargano earned the final spot in the tournament by winning Absolute Intense Wrestling's 16-team Jack of All Trios tournament, held on April 9 and 10.[12] Team Delicioso was originally scheduled to consist of Cassandro, El Hijo del Ice Cream and Ice Cream, Jr., but Cassandro was forced to withdraw from the tournament, after breaking his leg at Ring of Honor's The Big Bang! pay-per-view on April 3. He announced on a blog on Chikara's official website that he had hand-picked his replacement as opposed to letting it be decided by a random draw.[13] On April 9 Curry Man was revealed as the replacement.[14] Originally Team Mexico (Jorge "Skayde" Rivera, Turbo and Valiente) was scheduled to enter the tournament, but on April 22 the company announced that both Valiente and Turbo were off the event and that as a result they were severing all ties with Rivera, who was in charge of bringing the two to the event and who reportedly tried to hold the company up for more money, despite failing to deliver Valiente and Turbo, who had already taken bookings elsewhere for the weekend.[15] Their replacement trio, who ended up being the team of The Osirian Portal (Amasis and Ophidian) and Sara Del Rey, was decided at the event by a random draw.[16]

The tournament was dedicated to the memory of Chikara Wrestle Factory graduate Alex Whybrow, better known as Larry Sweeney, who died on April 11, 2011. The whole tournament was released on DVD by Smart Mark Video on April 18, less than 24 hours after its conclusion.[19]
