In 2002 in the aftermath of ECW and WCW’s demise, Mike Quackenbush felt Wrestling wasn’t for him anymore.

Disenchanted from the current product he thought, if I can’t find wrestling I like, I will make my own.

It was on that point that Chikara was born- a promotion used to push wrestling to its comic book and cartoon limits.

The promotion has given exposure to some of the best wrestlers in the world, as well as help train them too.

NXT UK‘s Kassius Ohno & Raw’s Cesaro are just a couple of those names who are most recognisable.

Mike’s skill as a trainer has saw him being asked to guest train at the WWE Performance Center. Most recently he helped train Alexa Bliss after her injury in late 2018.

Mike is also more than just a trainer and promoter. The man of 1000 holds is regarded by many as one of the most skilled technicians of his regeneration. His career to date has seen him square off with some of the very best, including Japanese legends Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger and Ultimo Dragon.

Now a 25 year veteran, Mike has some unbelievable stories to tell of a rollercoaster time in the wrestling business.

Here, he talks to Ross his love for wrestling, the early days of Chikara and the Wrestle Factory, almost having to retire in 2013, his love of comic books and so much more
