While the world was focused on WrestleMania, a far more prestigious event was taking place: Krazy Krusher versus Captain Chaos for the Circle Pit Championship. Here, we have a rundown of the contestants, as well as exclusive video footage of their titanic battle.
As the United Kingdom opened up again following an extended period of lockdown, two warriors who had spent months chomping at the bit were finally able to engage in combat. In front of a very select audience in the open-air arena, Krazy Krusher and Captain Chaos entered the world-famous Circle Pit to compete for the right to be called the champion.
The Circle Pit needs no introduction, but for the uninitiated, let me tell you the rules: Falls can be achieved by pinfall, where you force your opponent’s shoulders to the ground for a count of three; submission, where your opponent says they can take no more punishment via either words or tapping the mat three times; and by ejecting your opponent from the Circle Pit arena, sumo-style, with both feet hitting the area outside the defined boundaries. The first person to achieve three falls over their opponent is declared the winner. There is no biting, no weapons, no eye-gouging, no hair-pulling and no low blows. Beyond that, anything goes.
Krazy Krusher enters the contest as the favourite. Years of training at the Mitsuru Karate Club under the tutelage of renowned sensei Mark Holding has left her with a mastery of martial arts. Her discipline, knowledge, and ability to remain calm under pressure gives her the advantage over many of her opponents. The longer a contest goes, the more it favours the Krazy Krusher; her mentality gives her the edge in the deep waters, when fatigue kicks in and the body becomes weak. She holds the size, weight and age advantages, and her years of competitive experience in a structured formats mean that, should she be bested, the disappointment of defeat will stay with her for a very long time.
However, you simply cannot write off Captain Chaos. While his entry into the world of sporting physicality is very recent, his devotion to learning and understanding the art of professional wrestling cannot be understated. His absorption of the skills of his heroes Jungle Boy, Rey Fenix and Lance Archer gives him a varied and unpredictable move-set, while his admiration for the perseverance and never-say-die attitude of Darby Allin has led to the creation of a warrior who can attack from every position and just does not know when to quit. His fighting technique may be less refined than his opponent, but his ability to drag the most disciplined competitor into the wildest of brawls is second-to-none, and has won him many wars from seemingly-impossible positions.
It is a contest that could go either way. Two warriors enter. Only one will be crowned the Circle Pit Champion. Find out who that is by watching the exclusive footage below.
