Kids usually are not impressed with complex wrestling and that's why most kids tend to lean toward WWE. Its interesting how Chikara tries to appeal to kids, yet most of its fans are adults who appreciate great wrestling.
You know what makes Chikara appeal to the kids: the actual characters, and even moreso the masks. Chikara comes off like a comic book of sorts, and the understanding of the good guys and bad guys based on how they present themselves in the ring. Like the colony or the portal: ants, a pharohe, and a snake.. it just works!
Its kind of refreshing when there's a kid sitting next to you is asking you what kind of moves does "x" wrestler have, or just booing their hearts out because they can identify wrestlers that they don't like for whatever reason.
