These two have been some of the finer newbies to CHIKARA in 2014 and continue to put on solid matches. ***

Much like Remington presented Coronado with a fruit basket last month, Coronado does the same. However, this basket is solely filled with bananas, likely due to the fact that Coronado is Wrestling is Fun!’s top banana. When Remington goes to accept the basket, Coronado nails him in the head with it! He leaves and gives Remington a mocking finger fun. Remington rips a banana in half before angrily leaving.
