Happy New Year CHIKARMY! 2011 was an extremely up and down year for me. It was filled with wins and losses, pain and triumph.
But 2011 ended with a bang for me! I scored a huge win over one of the best in the world - El Generico - as the world watched "High Noon," and I went on to
spend 3 weeks in Japan competing for Osaka Pro Wrestling doing what I love the most. It made me appreciate what
I have. What I've accomplished. But I won't lie to you. While I was there I got a little cocky. No one could beat me. I was in
there with some
of puroresu's finest and I didn't lose. I made it to the semi-finals of Osaka Pro's Tennozan Tournament before I suffered my first
loss. I got cocky and that will never happen again.
On January 28th in Easton, PA I lock up with Kobald. I won't walk into this match with a cocky attitude.
I'm more focused than
ever. I watched Koblad take our Grand Champion Eddie Kingston to the limit when we were in North Carolina. When I faced Eddie at
Chikarasaurus Rex this past July, I gave him everything I had, but the simple truth is, I didn't have Eddie's number. But after
watching your match Kobald, I realize you did. So trust me when I say I'm not looking past you. I'm walking into this like I've got a mountain to climb, like it's
the Tennozan tournament all over again...like I have something to prove. When you see me across the ring Kobald, you better know that I'm
coming at you 200%. 2012 is my year...and I'm gonna start it off with a bang. Ain't no doubt about it!
