Nothing in life is free. If you want something you have to earn it. With hard work, respect and integrity. One cannot
simply walk into Asgard and claim to be a god because he found passage through some back door along the Bifrost bridge. Everyone
knows that to even cross Asbru you must first pass Heimdall. Gran Akuma thinks he's the exception to the rule though.
He believes that by simply hopping a guard rail, jumping into a ring and accepting challenges while kicking sand bags in his secret
lair that he can saunter into CHIKARA and be back on the roster. Well I say nay good sir, you shall not pass so easily.
Gran Akuma was cast out of the CHIKARA locker room over a year ago. I thought by pedigreeing his face off, I sent a very clear
message: "your services are no longer needed." Then in November, after every match I'd win, I'd turn around to see
Gran Akuma. So what, now he's back from outer space, brooding around the locker room with that sad look upon his face. I'm
willing to bet you thought I'd crumble, that I'd just lay down and die, but oh not I. I earned my spot on the CHIKARA roster.
If you want back in Akuma, you must earn your way back. You can't just step into the ring with me 'cause you think you can wrestle.
So I've decided, since I'm such a gracious fellow, to give you a shot to earn your way up to being able to step into the
ring with me again. You want back into CHIKARA fulltime? You want to get your hands on me? Prove it. Overcome what I have in
store for you. Let's institute a trial series, Mr. Vavasseur. Do or die, I say. If you can overcome the matches I align,
you'll have earned your way back to CHIKARA and perhaps a rematch with the world's greatest - moi.
