I woke up in a great mood this morning. Although my ribs feel like they have been trampled on by a heard of
stampeding elephants, I can’t help but fondly look back upon the Cibernetico match. It was an experience, to say
the least. The best part of that match for me personally had to be the fact the for the second time in the month
of November, 3.0 defeated the current Campeones de Parejas, the Young Bucks. I also choose to forget the fact that I got crushed
and eliminated by Nick Jackson’s 450 splash only minutes later, but he also tapped out to Big Magic’s Boston
Crab...anyways, I’m getting carried away here.
I sat down and read Mr. Gargano’s blog and one would think that his words would have put a damper on my day.
It didn’t. If I’m being honest, I thought it was an enjoyable read. I actually found the comparison of the movie
“Catfish” to Shane and myself to be pretty clever. It made me smile like this :)
You cast a lot of stones in your blog Johnny, and the worst part of it is, you’re not completely wrong. Let me show you:
- 3.0 didn't beat the ACTUAL champions the night they "reached the promise land." - TRUE
- Chuck wasn't even in the deciding fall! That was Icarus. – TRUE
- First round at King of Trios? Gone. – TRUE
- How long was your reign again? You failed in your first defense! - TRUE
That’s a real laundry list of truth isn’t it? Come to think of it, maybe every single thing you said was true.
Maybe 3.0 does have everyone fooled. Maybe we are nothing but a facade. Maybe we are the biggest choke artists
in CHIKARA history. Maybe we are nothing more than that “drop dead gorgeous model on Facebook who lives 600 miles
I keep reading what you wrote and the more I read it, the more it makes sense. You’re a beacon of truth, Mr. Gargano.
How can I argue any of your logic? I mean, you even went so far as to ask and answer your own question! :-o
“What happens when a 100% healthy, 100% adorable Johnny Gargano returns to the fold? ? Easy! 3.0 doesn't
stand a chance against us.”
If I go ahead and borrow from your powerful arsenal of math and emoticons, it’s easy to see that you’re right.
It’s an obvious, foregone conclusion that there’s a higher chance of there being an NHL season than there is of
3.0 defeating F.I.S.T. at The Troc, December 2 live on iPPV.
It seems like the cat’s (pyjamas) are outta the bag. How foolish of us to try and “Catfish” you, bro. You’ve laid
all the facts out in front of me and I guess I have no other option but to admit that you are undoubtedly, 100% right.
Now before I go hide my face in shame and drown my sorrows in festive, Holiday Eggnog, I’ll leave you with one
question of my own...
