Another CHIKARA event down, another loss I must live with. I went into Halloween weekend with victory on
my mind. A win over Sugar Dunkerton is not what I wanted. Its what I NEEDED. I was going to use you as a
stepping stone, like you used me, to propel myself back onto a path of victory. But fate spared you,
Dunkerton, I am not so merciful.
Instead, I found myself
staring at the lights for a 3-count at the hands of Kodama in Williamsport, PA. Just as I lost to Chuck
Taylor. Just as I lost to Sara Del Rey.
Now Kodama is, without a doubt,
a fierce, dangerous competitor. But should I have lost to him? Iíve got more experience, more accolades, and the hunger for
victory. All the neccessary tools to take down a combatant like Kodama. Yet I failed.
A weaker man would have walked away by now. Stepped down from active competiton to re-evaluate his career.
I am not that weaker man. Instead, I keep searching for other opportunities. And an opportunity I found...
El Generico. Fans worldwide regard you as one of the top combatants active today. Youíve competed against
warriors from all walks of life not just at CHIKARA, but everywhere from PWG to Ring of Honor.
Youíve won acclaim, won gold, won impressive titles. I was in attendance at King of Trios 2011 when you
retired the 1-2-3 Kid and were crowned ďRey de Voladores.Ē A title that you and I have both earned.
Did you forget I won the Rey de Voladores in 2010? It seems as if everyone else has. You walk into
CHIKARA and opportunites are just handed to you. What does Wink offer me? A cold shoulder. He belittles
me. I don't match his mental image of what a pro-wrestler should be. But I donít want Wink's approval. I want his
I want the respect you get, Generico, when you walk into a locker room.
There is only one way to do that...I MUST DEFEAT YOU IN EASTON. I am going to use you as a stepping stone, like others
have used me, to propel myself back onto a path of victory. When I defeat you, Iíll be one of the best in the
world, and no one can dispute it. Iíll have the respect of my peers again. They will see that I should be
counted among the very best, not some afterthought, unworthy of their votes. Iíll be back on top of the pyramid.
