Wink, whoa. Like whoa. These guys are not happy. I've seen CHIKARA upset some people before...jeez, I was one of them. Meeting
with these guys over the weekend, hearing a little bit of their story...this is something different. Some groups are out to
"take over" or destroy an organization, but not GEKIDO. They just want what they feel is rightfully theirs. You've seen what these
guys are capable of, Wink. They don't obey authority. They don't listen to your hired dogs. You need to make
peace with these guys before things escalate any further. If not, do you think Mike Quackenbush will be the only one on the shelf?
They have demands. Not outrageous demands but demands nontheless.
1) They demand to be photographed like all the members of the CHIKARA roster, and added to that part of the website.
2) They demand a forum to air their grievances, either verbal or written.
3) They demand treatment equal to any other member of the roster.
4) They demand to have Derek Sabato's Twitter linked on the CHIKARA roster page.
OK, maybe I added the last one, but I deserve it.
Look at the list of men they've already beaten. The Colony, Eddie Kingston, Hallowicked,
UltraMantis Black, Jigsaw and Mike Quackenbush. Champions and former champions. The supposed "best" of what CHIKARA
has to offer. Did they win all these matches cleanly? Maybe, maybe not. But you can't expect men desperate for
what they deserve to follow every last rule.
I think we're slowly moving to peace like you want, Wink. You need to give a little to get resolution. We're moving in the right
direction. Don't screw it up.
