One of the things Tim Donst probably wonít tell you is that we used to be friends. We hung out after events, we played Guitar Hero, we stayed
up late, and for a brief period even formed a band - with Donst on bass and Hydra playing drums.
He probably wonít mention that anytime soon, but I feel like itís important to point out that his bullying, cowardly tactics go back a long way.
His psychotic need for attention through misery resulted in the end our short-lived band. And our friendship. And Hydraís career.
From there, he saddled up with the BDK, where he met his BFF Jakob Hammermeier. While Jakob annoyed me endlessly in the ring and kept me from doing my job,
Donst was always there, smiling, almost like it was his twisted game. He just loves to ruin fun. He doesnít even need a reason.
Maybe he is jealous of my personal connection to the CHIKARA fans, how we all treat each other like family...a connection he can never have.
Maybe he just hates that Iím funny, cute and talented. Maybe itís my music - since he couldnít carry a note if it was in a hammock.
I know what my job is, I donít do play-by-play for the New York Ballet. I deal with wrestlers all the time, so I know my place. Iím the ring announcer,
so I shut up and do my job. Except my job is mostly talking. So yeah, sometimes I get carried away. I love to get a rise from the CHIKARA fans and Iíll do anything
to do it, so I guess I took a few shots at Donst over the season premiere weekend, but that is my JOB. Iím supposed to entertain the fans. Itís called having fun. And
what I said was true: ďTim Donst is NOT main event material.Ē
Letís take a look at his iPay-Per-View record, shall we? At "High Noon" he lost to UltraMantis and Hallowicked, effectively ending the BDKís reign of terror. At
"Chikarasaurus Rex" Hallowicked proved heís the greatest Young Lions Cup champion ever, defeating Donst and taking his hair. Then, at "Under the Hood," when the
critics and pundits had him pegged as CHIKARAís next Grand Champion, he again fell short. One "Backfist to the Future" later and his future didnít look so bright.
Heck, Iíd be frustrated, too. I get the frustration.
But that doesn't give license to take out frustration on a ring announcer. To get physical. To intimidate. That is a pretty pathetic display of
who he is, and he didnít really hurt me. And talking about pathetic people - Jakob and now Veronica enable his every whim. They are as low as Donst, and it
almost doesn't phase me. But it just disgusts me to see Donst contaminate the mind of Steven ďTurtleĒ Weiner, who is a good guy mixed up with the wrong crowd.
Last month, after a particularly humiliating brow-beating in Tampa, I lost my cool in Orlando. I told the crowd exactly what I felt about Tim Donst, and
Iím glad I did because it made me feel better. During that exact same weekend - guess who was making misery in the happiest place on earth?
Watch Tim Donst in that video. What else do you need to know about this lowlife? Playing with someone as if they are a toy?
And how about WrestleCon? In front of the biggest live CHIKARA crowd ever I had a moment Iíll never forget...but for the wrong reasons. After throwing me
mat, he unleashed his scissors and proceeded to cut a lock from my Zeus-like hair as his cronies looked on in amusement. It looked
as if he was going to finish the job, too, but he had his fun. Bullies never finish the job. As if I had a target on my back, Tim Donst took it upon himself to bring
his sick misery train to my home turf, CHIKARA Podcast-A-Go-Go.
Striking me. Knocking me down. Ending the fun. Even though my doctor said it would not be permanent, the hearing in my left ear is messed up because of you, Tim.
Not cool.This is not fun anymore. Iím unable to do my job and I feel unsafe. I'm going to start recording the Go-Go at my place, because I don't feel safe at the
studio any more. I don't deserve to be slapped around, no matter what I say or who I say it to, Tim.
To our Director of Fun: I request you suspend Tim Donst from the next live card, and fine him heavily for what he's done to me. Furthermore, I'd like to see
the money taken from his paycheck donated to the Be A Star charity ( www.facebook.com/beaSTARAlliance). I want him to see that his terrorist
tactics only served to fund an anti-bullying campaign.
And once he's been dealt with, we can finally get back to having fun.
