June the Second is right around the corner. They say everyone deserves a second chance. Well, on June 2nd I get my second chance -
a second chance to make history.
I will get my second chance to
become the first-ever Young Lioness Cup Champion. There has never been a female champion in the 12 seasons of CHIKARA -
the closest was Sara Del Rey, who was the last person standing at the 2011 Torneo Cibernetico. Although I was just a
trainee at that time, I knew the significance of that victory. On that night, Sara was not just the "best female
wrestler" in the ring. She was simply the best.
Back in February, fresh off an injury-related leave of absence, I was defeated in my quest to capture the Cup. I took
more punishment than I thought I could. I was bruised. Beaten and somewhat broken. But one thing Mr. Touchdown did
not defeat was my spirit. My will to keep fighting. My will to win.
So on June 2nd in Philadelphia I must fight like I have never fought before. I will not give up. Not even the cheating
ways of an overgrown high school jock will be enought to defeat me. The stars have aligned. My second chance is also
my chance for redemption. It won't matter that you are bigger, Mark. It won't matter that you are stronger. A
worldwide audience will watch you walk into that ring on June 2nd with the Young Lions Cup. And they will watch me walk out with it.
