You talk about bringing order to chaos? Tell me about it! During my days as Director of Fun, things got wild and wooly. Kings of
Wrestling, The UnStable, a rivalry so intense that it could only be confined by our first-ever steel cage match!
Having said that, I think things are much, MUCH crazier since you've taken the reigns of DOF.
But that's because the stakes have never been higher. Now I'm not talking about the GEKIDO - appointing Derek Sabato to be their
leash wouldn't have been my first choice, but I guess it's something.
I'm talking about the Grand Championship of CHIKARA. The pinnacle. The prize.
When the Campeonatos de Perejas were introduced under my watch back at the Tag World Grand Prix 2006, there was a very clear,
straightforward set of rules for how you obtained a title shot. Three consecutive wins, three "points" if you will, on CHIKARA
sanctioned events earned you a shot at the champs. If a team lost before cashing in for a shot at the champs, that team lost their
points and started over again from zero.
This prevented some of the more hot-headed individuals that held the tag titles from defending those belts
against challengers who haven't earned the right. It qualified the worthy contenders. It eliminated the
unworthy, and sometimes, the downright unlucky.
This brought some order to a dated, and somewhat chaotic precedent that we never set. What is someone attacks the champion from behind?
Or just posts an inflammatory monologue on YouTube? Why should that person get a title shot, simply because they grabbed the attention
of the person wearing the championship belt? You don't need to be a genius of statistical analysis to see the logic there.
The Grand Championship of CHIKARA is the prize EVERYONE wants. That's why challengers are coming out of the woodwork right now.
Tecnicos, rudos, wrestlers from other organizations like Kevin Steen - where does it end? I'm not saying Eddie Kingston isn't up
for the challenge - he's a fighting champ in the true sense of the term. But for a man as fond of systematized solutions as you Wink,
I would imagine something as simple as "three points" has to be an option worth considering!
