I went through a lot of training to become a great leader, and each day I aspire to be nothing short of that: being
a great leader. I have led the Bruderschaft to many things, and within record time, we dominated every aspect of
CHIKARA. After reaching the top so quickly, and spreading fear and confusion among all of CHIKARA's ranks, I
decided to take a step back and attend to other business. Make no mistake however, a good leader does not have
to physically hold the hands of his subordinates, or smack those very hands, as the situation dictates. All of
this can be done very well from a distance, too. Provided that you are a great leader.
Also, a lot of people think that one of the upcoming matches will hurt the BDK, regardless of its
outcome. You know which clash I am talking about. People say the BDK is starting to get divided, and the
confrontation between Claudio Castagnoli and Sara Del Rey on July 31 in Philadelphia is just another step
toward a dark future for the Bruderschaft. I will share a little secret with you though. Sometimes a little
clash between two different views within one group is EXACTLY the right thing.
I have fought many battles alongside Claudio, and our mindsets are always aligned. I trust him with
He and I think alike in that we agree that some...elements of the Bruderschaft need a chance to...adjust
Let me try to be as diplomatic as my temper allows. Maybe there was a misunderstanding in the past. Maybe
some elements of the group got blended by the initial success and their new found acceptance within the Bruderschaft.
Maybe people aren't as strong and loyal as they made me believe they were. Some might have started to forget
the big picture, the path I had laid before each and every one of them. As a great leader I knew it needed sacrifices
from everyone to bring the group as a whole to a new level of success. And even the most weak-minded seemed to have
understood that in the past.
But exactly two people have, temporarily, been forgetting where they stand. They forget that the Bruderschaft gave
them the opportunities that were otherwise outside their grasp at CHIKARA. These two should recall what needs to be
done to not only protect the group, but also protect themselves. The
two people need not be named, you know who they are...they know who they are. And they also know what to do to
get back on the path of the light, success, dominance. This is one final appeal to common sense:
know your place within the clockwork. Your allegiance is not optional.
