What a feeling! Not only to defeat the monstrous ego of Claudio Castagnoli, but to further prove myself in the
ring. Claudio doubted me and look what happened...maybe he should have worried a little less about his power
trip and more about the competition.
Everyone knows the story by now, Daizee and I joined the BDK because we wanted competition, and we wanted to be taken
seriously. We got our competion, but were not taken seriously - by the very people that recruited us! After two
long years of proving
ourselves time and time again the stage was set. Claudio and I were forced to wrestle in the 12 Large: Summit,
a chance at greatness for a singles competitor in CHIKARA! Was I going to be bullied into laying down? NO! Was I
going to stand up for myself and fight one of the hardest battles I've ever fought - OH YEAH!
I couldn't even enjoy the moment of victory in Philadelphia, however. What a feeling it was to have over
700 hundred of the CHIKARA strong believe in me, chant MY name! None were cheering me louder than my partner, Daizee
Haze! The talk she gave me before the match, hearing her at ringside motivating me and being the first one in the
ring to congratulate me made the struggle we went through worth it.
Although the Arena was filled with people overjoyed to see me triumph over the odds, there
was one person who could not stand the thought of it.
I guess I underestimated his ego. The cowardly way he attacked me after the match, and the career-thretaning
Chokeslam he delivered to Daizee just proves what a coward he is.
I know in time Daizee will recover...how much time...I'm not sure. I know from many years of being in the
ring with her just how tough she truly is. If anyone will bounce back more determined and
better than ever - it's Haze! We fought for the chance to show that we can compete with anyone in the
ring - male or female - and CHIKARA is giving me that chance. I can't think of a better ending to that
story than for that belt to end up around my waist.
