It will be bittersweet when The Swarm wins King of Trios 2012. Everything we set out to do will be accomplished. Even if we must defeat
the version of The Colony with assailANT as their captain, I know he understands the greater good being achieved. Winning the biggest
pro-wrestling tournament in the entire world will catapult us to even greater stardom.
We had something to prove. We've proved it. The attention we deserved - we got it. Everywhere CHIKARA goes, even as the world watched live
at "Chikarasaurus Rex," we are the ones that steal the show. And the thing we wanted to tell the world...Mike Quackenbush did it for us.
Your ugly underneath has been exposed by your own hand.
It is bittersweet that 17 cannot be there to witness the triumph of his vision. But he paid the ultimate price for waging war. He knew the
risks, and he faced them down with courage.
17 will most likely never wrestle again, but don't think for a second, Quackenbush, that means his mission has failed. Or that we will
not honor him in absentia. What he began, we will finish.
What will be the expression on your face, Mike, watching helplessly as the living legend of Manami Toyota sees her career ended in a CHIKARA
ring? What would you do if your partner and protege was taken from you at the event where you needed him most of all?
