Blaire Moise here with some breaking news. I have just received the following statement from Hall of famer, John Sektor:
“When I said I was retiring? I meant it. That hasn’t changed. I know many people are disappointed and upset to hear that but quite frankly? That just means I’ve been doing something right all these years.
I will have more to say to everyone at the end of this weekends show in Colombia.
I know people are angry that I said I’m not going to compete against Arthur Pleasant in this War Games qualifier and I can only apologise.
Which is why I have decided to compete!
I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by the right people at this point in my life and they have all forced me to realise what a travesty to wrestling it would be to allow Arthur Pleasant a free passage to War Games. One of the most prestigious events in wrestling history and I was going to let him get there without earning it?
What was I thinking?
The fans deserve a match and that’s what they will get.
If I can’t beat Arthur Pleasant this time around? Then I’m done and I will retire for good.
But I don’t plan on losing.
On Sunday, I’m going to enter that ring and I am going to dig deeper than I have ever dug before and I am going to leave everything in the ring against Arthur Pleasant. I’m going to shut his fucking mouth for good.
See I have a new goal now. A short term goal. I see myself retiring at War Games. One last War Games where I will put on the performance of my career and call time, with my old trainer Micky by my side.
But Imagine if I won?
One last run as World champion?
Either way, whatever scenario plays out will be the send off I deserve and I am grateful for those in my life who made me see sense.
So put your big boy pants on Arthur. Because this is going to hurt!
So there you have it folks, the Gold Standard isn’t quite done yet. Be sure to tune in on Sunday for what will surely be an explosive show.
