Nothing Without Greed


Well this past weekend didn’t go as expected…but what is expected is that I know there would be hiccups on the way back up to the top.  I found out just how much Jeffrey James Roberts personifies with wrath.  He’s one angry motherfucker all the time and the problem is when you’re always angry, you’re bound to make a mistake at some point.  I underestimated JJR just a little bit and I paid for it by losing the HOTv Championship.  It’s a mistake I won’t make again.  The fact that I was able to win another singles championship should tell you all you need to know that I still mean business and that I’m shades of that ruthless and cutthroat Hollywood that used to run the ship that is HOW.  I mean, I did after all decreed it!


If losing my HOTv Championship wasn’t enough, this week I’m stuck in a tag team match with a man I’ve tangled with so many times, I’ve lost fucking track just how many.  So, Doozer, it looks like Greed and Envy have to play fair and work together this Saturday.  Problem is, I generally don’t play well with others.  It’s historically proven that I’m always dragged down to the pits of hell when I have to rely on any tag partner.  That is one of the several reasons I went back down the singles path, the lonely path as it were..and the evidence is right there in front of you every time.


But alright, I’ll bite Dooz.


I’ll humor myself here.


Make no mistake, though, the instant I see anything in this match go awry, I will turn this into something no one wants to fucking see!  I will eliminate the problem and I’ll take this to a whole other level that no one wants to witness….especially everyone in this match.  If there is anything I know is that no one in this tag team match or the seven deadly sins match at Rumble at the Rock you all are nothing without greed!  I am justifiable but for the rest of you, unfortunately, you all must be purged of your sins and there’s no one better than yours truly, Mr. Executive himself, Brian Hollywood, able to pull off such a task.


Doozer, you can be envious about that all you want, but I highly suggest you follow my lead if you want to have a victory under your belt this week, let alone, a highlight for yourself even if it’s just brief.  Luckily for you, I’m in the mood to take some frustrations out on lust and sloth, Eli Dresden and Bobby Dean, respectively.  Make no mistake though, there will be some purging this weekend as we draw closer to Rumble at the Rock where I will put away lust and sloth once and for all.


Bobby, Bobby, Bobby…or should I call you booby?  Or do you even give a flying fuck?  As a matter of a fact, when have you actually given any fucks?  You are the very personification of sloth.  You are everything I fucking despise in HOW.  No ambition, no care even for yourself.  I guess you could say you’ve been on cruise control most of your career in HOW.  Sure, you once lost weight and slimmed down so much no one even recognized you.  It seemed that even in that light, you were making something of yourself, but turns out it was all just a front, a fraud…just like yourself eh Bobby? 


There seems to be a growing number of frustrations this week for me and it’s an alarming rate.  It’s like all the factors, all the ingredients are coming together for me to just level the playing field this week.  I mean, I love making a point and then going out there and proving that point, but this week it just seems like it’s on another level.  That’s alright, though, because I need to rebound after my loss to Jeffrey James Roberts last week.  It was a close match and I appear to be the only one he didn’t absolutely destroy even after the match.  I can’t say the same for his first two victims which is ironic that you’re one, Eli Dresden.  There’s got to be a reason, right?  Sure he may have taken my HOTv Championship, but I’ll get it back in due time. 


Right now, though, I am looking at keeping the momentum on my side heading into Rumble at the Rock and it’s crucial that I do.  There’s more at stake here than people realize and I guess it’s just because I see a lot more than the average person does.  You could call it a gift, I call it knowing the field and all the players.  Knowing their weaknesses and exposing them when I fucking need to and knowing what their strengths are so if I have to indulge myself in them, I’ll always make sure I have the proper leverage to do so.  Speaking of lust, you’re quite the firecracker aren’t you, Dresden?


Lust is a very dangerous sin, however it is often confused by love.  Lust and love are NOT the same…but I can see how people can get the two words confused.  I mean hell…not everyone knows what they love.  It’s often said that lust is the predominant emotional feeling because love is you actually knowing what you want.  Lust is chasing after something but you know what they say about lust…it eventually peters out and what are you left with after that?


Eli, you haven’t been in High Octane for very long, so it’s understandable when you’re chasing after something that you may want, but don’t understand.  You have to have a goal and you have to have a certain degree of passion, of love, when you are wanting to succeed.  Success comes in many forms but you have to appreciate, have to be acceptable with what you’re willing to do in order to obtain it.  Look at me for example.  I’ve had a very long and prosperous career in HOW.  I’ve had my ups and I’ve had my downs, but most importantly, I’ve kept them favoring the ups.  Quite simply put, I know what I want and I go for it.  The difference between us, though, is I understand it because I’ve lived it but more importantly, I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.


You see, this week I already see a path.  Doozer and I have a lot of history in the ring and the thing that separates him and Bobby Dean is Doozer at least shows that he cares and that he wants it.  He might be envious of others, but at least it drives him in a certain way.  What exactly drives Bobby Dean?  I mean, besides food of course, what drives him?  Exactly, there isn’t anything there and someone who isn’t hungry to do something to be successful is a man I don’t want to associate myself with.  Ironic…the fucker is hungry and eats all the time…but he isn’t hungry when it comes to wanting to make a name for himself.


Fucking pathetic!


We all have those “off” weeks, I get it.  But the whole fucking point of getting better is to learn from your mistakes and evaluate as needed.  I don’t know why the fuck I’m even offering this advice, because I only care about one thing and one thing only.  My goals!  I have a path to be successful once again and I’ll be fucking damned if I let anyone take that away from me.  I have an image to protect, but most importantly, I have investments I have to protect because those investments are everything.


Sloth and Lust are perhaps the worst combination of the seven deadly sins because one simply doesn’t care while the other one can’t tell the difference of needing and wanting.  To me, needing is loving and wanting is lusting.  It all makes perfect sense to me, but am I the only one who fucking understands that?  Is that so awful to say?  You see, I don’t fucking know because to me, I want it all and I’m not afraid to make that jump in pulling the trigger!


I lose one match and I’m already preparing to make that loss right.  I’m already preparing how to move around my investments where they put me in a beneficial place, financially and physically.  I know what I want and I have set my sights on achieving that goal by any means necessary.  Why?


I decreed it so.


I’m not going to let a few people who clearly don’t want it to stand in my way and that’s why, if it comes down to it and I have to do it, I will do it by myself god damn it.  Doozer might be my tag partner this week, but if he knows me well enough by now…and he should…then he knows I’m not going to let anything stand in my way of another victory and adding more momentum as we’re getting ready to hit Rumble at the Rock. 


So this week, Doozer, I decree that we put our differences aside for this one match and get business done.  Then and only then, we can refocus our sights to tearing each other apart at Rumble at the Rock.  I think this is the only time we’ve been on the same side of the ring, so let’s use that as not only an advantage, but an opportunity to put our skills on display to allow us both to go into Rumble at the Rock with momentum.  It’s a mutually beneficial opportunity and you can’t turn those down.  You have to know which battles to use your leverage against and this is one of those battles that will benefit us both.  You can’t just pick and choose…you have to be willing to adjust even if it’s just ever slightly.


It makes a difference, believe me.  So I implore you to see my reasoning in this and this would be the part where you accept my gracious offer to be apart of something that is truly rare, here.


This Saturday, by the time our match is all said and done, we’ll all know where we stand heading into Rumble at the Rock and trust me, it will be revealing…at least to me.  As for the rest of you, you’ll just have to figure that out yourselves I guess.


But this Saturday, I decree that I’m going into not only this match, but Rumble at the Rock with complete clarity.


After all, greed does demand it so, right?


At least I decree it does!
