I love wrestling.
It’s in my blood.
I love competing for people around the world no matter the size of the arena or how prestigious the event is.
It’s the only thing in the world that makes me happy.
I have come to grips that I don’t have what it takes to compete at a high level anymore and I willingly decided to step away from a HOW ring to compete in XPRO because the next time I was on HOTv I would be at least a better version than the shell that I have been parading around.
However, that hasn’t been the case.
Shortly after 97 Red concluded I’m being informed that I’m being promoted to take on Charles de Lacey at Chaos 39……
I guess I can thank Lee for the opportunity even though he knows I didn’t want to return until I felt I was ready, but when does Lee Best do anything I request? I’ve been playing the good little soldier this week as I have been doing meet and greets and interviews until my voice is horse and my eyes are bleeding. I’m exhausted and I don’t know when I’ve had a good night’s sleep this week, but that the nature of the beast known as the wrestling business. Regardless of the situation, I’ll be there in the Windy City ready to compete to the best of my ability.
The man I am facing is Charles de Lacey, a journeyman, who has started to slowly build an impressive resume for himself and in the short time his has been in HOW he has impressed many. I, myself, have been impressed with de Lacey especially with his performance from War Games when he put on a hell of a performance in what people say is HOW’s most high profiled match.
The thing I’m not impressed with de Lacey is his willingness to throw matches because he wants out of his contract. Charles, why do want out of your contract so bad? Are you trying to go somewhere else? Are you hoping that PRIME will sign you and the mountains are bluer on the other side? If that is the case, just remember than HOW outcasts have hit iceberg after iceberg in the McKenna blue waters.
Whatever your reasoning for trying to lose your matches is an embarrassment to everything I grew up believing, and I won’t let you get away with it. You try and get yourself counted out I’ll break it and throw you back in. You try and get disqualified I’ll petition with the official to make it no disqualification. You lay down for me to cover you, I’ll just wait for you to stand back up. You will not make a mockery out of the blood, sweat, tears, but more importantly, the sacrifices my family has made in this business.
I would have more to say, but I’m currently working on four hours of sleep and I need my rest before I wake back up to promote our match you want to throw away like a piece of trash because that’s my job.
See you Saturday Chuck.
