Well, whattaya know? Another great talent now gone from CHIKARA. Unlike some others, that were
denied opportunity, that were held back, that were treated unfairly, that had to conform, this one was
dispatched in the most disgusting of ways. Another disgusting action from Mike Quackenbush.
You finally got to live one of your dreams didn't you? You used the four different Quackendrivers on 17.
Right in a row. I guess you were so excited about hitting the first one you forgot to pin 17 and just went for
another. You forgot to pin 17 after the second one...and after the third one...and after the fourth one, too.
It must have slipped your mind to just cover his shoulders, end the match and collect your point toward a title shot.
Because a man of your respectability would never mean to hurt somebody like that, right Mike?
Wait...you have before. Twice, in fact. This is not the first time you've deliberately injured 17. This man wasn't your student.
Shane Storm was. Remember your match against Shane Storm in Philadelphia? I know you do. He traded a little piece
of information for a win. It turned his career around. Ended his losing streak. Put him on an upward career
trajectory. He showed initiative. And what did you do? You cast him out. You attacked him. The man you accrued
three points with you then treated like a turncoat. Beating him into submission wasn't enough for you. You locked
on your CHIKARA Special and even after the bell had rung, you twisted it tighter and tighter because you wanted
to send a message. You know why I remember this? I was the referee of that match.
When you failed to heed my warnings and kept the hold on, I had no choice but to reverse the decision.
Storm was a young man with a promising career. You taught him how to wrestle. You coached him to the Young Lions Cup.
You stood beside him as the inaugural King of Trios. And look how you treated him.
Now, you've broken bones and torn ligaments and left a man hobbled in the process. I remember a Mike Quackenbush
that stood for something. He was a little preachy and a little self-righteous. A man that you could
count on to do certain things in a certain way. That adhered to his own code. But the dark side of CHIKARA that GEKIDO sought to
expose... you exposed it for them, Mike. There is a different Mike Quackenbush that is not what he claims
to be. He doesn't appear very often, but you'll know him by the look in his eyes.
Mike, during all our contentious moments as the BDK took CHIKARA to new heights, I never saw that
look. You were in control. You weren't some raging lunatic. As calculating as you
are, there were rules you played by and you believed in that. Then at "Chikarasaurus Rex" I saw those eyes again.
The look on your face as you twisted Shane Storm into submission was the same face I saw as you snapped 17's
fingers. After that Event Center of a few weeks back...I can guess what the look in your eyes was like in
Indianapolis as you went about your dirty work. 17 will probably never wrestle again. It's like the
inmates are running the asylum.
Wink Vavasseur, you seem to be the cause of a lot of the same chaos you claim to combat. I know I'm not the only
one that feels that way. I see the tweets. I read the forum. People are already looking for an alternative to your
way of doing things. I should probably brush up on my politics - when are elections for Director of Fun held again?
