Greetings of the season CHIKARMY,
As most of you know by now, National Pro Wrestling Day is mere days away. Mr. Defarge and I find ourselves schedule to duel with "The Beach Bums" at this upcoming event. In all of our previous business dealings with "bums," rest assured, we have succeeded. These "bums" may be slightly more difficult to triumph over, given their sandy origin and greasy skin, but even soiled, sullied and unscrupulous men such as these have met their undoing at our hands.
These "bums" have claimed numerous victories in their career, but will find that Mr. Defarge and I are unlike any team they have battled before. After our victory at NPWD, we will advance into the Tag World Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious and renowned tournaments in CHIKARA's stories history. At TWGP, we will defeat three other teams in a single day, once again lay claim to those three golden points, and then challenge for the Campeonatos de Parejas. We have captured those titles before, and we will most certainly capture them again. It's been too long since Mr. Defarge and I had the taste of gold on our lips, and it's time to remind the wrestling world how we do business.

Art is the lie that enables us to view the truth. But what is the truth? What is the lie? What is the art? Where is beauty? Where is imperfection? Who is reality? What is BLANK? ...but more importantly, Boar, what are you?
Every creator sees no canvas is ever blank. An unfilled canvas is home to many masterpieces, it takes the artist to uncover them. I am a masterpiece, I am a creator, and neither CHIKARA nor the world at large world is arranged to accept all that I am.
The violence, the destruction, the gores! I like them Boar, but you are merely a sketch. You hide Boar, you hide behind a face, a grotesque and vile face, but I want to know what's inside... The masterpiece that I am was forced into this current stitched confinement. This is not my choice, but the shelter you choose is yours, Boar. I'm not the one who needs to hide Boar, what beauty do you wish to conceal? How might I help you realize a new aesthetic?
I'm interested in creation, I've sketched, I've traced and I've begun many pieces. But none have been to my satisfaction... yet.
Boar you are grotesque, in an out-moded sort of way, but I am of the belief I could make you more... today! I find nothing as offensive as wasted potential but I know I could help you rid yourself of the waste. Be the first piece in my avant garde. The exhibition begins on National Pro Wrestling Day!

I used to believe that magic was some outside wonder. An attainable feeling that we can pull into and around us, as if there was a Magic Championship we would climb the ladder for, then achieve and harness, if we just believed hard enough. As the turn of the Sugar Creature evolved, tagging with you Travis, I realize it’s so much more than that. You made me see the whole scope. Magic can neither be created nor destroyed, it is nurtured from within. It is brought out by those that want us to reach the ultimate version of ourselves. Your journey from the crowd, to being a referee, to being by my side is nothing to overlook and you’re more than “just” Travis Huckabee. You’re my teammate, the "Golden Grappler," Travis Huckabee, a Rumblebee.
No matter what side of the guardrail you’re on, we’re all connected, even when you were watching Gran Akuma from the other side. I know you studied guys like Akuma and Icarus, admired them from afar. Akuma is grand, but he, like you and I, is human. Don’t let the admiration of man, become greater than respect. Beware of the folly of hero worship. He's a wrestler. Now, you are too, Travis.
From when we started to now, we have grown so much together. Just look at our pictures from when we started versus how we are now! I believe in us, T-Rav, so much so that I will be spreading the buzz about the Rumblebees in MA this Sunday. I won't be there to cheer you on to victory, but the CHIKARMY won't let you down at "Beware the Snowman."
