Blog: Sidney Bakabella (6.10.15)

Posted: June 10, 2015

This weekend could be a huge weekend in Bakabella-land. Chicago & Indianapolis are two of my favorite towns, and they’re towns that have been very good to my wallet over the years. My Devastation Corporation are the most dominant team in any territory. I have Fritz, Watts, Jarrett, and Verne calling me every day trying to bring them in. The problem is Vince Jr. is eating up their business and they can’t afford my monsters. Luckily The Chikara Wrestling Alliance has the bankroll and the brains to bring them in. Now they have a SOLD OUT house in Chicago. You’re Welcome! I’m also excited to know that Jaka will finally get his hands on Ed Kingston. Kingston likes to pretend to be a tough guy, but when he locks up with Jaka, he’s another wannabe in the land of fighters.

My full attention is on Indianapolis. Indianapolis is Dick the Bruiser’s territory. Dick was kind enough to allow my future Chikara Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion Oleg The Usurper to stay at his place and train for his big match with Hallowicked. Oleg is what a champion should be. He’s 6’4, 270lbs. He’s agile, he’s tough, and he has my brain leading him.

The problem that I see is that Oleg is listening to that “CHIKARMY” more and more. This is a message to those “CHIKARMY” members that think Oleg should go into business for himself…MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. What Oleg and I do doesn’t affect you in the slightest. I’m the last honest man in professional wrestling. I’m doing what is right for Oleg, and my pocket. We have an ironclad contract that can’t be broken. I deserve to be the first manager in history to manage the Chikara Wrestling Alliance Tag Champions and Chikara Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion.

Three months ago, I wouldn’t want Oleg in this spot. I would’ve rather it be Flex or Jaka. But this new fire that I’ve ignited inside of Oleg is something like I’ve never seen before. Vince Jr. can put his marketing machine behind Oleg and sell foam fingers by the truckload. I have full confidence that Oleg will be World Champion. Hallowicked, thanks for the houses, kid. It’s time for Sidney Bakabella to lead the charge and put money in everyone’s pockets.

Oleg, you’re my guy! You’re the King! And soon, I’ll manage the Chikara World Champion and buy my big fat wife that waterbed she’s been hounding me about.

And you can take that to the Pay Window!

A common colloquialism to insult the male children of the human species: "You throw like a girl." This one is confused and consumed.

Heidi Lovelace has been traveling the world plying professional wrestling as one of the squared circle's best modern combatants. For most of 2015 Lovelace toured the nation of Japan following her defeat of Missile Assault Ant for CHIKARA's Young Lions Cup.

This one's first shot at glory as a Wrestle Factory rookie was thwarted by the very Ant that Heidi Lovelace toppled in the finals of the YLC tournament. This one watched patiently from a dark corner of the ECW Arena as Lovelace excelled where he had failed. Eyes across the globe have seen her accomplish the same steps this one lies awake at night envisioning oneself to follow.

If Heidi Lovelace "hits like a girl," woe to any man who challenges her carrying half-wit that he may doubt her force. This one sees clearly. This one sees Lovelace : the threat. Lovelace : the champion. Lovelace : presently, this one's better.

This one runs an extra mile today, studies one match more on CHIKARAtopia, adds to the offensive and defensive repertoire respectively at the Wrestle Factory. In 2015 this one has focus for the benefit of The Snake Pit. It is time to double this one's efforts to leap up rungs of the ladder rather than climb step by step.

Time is now short for opportunities waited on. This one is not only a gekkonidae-sapien, but a starving young lion feeding on the glory of the ring.

Eyes on the prize.

Blog: Mr. Touchdown (6.2.15)

CHIKARA blogsters and nerds alike, welcome to Touchdown City! I know you all remember me as one of the best YLC champions in the history of CHIKARA. However, time has gone by. I am no longer eligible, and with #COTI15 I've got my eyes set on a new prize. My team, Dasher’s Dugout, has a whole new goal to chase. Did I mention we have a new player on our side of the field? A game-changer. The only female Young Lions Cup champion in history - the current champ - Heidi Lovelace!

My mind has been racing since “Aniversario” in Easton. How could such a strong team lose an important match like we did? Dasher's Dugout is championship material. Do we have a weak link? Obviously the three of us, you know The Golden Trio, we can overcome any hurdle put in our path. There’s no doubt you have big shoes to fill, Heidi.

But I don't want you to feel singled out. I read your last blog, and you can’t blame yourself. Being an undefeated YLC champion, I can give you advice about the way to approach your Cup matches. And as a former Campeon, I can tell you a thing or two about teamwork too.

I didn't always click with my teammates. I didn't always have people rooting for me. I did some things that people will never forget, nor will they ever forgive me for. That never got in the way of my success. We can only write the future, from here on out. Think positive about what's going on in the ring, and check your surroundings. You can always innovate with your surroundings, doesn't matter what or where. People think you’ve got something to prove, they forgot what you’re all about while you were on tour in Japan. Well take it from me, it doesn’t matter if they want to knock you. None of us are immortal, we only strive to be so. Hatfield believes in you, Icarus believes in you, and so do I. That’s what matters.

Now that you're with us, and you’ve got that golden Cup, the lights are going to be on you at all times. My best advice for you Heidi is: “champions are made when nobody is looking." Use the time wisely.

It's GOOD.

-Mr. TD
