As Saturday quickly approaches, I realize how far it is that I have come. A year ago I was a referee, but in just a few short days, I'll be challenging for los Campeonatos de Parejas. I've been given the opportunity to do what I believed to be impossible, in no small part thanks to my tag team partner in The Rumblebees, Solo Darling. Not only was it her winning of the Infinite Gauntlet that gave us this Golden Opportunity, but her courage and spirit were the things that inspire me to attempt the impossible.
That crazy ball of energy is my tag partner, but I'm also proud to call her my friend. I can't help but see the coincidence that this Saturday we will be challenging Cornelius Crummels and Sonny Defarge, the first team that Solo and I fought as a team. When we were just starting out, before we were even called "The Rumblebees," we had our baptism of fire facing that exact duo, and they got the better of us back then. Solo and I have come a long way since then.
Crummels and Defarge have come a long way, too. At the end of Season 17, they captured los Campeonatos and have successfully defended them time and time again. Come Saturday though... their time is over. The Rumblebees have been buzzing, and we've got a few new things that the dirtiest players in the game won't see coming. We've been training harder than ever for this, and Solo and I, we bring out the best in each other. We make each other better wrestlers, and when we get to North Carolina, we'll prove we're better than the guys holding those two golden belts.
In Gibsonville, let's rumble.

OLEG, OLEG, OLEG, OLEG!!! I did it! I just got off the crystal ball with Quackenbush, the DOF! I’m so excited! It’s a dream come true! It’s everything I ever wanted!!! It only took 58 texts & calls, but I got it done! I emailed, @’d, FB’d & DM’d you on every social media outlet, but… You have me blocked!! Here’s hoping someone will send this to you…
You must still be upset for losing to Missile! Assault! Man! at Aniversario. You definitely DROPPED THE ONION (literally!), but that’s water under the bridge. I FORGIVE YOU, just like I forgave you for siding with The Flood & Duke, the big man that broke my spine. We all make mistakes, even those as Mighty as Oleg! Besides, you beat MAM at Aniversario 2 years ago, so consider the score even! Everyone needs tough opponents to grow & become stronger. WHICH BRINGS ME TO MY NEWS! (Kobald is best at segues.)
So the big news is… I got a match FOOOOORRRRRRRRR YOUUUUUUU! It’s a great opportunity for you to make up for the whole Flood thing & prove to everyone what I already know: #OlegIsTheBest! It is the LEAST I could do for you for fixing me at the Eleventh Hour! On July 8th, in Gibsonville, North Carolina, Oleg the Usurper - the man with the biggest muscles, the best moves, & the burliest of beards has a match!!! Guess who your tag partner is! GUESS! DO YOU KNOW WHO IT IS?! DO YOU?!? CAN YOU FEEL IT IN YOUR BONES?!? IT’S ME! KOBALD! OLEG & KOBALD!!!!!
I am ready to do what’s necessary to get our FIRST point towards the CDP. I did a good job, right??? RIGHT?! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!!! I have ANOTHER SURPRISE FOR YOU COME JULY 8th!!! Just you wait! I’VE NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED! See you in 2 weeks!

The time of stories and implanted memories is over. Missile Assault Man, I’ve tried time and time again to get you to notice me, only to be brushed off each time. Now though, you have a great threat standing before you. On July 8th you face the Grand Champion of CHIKARA, Juan Francisco de Coronado...and to prevail, you’re going to need my help.
Before that however, you have a battle of your own that must take precedent, a battle that, until this point, no one else has cared enough to help you even fight...let alone win. I’ve read through the dark pages of your past, and I know what haunts your existence. I’ve seen the tortuous times that you’ve endured and I’ve seen what they did to your mind. I care about what you’ve been through, Missile. It’s no secret, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder plagues your thoughts, pollutes your brain. I know the truth, I know YOU. Through your words I’ve met the man behind the chaos and I have the tools to bring that man out.
The power you need to defeat the Champion is at your fingertips, but it is your own thoughts that hold you back; Hypnotherapy is the answer to your ailment. I’ll not make you dance, nor toy with your head, I’ll provide for you the strength to overcome your obstacles. I’ll set you free of the thoughts that will keep you from victory. Only I have the skills to do this.
A clear-minded perspective on life is what you need in order to reach the ultimate triumph. A triumph over not only the Grand Champion, but more importantly, a triumph over your greatest enemy: yourself. Missile Assault Man, play time is over, and if you want to walk out of Gibsonville, North Carolina with gold, you need me. I am the end to your suffering. I am the beginning of a future bright enough to overshadow even your dark path. I am the answer to your silent cries for help; they’ve fallen on deaf ears for long enough. The Silence will set you free.
