A hashtag I've used often over the past month. Last week on ROH TV was the chance I needed. So Me and The Prodigy (and MK) beat up Eddie Edwards and started the machine rolling.
I've trained over 60 professional wrestlers to compete in matches all over the world. I have also wrestled over 1000 matches all over the Northeast. But I never tasted the success of the great "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards.
Eddie Edwards was supposed to be one of those young men to be tested at my camp. I extended the offer to him years ago, but he decided that it "wasn't for him." He took a different path, and it's eaten at me ever since. If he hadn't been so pigheaded, I could have guided him to the ROH World Championship a hell of a lot sooner than him winning it on his own.
So, the last two months in Baltimore, I finally made my statement. I jumped him during both matches with my Prodigy Mike Bennett. I bent his spine in ways it had never been bent. I slashed his back open and left scars that will never fully heal.
Eddie took a different path and succeeded. For most of my career, my path has been strewn with broken dreams that left me choking on my own regret. But we arrive at the same destination: Broadcast Television THIS weekend.
I've rededicated myself to my training. I've got the hunger back. The officials at ROH know I have earned this opportunity to step in the ring with one of the best.
Eddie, I'm bringing all of it. I hope, I pray, that you don't underestimate me. I'll show you exactly how Brutal I can be.
Because on ROH TV this weekend it will be Brutal Bob's first big national match stupids!
And it only took me 7,397 days to get here.
After that… It is off to “BEST IN THE WORLD 2012” in NYC!!!!
The Brutal One
