THE END... BY STEVE CORINO

The END
 
I can not be blamed for what I am. I am evil. YOU made me this way.
 
YOU, the ROH office.
YOU, the ROH fans.
YOU, Nigel McGuinness.
YOU, pro-wrestling.
 
I remember when I was a small boy, I liked fires. I would get excited when the firetrucks would blare their sirens. It was peaceful. Poetic.
 
I would run to the scene. See the destruction. Smell the sweet smell of destruction. It was peaceful. Poetic.
 
Oh, what ecstasy setting fires brings to my body! What power I feel at the thought of fire!...Oh, what pleasure, what heavenly pleasure!
Joseph Kallinger
 
Society told me that setting fires was wrong, so I put it away. I put away the voices in my head that told me that to burn was to heal. Years and years of abuse through professional wrestlers, fans, and the system, built a fire in that I could not contain any longer.
 
SCUM was formed to burn down the company that hurts the industry that I loved since I was 8 years old. ROH was created on a concept of honor, but 11 years later continues on a concept of beating each other half to death for unappreciative fans and even more unappreciative management. It has to go.
 
The ROH system of bullying would not allow Jimmy Jacobs and myself to rehabilitate ourselves two years ago. We were called names of all sorts, even though we were trying to be "ROH".
 
The ROH system of bullying crapped on Rhett Titus when his partner couldn't take it anymore and jumped ship. What did Rhett get for his loyalty  A doomed partnership with the "martyr" BJ Whitmer.
 
The ROH system of bullying lied to Cliff Compton. While he sat at home starving and waiting for a chance to re-invent himself, he was told "just wait, you'll be next to come in."
 
The ROH system of bullying did everything it could to keep Rhino and I away from each other.
 
And the ROH system of bullying showed their "appreciation" for a true television superstar named Matt Hardy, by chanting "Fatt Hardy", "Matt Will Not Diet", and "Feed Matt Less", while 99.9% of the fans base wouldn't know what a treadmill looked like if it punched them in the face.
 
Courage is FIRE, and bullying is smoke.
Benjamin Disraeli
 
ROH management are the bullies.
The fans are the bullies.
The wrestlers are immature and incompetent robots that only want to please the management and fans.
It must burn.
 
Now we could take this battle and rage it all the way to Final Battle 2013, but we won't. A war can last 6 days or 6 years. We chose to end it once and for all on June 23 in Baltimore because the time is right. SCUM is truly ALL IN.
 
We lose, we disband.
We win, and we will win, I become the matchmaker of ROH and this place burns.
 
No matter the outcome on Sunday, no one will ever be the same. Not you, not me, not SCUM, not ROH. I am prepared for the afterlife...are you?
 
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murders, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with FIRE and brimstone: which is the SECOND DEATH
King James Bible
 
June 23
DuBurns Arena
Steel Cage Warfare
 
The second death is coming. What side are you on? It is not too late to accept Matt Hardy, the next and final ROH World champion, as your savior.
 
Because if you don't, June 23, you and ROH BURN!
