DESTINY: Something that I have accrued intimate knowledge of in my lifetime. Just look at my CLASH career and it’s easy to see that I am a big believer in what the homosapiens call DESTINY. All of history’s greatest accomplishments have come from people who believed it their DESTINY to make an impact and change the world.
A manifest DESTINY lead to the westward expansion of the United States of America. This country’s very foundation was built on a belief that it was DESTINY for the colonies to become the greatest nation on Earth. DESTINY guided the pen of Shakespeare as he wrote about two star crossed lovers in Verona, and it was the unshakable faith of the Egyptian Pharaohs in their own DESTINY that created the Great Pyramids and made Egypt the most advanced and dominant civilization of their time.
At CLASH Wrestling 100, a night when every match is a main event, the destinies of a Caveman and a Man Beast will collide. This is a match that I believe has been made since before the existence of time. It’s no coincidence that the Man Beast Rhyno went to the exact same high school that I did. That he wrestled and played football for the exact same coaches. Competed on the exact same field and wrestling mat that I did. Everyone who came across both our paths always compared me to Rhyno. Similar stature and build. Similar attitude and intensity. And I’m happy to report that by the end of my days in that school, it wasn’t a Man Beast everyone remembered, it was a Caveman.
I know that Rhyno has wrestled all over the globe and has done great things in this sport. He is widely considered one of the most ferocious competitors to ever step inside the squared circle. But he has never tangled with the Caveman, not once beaten The Barefoot Brawler. On August 6th, just like I’ve done my entire life, I will compete with The Man Beast and I will win. I’m going to supplant his legacy with my own. It’s no coincidence that at the biggest show in CLASH Wrestling history I will be facing Rhyno.
Once I’ve ripped through the tough skin of Rhyno; I’ll be back to crush the bones of Cameron Skyy.
Its my DESTINY
