I've had quite a few people mention to me that my name has been coming up here. After reading the threads, I'll address a few things. I completely understand that this opens me up to more criticism but, I'm fine with that.
First off, unrelated to anything written about me lately; I wish continued success to IWC and PWX. There are so many guys in these two companies that I genuinely enjoy being around including but not limited to Scottie Gash, Chris Lerusso, Chuck Roberts and many others. I've shared many laughs with these two rosters and hope for the best for them.
Most importantly in this thread, I must defend Zubov. Someone called him "Kato's asshole friend". He is one of the most genuinely great guys I have ever met. He is like a brother to me and never has a cross word to say about anyone. The world would be a better place with more people like Zubov in it.
Onto the real topic at hand, RWA. Understand, I am fully committed to RWA. I am in a role that I offer up opinions to make the product better. I love this role and will continue so long as Feelbad allows me to, offer suggestions to improve RWA. With that being said, I am not the boss. The success of RWA is completely as a result of the hard work that Feelbad, the talent and the crew put into RWA. Im just there as a secondary guy to help Feelbad.
Just a few thoughts on things being said about me, I did not kill DCW, CWF or FNW. At the time of their closings, I was not in any way the booker or even champion. I loved all three of these companies and their fans and was sad to see them go but, that was completely out of my hands. (By the way, CWF will be back on July 14th, check cwf-online.com for more details)
As far as KCW, I accept full responsibility for the closing of KCW. We ran into obstacles that would have once never even slowed me down but, after 8 years of running, I was tired. I did everything myself and just lost that fire. I regret it often but, it was probably for the best. The company still wasnt losing money when it closed so it went out on a good note in my eyes.
For someone who posted that Im too bossy in the locker room, thats fair. I expect the best from everyone around me. Id gladly discuss your issue with you at the next show if youd like. Im not throwing down a challenge or anything, Id genuinely like to talk to you about your thoughts.
Anyone who thinks I have an agenda at RWA, you are right. I want to grow the company. If they means cutting some guys then so be it. If it means making unpopular decisions, so be it. My only goal at RWA is more asses in the seats. That means good booking, good promoting, good talent and maximum effort by the talent.
I will monitor this thread for a few days and answer any legitimate questions.
