Vs. Constance Chapin [ For the Xcel Championship ] || Joker's Asylum Match
:: Once in a lifetime..
It was like fire and ice meeting up for the same goal for once and not to put one another out. Two people who hate one another.. Two people who have a noticeable dislike for one another over one of the top prizes in VoW. This was the world that they lived in. The number three.. It was symbolic. Having gone through the trials of having to be faced with one another over and over. Each time the outcome being different - going for two would be difficult for anyone else - don’t you think?
I’ve been in this position before.. It was becoming an never ending tale of mine. The Lady Joker, straightforward, no filter, usually going after what she wants and be damned everyone that stands in her way -- faced with the wayward champion or target of choice -- that person who was technically the ‘ face ‘ of whatever. That person who has built a reputation off the bodies of their victims. Good versus Evil. Right versus Wrong.
Having partnered with this person showed me many things that I was not surprised about. We did not have a pissing contest, we went out there and handled business the way that only we could and picked up another win in the record books. To some a throw away match, for us? A test. A test to see which one of us world crack under the pressure of the other. A test to see which one of us would bow down and resend everything that came from our mouths.
Unlike the other stories that are being told alongside my very own.. All eyes will be on the ending of this proverbial slobber knocker. Wanting to see if the former can regain the glory that was snatched away from her in a split second. Wanting to see if the self proclaimed will be able to backup her claims over the last couple of weeks - wanting to prove to the world that she isn’t just all talk - that she has something to prove and willing to go that extra mile in order to complete it. Pure rivalry between two people who have a mutual understanding as to what they are fighting for. As to the prize that will set them apart from each and every person who will attempt to preach that what they have going on supersedes this.
Understand.. This has been building since Heatstroke. My dislike for this person is nothing uncommon. It is nothing surprising. I have wanted to go that extra mile. I have wanted to put VoW on notice and show them what a ‘ champion ‘ looks like.. Even going as far as to gift wrap a rematch for the woman who would turn her nose up to it.
It is about respect..
It is about acknowledgement ..
It is for that person who is sitting there hoping for something different..
The voice versus the voiceless, at least until it fucking counts.
My tale has been like dancing with fire. I have been presented with the nasty part of VoW. I have felt disrespected. I have felt like any and everything that I have done up to this point -- was a waste of fucking time. My talent, being wasted on low card because once again - I am fucking floating. While being given bullshit excuses as to why from the suits who line their pockets each and every time my music hits. Getting a portion of my royalties from my merchandise that sales. Unlike others, VoW didn’t make the Lady Joker -- nor will it ever make the Lady Joker..
Going into this match, one created from the confines of the darkest parts of my twisted and sick mind. I was looking for there to be blood. I was looking for there to be a decisive outcome to everything that has been said between Constance and myself. I wanted to make sure that whoever may walk out of that steel cage after everything's said and done.. Truly deserves to be Xcel Champion.
There won’t be any questioning..
There won’t be any assuming..
Only way to win is to incapacitate your opponent.. Period. Fucking simple..
I have made it well known.. That I walked into Constance’s house during this tale. That I had to play by her rules and came out victorious. Sadly, I do not intend on allowing the same thing to happen when she walks into my house. Will she attempt to use what was said in the interview as ammo? Of course.. What else do you do when you are out of ideas? Lacking creative direction and just biding your time until management hands you that World Championship title match -- gift wrapped just like it was to others before her..
I am tired of feeling like I am drowning. I am tired of hearing that I am not deserving of being where I am.. That I am a nobody that came into an establishment and has won hollowed wins..
There will be a change soon enough..
There will be something that the fans can cling onto when they look at their Xcel Champion and know she is a champion and not someone who held the belt but wants the respect as a former..
This is my opportunity to keep that promise that I intend on keeping by defending this championship title more than a couple of people that have held it in the past. This is my opportunity to show VoW management and those fucks who pull the strings behind the scenes that I am more than a pretty face and deserve better. Moreover, this is my time to fire the first shot that’ll begin my revolution against everyone who stands in my way to the top.
Starting at Armed and Dangerous..
Starting inside that Asylum..
Starting with Constance Chapin..
It’s that fucking simple.. Because I said so..
---Over the last couple of months, I have said it before.. My world has done a complete three sixty. I have finally met the love of my life. I have gone and tasted failure but redeem myself in what I would consider remarkable fashion by winning two championship titles and holding them at the same time. Achieving a personal dream of mine since the opportunity first came around -- I promised myself that I would not allow it to slip through my fingers a second time. Having signed to VoW, having had the opportunity.. As I saw it at the time to face some of the names that people had respect [ Oh! That word! ] for and drop them on their faces with the Killing Joke, the Joker’s Calling.. Whatever I thought about using - I dropped your heroes and villains.
Names from Heath Williams, who has been oddly quiet over the passing weeks but seems to be a step above me.. Why? Down to names like Winter Pine, one half of the Twin City Champions -- a bitch that I dislike but oddly enough, everyone seems to have respect [ Oh shit! Twice in the same paragraph ] for because of whatever reasons are their own..
Maybe I am in too deep? Maybe I have immersed myself into a world that I do not belong to. Having to sit down in a cold little room and get told by someone in an Armani suit that VoW enjoys rewarding loyalty. That they enjoy giving the little man room to shine when that same little man was getting his fucking teeth kicked in last week? Yet, people honestly want to know why people like Ace Watson and a few others are attacking where the problem is?
As a champion, I have a responsibility to do right by my championship title. To do right by my fans and for those people who don’t like me -- they will learn how to. I continue to walk alone. I have no one truly on my side in VoW, I have no one who will jump to social media and call BULLSHIT when they see it. So I do t by myself. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why I wanted my match for the Xcel Championship title inside a steel cage with escapes off? No one can run down and put their noses into my business. No one can dictate the pace of the match and no matter how people may or may not like it -- someone is going to get knocked the fuck out..
But of course, all in all.. The last couple of months have opened my eyes to what needs to happen next. I have never been good at playing second best. I have never been the one who would sit long somewhere with nothing to do -- no one even a challenge that would give me something remotely entertaining and not drop off the fucking edge of the planet , ha.
Now wasn’t the time of worrying whether or not if I were going to win. It is the time to where people should be worried about what I may or may not have planned next.
Least.. If I were them..

Tune: Lost where I belong
It didn’t take long before the social media outlets blew up after her little tangent that she had at Breakthrough Fifty-two. That little sit down with Zelda Lawson, might not have hit the intended targets but left a lasting impression for the Lady Joker; she was fed up. The pressure was on her to deliver on a championship title match that she, alone, has been building up. The pressure was on her to deliver by putting on a once in a lifetime performance that will blow out everything that is after her match with Constance Chapin - the very same woman who she thought would’ve put more effort into regaining something that she lost. Something that she went as far as to say was a hollow win.
It wasn’t the fact that she was being crushed under it like others who have been feeling the lasting effects of losing championship titles after feeling as though they did enough. This pressure was good. It reminded her that she was going into this guns blazing, weapons ready and hot.. You get the idea. She was asked various questions, regarding the Number one contender for the World Championship, the Champion herself.. Hell, even Ace Watson’s name came up once or twice! The answer she gave them.. For each question that was asked was simple..
You watched my interview? I left it all there. If you are worried about my championship or my championship title defense.. I’d be gladly to give you your answer at Armed and Dangerous!
Unlike her other co-workers. She did not play on social media and drop her purse every day. She did not go out there and let the world know how she was nothing but a fuck up and if given another opportunity, she’d do right. She didn’t go on social media to hold conversations that could be done and over with in under five minutes or less over a phone or text message [ As long as it is NOT an iPhone.. They know when you read their messages now! ]
Her focus was on her match. Her focus was on that person who sat back at home when Breakthrough Fifty two was on and took notes. Taking notes about the why. Not realizing that each and every little thing that was said during that interview, she expected it to come back to her in the form of someone trying to make the world believe that she is actually committed to this match. That the signature on the dotted line that she, herself, signed was enough to make her want the Xcel Championship title back.
It was utter bullshit and if anyone believes otherwise? They are brown nosing! Thought the Lady Joker herself. She had made it her business to make sure that everyone was in place on this championship title defense. There was not enough time to worry about the information that her manager, Chava Normandy, brought back with her in concerns with her father and his fucked up ways. There was not enough time to worry about what Constance may or may not say on social media.. If anything. It was time for the games to begin and she knew exactly how to play this one this time.
Across from her sat Chava who was dressed for the occasion. Having returned from her little scouting assignment that her label, Renati assigned her. Being an Renati Athlete, she was put in such a very weird position since besides Chava - there was only one other manager but she was dealing with more of the business side of things nowadays. The two not being together for a while was slightly crazy but after feeling out one another again -- they were ready to get back to work..
“ From what it looks like, Ayana, you’ve done quite well for yourself while I was away. Besides one meet and greet, you made all your appointments as both United states and Xcel Champion. Your sales have increased a little bit during your stay at VoW as well. I suppose that there are some people who can’t get enough of you while there are those who’d love nothing but to burn your shirt because you slam their heroes!? “ Laughing, Chava continued to go through her notes before her gaze met Ayana’s who was sitting there trying to balance a pencil on her finger with a nonchalant look on her features. Chava exhaled before she knew that Ayana had other things on her mind besides sitting down here and talking about numbers.
From the birthday from hell, having your lover more or less call you out for allowing yourself to be treated like shit to one of the most weirdest ways of finding out that someone wanted to propose to them. Even down to acquiring some very close friends that she tries to spend as much time with and making sure that her guardianship involving Kendall was going along smoothly -- even though she left her little ass at her sister Melissa Ramsey’s house. Ayana was out of it. Her gaze met Chava’s and with a small smile, she flicked the pencil from her hand and held it out for her to see..
“ Magic.. Chava. “ The Lady Joker said as her eyes went down on the numbers and she just began to chuckle to herself as she looked over to the Xcel Championship title that was sitting on the table along with them. Chava gave the prize a glance as well before shaking her head.
“ You know what is funny? “ Chava asked.
“ Hm? “ Ayana answered back almost interested.
“ I wonder what you see when you look at that championship title? It has been on my mind since you won it that night. Of course, I was nowhere around to celebrate with you.. But I have been wanting to ask you this question for a while. What does it mean to you to even hold that championship title knowing that in some people's eyes, you don't deserve it? Even though you should be a little higher, treated with a little more respect -- they will only see you as second best and not even to the World Visionary Champion or championship? “ Chava’s gaze went back onto the Lady Joker who held her hand out with a very rested.. Bitch face.
It wasn’t like she didn’t ask herself that question each and every day she would lace her boots up to go into battle. It wasn’t like she didn’t ask herself that question when she would finish up and have to take that walk back in the locker room and know that when she left, the Xcel Championship title would be coming home with her. On the airplane with her. Train, whatever. But there was a lack of respect associated with it.
It makes me mad. It upsets me to the point to where if it weren’t for the fact that I might get fired.. I’d hip toss Ryan Omega again just for the shits and grins. Maybe, I’d get some respect then? “ Holding that championship title means a lot to me. When I have that championship title on my shoulder, around my waist, sure.. It is heavy but it reminds me of the weight that I have to take on in order to go out there each and every night and show the world why I am even holding this championship title. When I won it from Constance, it felt light. I was disappointed, I couldn’t understand why a championship title would feel so light.. Then it hit me. Because at first, I wasn’t truly fighting for it..”
“ I was fighting just to prove Constance wrong. I was fighting just to shut up a woman who has challenged me and the way that I lived and worked. It began to gain weight as I went into battle with Constance. As I had to stand there and be measured up against the likes of Stacy Jones, Casanova English and those fucks who have held this title before me and did nothing with it.. Chava, I don’t want to be a one hit wonder. “ Ayana said as she paused and she took the pen that Chava was writing with and started to draw something on a piece of lone paper.
“ I don’t want to be Kincaid. Someone that I have defeated who defeated Casanova English and has been awarded jack shit for it.. But you have people like Stacy Jones who beats him out the blue and all of a sudden that shit matters? You have people like Heath Williams, who at the current time was the former I4NI Champion -- I beat him. I don’t want to be someone who does something and it means jack shit! That Xcel Championship title? Is playing second fiddle to some bullshit rivalry that no one gives a rats ass about! But if you were a fly on the wall, I can promise you, you’ll see random people come out the wood work just to say they do! Chava.. I don’t want to be Stacy Jones and hold this championship title and do shit with it. I don’t want to be like Constance and have only have three defenses and your only two successful ones were against Zahara before everything was said and done! Come on!? I have already expressed this before but dammit I am serious about this shit, this defense, this division, everything, I spoke on it during my interview. I want to take it a step above that, I want to raise the bar when people come and challenge for this championship title. I want to do more than Ryder Blade did. I want to hold this championship title and when the time comes.. go snatch the world championship title away from ‘ Death ‘ and show the world that the Lady Joker is nothing to be fucked around with.. “
Chava didn’t say anything as a smile just appeared on her features as the Lady Joker’s gaze continued to stay on the Xcel Championship title. Among all of her world championship victories, becoming a two time United States Champion mere days after winning the Xcel Championship title -- this championship title was the one that she wanted to show VoW, to show Constance, that was worth a place higher than where it was. Having to play second fiddle to the World Champion just because that is the championship title that everyone and their mother, sister, brother, auntie and uncle want.
Hell, Ace Watson, his bitch ass has made the Zero Gravity Championship title more relevant. No one can take that away from him.. Even though they try. He gets on social media, uses it as a weapon and gains heat just to make the championship title relevant only because he holds it. People want to shut him up because they believe that if they take that championship title away from him -- it will. You even have the former trying to rally behind anyone who can protect what she set out to make great, forgetting that records have been set in place to be broken.
The Lady Joker’s eyes went back onto Chava who was still smiling towards her. In that moment, Ayana understood why she kept smiling -- growth. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to see that Ayana has matured in many senses. At one point and time, it was hard to deny the woman a championship title in any company that she went to. Whether or not she cared about them was the challenge.. Something that she had to overcome herself.
“ Before you say something stupid out of your mouth, listen. You’ve made it this far. You’ve shown VoW that you are a mainstay in this federation. You have battled the people they have placed in front of you and came out victorious. You taking the lead on making Constance your number one contender is perfect. Your world champion didn’t even lobby for Casanova to get his rematch. You have made a new match type for VoW and it’s Xcel Division, that still falls under the Xcel Championship title rules. Ayana? As far as I am concerned, you are already making the right tracks needed in order to be one of the best Xcel Champions. Constance? She is only in your way and after you defeat her -- she will have to go out there in front of the entire world and explain as to why she actually deserves that World Championship title match Ryan promised her at a later date. “ Chava finished her thought before pulling out a piece of paper and laying it in front of Ayana with a pen associated with it.
“ What the fuck is this? “ The Lady Joker asked.
“ That my Lady Joker, is our contract agreement going for the next two years. Renati was pleased with all your success with me along for the ride, maintaining and making sure that you didn’t do anything stupid. Let me stop joking. But everything is in there. That is my contract, it has my raise and of course I am still exclusively yours unless something causes for a breach of contract which, I highly doubt will happen. I wanted to show you this because you are my friend, my partner in crime. I also need your signature on it to confirm that you even want to continue with this business relationship. I cannot promise you that times like this are going to be easy. I cannot promise you that I will always agree with everything that you say out of your mouth, but I do allow you to dig your own holes and fill them accordingly. "
“ At Armed and Dangerous, you are going to be tasked with shutting down someone who will stand in front of a camera twice and try to prove to the world as to why either she doesn’t want this match or she will kick your ass.. I know you won’t allow that to happen.. I don’t have to tell you that. Don’t let what I told you about your father affect how you handle this. One more match and then we can start anew and show VoW why they should put some respect on your name.. Partner? “ Chava looked at her, knowing that if Ayana wanted to be playful or spiteful, she could deny everything that was just presented to her
You hold the cards. You were miffed at the fact that your ace in the hole left one time before -- what will be your next move? “ Because I love you.. And I need someone to keep their foot in my ass every now and then. I will continue to need someone behind the scenes making sure I don’t make any stupid decisions going forward. You are going to be stuck with me for just a little bit longer.. Just a little bit of course.. “ Signing the contract, she handed it back to Chava who looked at it and just smiled big.
It wasn’t because I knew that I couldn’t do it by myself or if I would. I wouldn’t want to make things difficult when my life could be easier -- considering that I am about to be in one of the fights that’ll consider notable after everything's said and done..
A warrior until the day that I die. Never giving up, never playing to a specific side. I am that person who would come into a room and change the whole mood because I wouldn’t agree with the mean girls or the good girls. A league of my own.. And yet, I am and have always been met with resistance. From both parties. While some would make me a martyr, others would make me the she devil herself. It was the reason as to why I have not picked a side in VoW. Maybe, that is the reason why both the good guys and girls make me sick sometimes because they don’t know when to be quiet. Or when the bad boys and girls come out the woodwork and want to start shit with everyone but when faced with someone who is ready to go -- they back down like the little pussycats that they are.
Going into Armed and Dangerous, things have been pretty black and white. Constance hasn’t said anything about the match. Has said anything hyping it up, hasn’t appeared at any of the meet and greets. If I were anyone else, I would’ve sworn that she was either avoiding me -- or didn’t want to be faced with a promo off the top of the dome because she said something stupid from out of her mouth.
Fuck the personal..
This is all business..
This is about the VoW Xcel Championship..
This is all about respect for the better competitor..
Just as she wanted, right?
Deep down.. I know that Constance may think of all of this as one big running joke, down to the final minutes -- that she may not feel as though she deserved this rematch but this isn't as much for her after everything is said and done.. it is for me. Selfish but truth. Heh, now at least she knows how I felt when I won the Championship title in the first fucking place and was met with sudden resistance.
If defeating her in our series match show the rest of VoW.. the world.. Everyone what we both are made of and which one of us actually deserves to be Champion.. and which one of us actually deserves to be holding the title as Leader of the pack!
It should be the person who fucking showed up and showed out..
--- // ---
How much more can you actually take from all of this? How much more are you actually going to put up with it? Each and every time you turn around, deep down, you feel like you want to throw up. You want to overstep that bound and let everyone know what’s truly on your mind -- but for the sake of the grey area that you dwell in, you cannot. Each person who steps up to you, friend or foe has to be on their toes because it doesn’t take you much to lose your mind. To lose that nice caring side which is Ayana Massey and show them that hidden persona.. That ugly side of you -- the one that lives by the creed, no fucks given. Zero. Nada.
How much longer are you going to allow Constance to walk around thinking that she even holds an ounce of power over you? That she is even a factor after signing something and not even attempting to show up for something that both of you should’ve been at? VoW won’t punish her for missing the interview, she will just say she didn’t know. You though? You have given her just enough to make a solid case against you. From how you thought up this match down to those individuals you don’t like and your opinion on how she was given her championship title match.
Time is running out. You can continue to live this life of lies but you are going to get annoyed and irritated to the point that anything Ace Watson fucking says will warrant a swift ass beating at each and every madness. You can continue to lie to yourself.. But you cannot lie to the person who knows just as much as you do.. Nice pep talk!
It wasn’t a lie. None of it, none of what was thought up was a lie to the Lady Joker. Knowing that with time slowly running out -- she was going to be subjected to people who did not like her and rather have the woman who is like paint drying on a wall. They rather have a woman who had the potential to handle business but in truth, was only there because people talked her up and she would show up when it counted.
The Lady Joker didn’t want to be that type of person. She didn’t want to only be confident on social media and cower down when someone stands face to face with her. She didn’t want to be one of those people who were always crying about their issues and how people were doing this and that and the other -- just no. Having faced likes who were just as good on the microphone as Ayana was. Those who were bigger than her and at that current point and time a little bit better than her, she still found a way to overcome.
Constance wasn’t going to escape the Asylum, she was going to be the leading example as to why you don’t challenge the Lady Joker to her own game.
Having had her mental break down earlier in the week, she was tasked with trying to catch her focus. Having had to go head to head with some of the most irritating people not only on the VoW roster but some others as well. She was happy to finally be back home for a little while, well, in California to be exact. She had all intentions on seeing a close friend of hers in Fatima Silvio and spending time with her seeing she was a huge wrestling fan and also a masseuse, something she has not had in a long time. The one special thing about Fatima was the fact that she was a mute, similar to her friend Rosado but Rosado chooses not to speak -- Fatima cannot but she hears great. It was a match made in heaven that Ayana read lips very well.
Even after an eventful weekend and returning back to her home for the first time since Chava came back home and surprised her. She just looked around at and she tilted her head when she say her little one, Kendall, just sitting on the couch with a bowl of popcorn on her stomach and the television on watching something crazy. Kendall, having been blessed with the sense to know when someone is in her general area.. Knew Ayana was home. The two shared a look for a moment and Kendall just smiled at her
“ You know? Melissa has a more comfortable couch! Your couch is all hard and firm.. Speaking of which, I slept in your room! “ Kendall said almost trying to catch the attention of her mentor but it didn’t work the way that she hoped.
“ While you were away, did you do anything that was remotely training? “ The Lady Joker questioned her student. There was a silence that would’ve made anyone else in the room laugh but the two of them just shared a look and then shook their heads at one another.
“ Yeah.. no. Oh! I took a couple of messages for you while you were away! One was from Sammie! She said to call her and come by when you get a chance, she said you missed your nephew’s talent show. Mireya called -- “, Kendall trailed off trying to gauge her reaction to her lover getting in contact with her after their mini fall out.
And.. ? “ Was it important? “ The Lady Joker asked.
“ She just wished you luck. There was one interesting phone call on there though.. It came from Claire Huntington? She said to meet her at the usual spot!? “
Claire is in Miami.. No way she’d be all the way over here.. “ Thanks little one.. Anything else? “, Ayana asked Kendall who shook her head and went back to watching the movie which was on the screen.
She didn’t tell you everything and you know that. Your little one is becoming more and more like you each and everyday. Good thing you aren’t blind.. Or you might’ve not seen the fact that there was another car parked in your driveway. Thought the Lady Joker as she turned into her office to see a woman sitting in the spinning seat with a very calm look on her features. Standing at the door with a very stoic look on her features.. She didn’t even really care about who was sitting there.. But why?
“ Hello, mother.. “
“ So, more or less.. She came to your house just to tell you good luck at Armed and Dangerous? Damn , you are a better person. If that were me? I would’ve shat a brick and thought nothing of it! “, the voice over the phone sounded off as Ayana was walking through her house now a little later on. Kendall was in the game room now giving people the work on Destiny, which gave her free reign of her own living room.
“ Yeah, I mean. I am not worried about it but I haven’t talked to my mother in what feels like a year or so. So her showing up, then hearing information that my father was the one who requested and paid for Chava to go and scout people.. And on top of that.. The hint that My father is the the one who hired Mireya's dumb ass boss and that’s the reason why she’s away. Shit is linking up oddly and I don’t like it. I have a championship title defense to worry about.. Not how my father is using his resources to make his daughter’s life a living hell. All he has to do is call some of my employers.. That’d be simple. “ Ayana laughed it off but she meant every word that came from her mouth..
“ I almost forgot you do have a very big week for you coming up soon don’t you? I think you should be good and ready now with -- “
“ You’d think that wouldn’t you? “ Ayana interrupted her friend with her words as she sat down at the island style table and ran her fingers through her hair
“ I mean, I do! You’ve yet to be defeated by pinfall and or submission! You are taking VoW by storm and even after this championship title defense.. I believe that you are going to have everything you need to fire back at everyone! Just -- “
“ Sorry.. But I refuse to sit through any more of that. I know what I have to do. I know what needs to be done. I don’t need to be reminded about it.. Just you wait Constance.. “
“ Then all you have to do is win, right? “, Kendall asked her mentor as she stood at a good distance with a glass in her hand and the controller sticking out of her sweat pants pocket.
The two shared a look before Ayana rubbed the back of her head and nodded it
“ Yeah.. all I have to do is beat Constance Chapin at my own game and retain the Xcel Championship title. Kendall.. I want you to understand something.. Okay? Eventually, you will be at this point.. Sitting at home and having people yelling in your ear about how they feel about everything and where they stand on stuff.. including myself. Sometimes, you just have to hang up the phone and remind yourself that they will not be in the ring with you when you fight. They will not be there if you lose either. Trust me. I know what I have to do. I am not afraid, I am not worried about it. Constance is going to show up and show out -- I am just going to do it better! “ Massey said with a slight smile on her features
“ I don’t doubt you, Ayana.. You’re my teacher after all.. “
“There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief.”

[ Recording Live ]
One more time..
That has been the slogan for all of this and for once.. I am not even mad about it.. It fits. Having came into this place with nothing -- not looking for anything but an opportunity and to make the most out of it. See, that is something that people have forgotten in this business. People have forgotten that with all of this, we go out there day in and day out to fight for the opportunity to fight for a prize in a federation. Just the opportunity just to say that we fought and gave it our all or we prevailed and WE are the ones that are standing tall.
There is an old saying.. It is a funny one but it holds truth. There is no such thing as second place. Hell, if that were the case, with the missing Datura.. Lord knows we miss her.. Wouldn’t I be awarded the Quest for the case? If there were second and third and fourth chances.. Wouldn’t people like Heath and Tyron continue to fight over and over? Wouldn’t Ace and Katie do the very same fucking thing? You see.. It is because there are no prizes for coming up short..
Each and every time I look back at my journey, I look at those I have had to go through just to be standing here as the Xcel Champion -- sometimes I don’t believe it! I stand here questioning it. I stood out in the middle of that squared circle and questioned it right in front of the VoW Nation, the world. I don’t believe how far I have come in three cycles.. If I could be honest.. It goes to show that I have heart. I have determination. I have the skills in order to prove to everyone that not only do I belong here.. But I am a fucking mainstay. I am someone that everyone knows will be World Visionary Champion.. Sooner than later.
Baby steps of course. I will not have to sit here and go on a losing streak before I get that opportunity. I will not have to be at the right pissing contest at the right time just to throw my name in the pot like others have before. I will be standing there and no one will be able to deny it. Maybe, that is why I look at someone who is being gift wrapped the championship title match and ready to jump off the ship before looking at what is in front of her.
You see, people in VoW are good for that. You all see something and you all want to jump on it. The good guys have a gang mentality while the villains decided to undermine one another and not work together to control the power struggle -- No wonder you have some woman who believes she is ‘ Death ‘ as champion and people are actually afraid of this person? Come on now guys..
But you people want to always jump at the striped bone that is thrown into the yard believing that it is gold when it is nothing more than scraps. I didn’t have to walk up to anyone and beg them for that opportunity to become Xcel Champion. No. I took what was presented to me and look what I have done with it.. Made it into something that even the former champion will have to come stronger; phrasing. Constance Chapin is going to have to step her game up considerably because this time.. The shoe is on the other foot. There will not be any mistakes being made. There will not be anything left unanswered. How do you like it Constance? Knowing that even now.. This hollowed champion is making waves.. Making you sweat?
Connie.. The two times that we had to meet in the ring. I will not lie to you. I was not worried about that championship title on your shoulder. I could give a fuck less about who you were or what you did in order to win the title. What I wanted from you was entertainment. I wanted someone who must’ve been through something in order to get where she was, correct? You were Xcel Champion after all! I wanted someone who would rival me on the microphone, rival me inside that ring and what did I get? Some half assed match and a pretend handshake afterwards? I don’t do well with bullshit and no matter how everyone else wants to see you -- I still see you as the woman who would run behind any and everything just to make sure that she was covered.. Up until there was nothing else left to hide behind.
You tried to hide behind the fact that you claimed that you gave it your all! That on that night I pinned you.. One.. Two.. Three! You threw everything you had at me and then some, when we both knew you were lying. You got caught up in yourself and you slipped up. My terms? You fucked up! You wanted to finish me off to the point to where you wouldn’t have to deal with me anymore. You wouldn’t have to deal with the Lady Joker knocking at your back door. Standing there with a couple of balloons and a crowbar, daring you to fucking do something!
Yet, you will attempt to play face and act like you are the good girl, won’t you?
You don’t fool me Constance, you have walked around here acting like you are hot shit and you aren’t. You walked around here with such a rested bitch face that people actually believe that you have no personality. No, that shit is there but because you feel as though you can any and everything inside a promo that would mask it all? Was this your version of hiding yourself from everyone? Acting as if you were above them and for a while, went out there and proved that to be true? Probably.
But that shit stopped quickly..
Again, Constance, I didn’t have any real intentions on facing you as early as I did. To be honest, I wanted Casanova just because he talked so much shit -- I wanted to see if I could shut him the fuck up. No, I got tasked with you and here we are. One fuck up lead to you one championship title less BUT you still will come out of this looking good won’t you? Oh!? VoW Nation, you all don’t know? I have already mentioned it a shit ton of times -- You are going to be getting an opportunity for the World Visionary Championship title. In your eyes, you may or may not believe you need this anymore. You attempted to duck the rematch that I wanted for you and myself.. At least until I laid it out on the table for you to take . I wonder why? Was it because you knew that I would get the better of you again.. Or.. was it because YOU knew that YOU’D get the better of you again and fuck up!?
Call my win over you whatever you want. As long as it helps you fucking sleep at night. I don’t care. THIS is where we are now Constance. We are going to be facing one another for the third time. I know, you are tired of seeing my ugly ass face and I am tired of beating that ass of yours.. So we are both tired. This time though, you are coming to my house. This isn’t an Xcel Rules match that has to fucking stop -- enough with that bullshit. This isn’t me walking into your world not knowing jack shit about it. I have the training and the background to outlast you, to make you submit whenever I want!
This time you are going to be coming into my world. Walking down the pathway that leads to my home, MY ASYLUM! There are not people holding hands here. There is not a place for people who have to make up excuses as to why they cannot hang. I already explained the reasoning behind this match. I wanted to pay homage to the former World Visionary Champion in Casanova. But.. I wanted to break away from the norm and do something out of it. I added the element of the steel cage because I didn’t want anyone messing up our match.. But also.. Because I know you haven’t been in one ever!
I know.. To my surprise when little birdies told me that. You see Constance. The Lady Joker handle comes with some positives but a lot of negatives. I have been in cage matches, Hell in the cell matches -- shit, I have been in two elimination chamber matches in my tenure as a professional in this business. When you look at me and say my name, what do you think? You think a straitjacket and thrown away in a cell. The cage doesn’t bother me. I know how to use it as a weapon.. Do you? I took away that option to run away and get a point if you escaped because I wanted to make sure you understand and realize that when it comes down to me.. And if I were the VoW roster -- I’d pay close attention to this next part..
When it comes down to the Lady Joker and I set my sights on you -- we are not done until I fucking say we are! Do you fucking understand me now Constance? I am NOT going to have you run behind Ryan Omega just because they want you to be in a match with who the FUCK ever wins that match later on at Armed and Dangerous. I give zero fucks about that right now. Right here.. This is where your head better be because I want you to understand that all that running you attempted to do got you a ticket right here to my Asylum. Shit, you were more or less dropped off here.
I am not going to drop the ball like Stacy, Ryder and even you. I am going to go into that match and I am going to show you exactly who you are fucking with. The VoW Xcel FUCKING Champion and I'll leave feeling like it after I beat you. Yes. This is still about respect because deep down, you can say you do but you don’t. You can tell me any day, all day that you actually respect my craft or what I have done but I know that you are just trying to save face. I got to see your ugly side, that's what I associate you with now and at Armed and Dangerous, the VoW Nation will see the side of you as well.
If you can fucking make it? Three rounds of pure hell. I am not going to take it easy on you and the fucking moment that bell rings, I am dropping you and I am going to pound your fucking face in. I am going to deliver closed hand punches, sharp elbows, everything I can think of - you are going to get hit with it until I bust you the fuck open. You, Constance my dear, are going to be a constant reminded as to why you shouldn’t worry too much about Death.. But you should worry about the woman who can get to you quicker. I am going to show you why I wanted this match so bad. I am going to show you why I believe that I will be the best damn Xcel Champion in VoW history after I take the former and dust my hands with you.
What will you say Constance? That I spend more time on social media and not worried about my matches, my responsibility and duty in VoW? That I am a nat that wouldn’t leave you alone until I got what I wanted from you? That I forced you into doing something that you didn’t want to do? Tough titty.. Deal with it!
You should be honored at the fact that you are making history along side someone that has been as many places as you have and has done it all as well. We will be going into the Asylum and only one of us is going to be making it out of there with the keys.. Which in this sense is going to be the Xcel Championship title.
Constance.. I chose you because I knew that you’d give me something that no one on the roster could, it was supposed to be a challenge. You fucking sat there on your high horse and looked down on everyone.. Arrogant and smug. Assuming that because you defeated someone twice that you were special. Having the balls to bitch about how come you had to face me again not even a month after seeing one another in the ring. I figured out your game - the very same one you said you didn’t want me playing with you.. But this time Connie, you and I will play a fucking game!
And that game is..
