And then, Akira spoke. “I am here tonight to apologize for my match with Liberty Lane. What Clarisse Cloutier did was very dishonorable. That is not the way I want to win a match. I don’t like cheaters. To be fair, Liberty Lane was defeating me in the ring before Clarisse distracted her. I fought very hard, but Liberty would have won. So, to regain my honor, I will remove myself from the tournament. I think that in my place, Liberty Lane should be allowed back in. This is a hard decision, but one that will make my fans and my family proud.”
