gandido you a fucking king!

gooo shit JR

Good shit Justin (LingMassacre)!!!

Damn son, thats a lot of Chun!

got it! thanks a lot.

What an Akuma player comes in top 8, tokido, amir, nuki. WHAT!? gs to the US players. Only If Amir could have represented for SBO… sigh.

JR plays Akuma, not Chun

I hope JR pulls it off, it’d be nice to see an Akuma beating out all those Chuns

That’s not the final results, that’s just who’s in top 8. Not saying JR can’t eventually win the whole thing, but don’t get too excited just yet.

That said, lol at all the Chuns.


one time!
