I got a lot of heat online for some gestures from my first match but you just get in the heat of the moment, I didn't mean anything by it. I know Ashur is a nice guy. I don't like finger grabbing, it just really upsets me. I lost my cool, but I'd like to publicly apologize to Ashur for the gesture. I wish him the best, I know he's a nice guy.
