* HumiliatingWager: Found himself on the receiving end of one in 2005. At ''CHIKARA Aniversario Blue,'' May 20, 2005, Knight Eye for the Pirate Guy (Lance Steel and Jolly Roger) defeated Sweeney and [=ShareCropper=] in a match where, had Sweeney's team won, Allison Danger would have to be Sweeney's "slave" for 30 days, but, if Knight Eye won, Sweet 'n' Sour International would have to appear in diapers the following night. Knight Eye won when Sweeney was [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoisted by His Own Petard]] after accidentally hitting [=ShareCropper=] with a chain. Steel pinned [=ShareCropper=] for the win. The following night, ''Aniversario Orange'', Sweeney walked out and said that [=ShareCropper=] wasn't there so he doesn't have to appear in a diaper. Leonard F. [=Chikarason=] threatened Sweeney with not being able to wrestle for CHIKARA again if he didn't live up to the stipulation in the contract. Sweeney stormed off and came back 10 minutes later with Sweet 'n' Sour International (Wrestling/{{Crossbones|TheWrestler}}, Rorschach, Mano Metalico) and himself all wearing diapers. Sweeney complained how they were in this situation because they didn't listen to him, they hadn't gotten on the winning streak that he wanted and, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Crossbones wouldn't put the dishes away]]. Sweeney fired all three guys, said he quits and that Sweet 'n' Sour International was no more, and left through the back door.

During an intermission, when they were doing their best to sell merchandise at their respective gimmick tables, Sweeney asked the Patriot how he was doing. The Patriot responded, "I'm up 12 Large, brother," meaning that Brandi had made ''12 dollars''.
