***UPDATE: On Monday, May 1 we received word that due to unforeseen circumstances Tyrus will NOT be appearing this Saturday night. James Storm will be his replacement.***
All week I'll be writing blogs to countdown to the upcoming Stride Pro Wrestling show "Brave the Storm." It's a benefit to raise money for families in southern Illinois who recently lost their homes or suffered damage during the February 28 tornado.

You'll see all the usual stars of the Stride Pro Wrestling roster on Saturday, May 6. Special guest Tyrus will also be on hand. He is currently on the Impact Wrestling roster and was at one time WWE Superstar Brodus Clay. Tyrus will be doing a meet and greet beginning at 5 p.m. at Pinckneyville School 204. The cost for that is $10. But if you think Tyrus isn't coming to Stride to smash someone, think again. He will be in the ring Saturday night. At this time no one was signed on to face the monster.
I'm looking forward to meeting Tyrus in person. When WWE repackaged him a few years ago as the Funkasaurus, I was all in. I loved the character and wish more members of the WWE Universe got into the character. He does play the monster role very well too. And he has plenty of ongoing projects outside the ring.

So don't forget, the meet and greet with Tyrus starts at 5 p.m. and you'll get a picture with him for just $10. Check out Stride Pro Wrestling's social media sites for updates this week.
