Summer heats up a week from tonight at the Illinois Star Centre Mall. Stride Pro Wrestling returns Saturday night, July 8. This week I'll be running down all the matches in separate blogs. Today's focus is the Rumble match to determine the number one contender to the Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship.
The Rumble is an over the top rope battle royal. The last man standing will face the winner of the championship match between Roger Matheus and "Farmer" Billy Hills. I'll have more on that matchup in Monday's blog and podcast.
Most of the Stride roster will be a part of this important matchup. Former champions Ax Allwardt and Heath Hatton are in. Red Daniels, Jay Spade, Chris Hargas and members of the DR Party are among the participants as well. It's too early to pick a favorite because as we've seen in past battle royals and Royal Rumble matches, anyone can pull off the big win. Adding the number one contendership to the mix will no doubt make this a more competitive contest.
We'll see you Saturday night (July 8) at the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion, Illinois. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. Who's gonna survive the Rumble?
