What's Heath Hatton's legacy?

Former Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Heath Hatton has been putting his body on the line for years as a professional wrestler. He’s been around the world and has wrestled for WWE (Extreme Rules 2012). But as you might expect, Heath’s body has been through a lot. By his own admission, he has aches and pains that a man his age shouldn’t encounter. Now his in-ring career could be winding down if Legacy Champion Tony Flood has his way.

At the last Stride show, Flood shocked many by pinning Hatton in a Legacy Title match. Remember, if Flood holds onto the belt through 2017, he will replace his longtime nemesis Sam Hunter at the Stride Pro Wrestling General Manager. But after Hatton got cheated out of the win last month, he declared he’d put his and Sam’s careers on the line against Flood.

Flood as you might expect gladly accepted the offer. He has a win over Hatton heading into this rematch. One more win and he eliminates two birds with one stone, taking out both Hatton and Hunter. But in my 1-2-3 cents, this will be no easy task for Flood. Despite the abuse and pain, Hatton has experienced, he LOVES this business. He LOVES Stride Pro Wrestling and he LOVES the fans.

He will go into Community Consolidated 204 ready to fight. He doesn’t care about winning the Legacy title. Hatton’s legacy has already been cemented as one of the best on the indy scene. His objective, which has been the objective of many wrestlers before him is to shut up the loud-mouthed Flood. (I say that with all due respect.)

This match will be one for the ages. History will be made either way. If Hatton wins, he becomes the first Stride wrestler to win two singles championships in the company. If he loses, he and Sam Hunter leave.

The action comes to Community Consolidated School 204 in Pinckneyville this Friday night. A meet and greet with Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat" starts at 5 p.m. The wrestling action follows starting at 6:30 p.m. Call (618) 357-2419 for ticket information.
