|Me, Curly and Curly Jr. in the AAPW days|

A shakeup of sorts is happening in the Stride Pro Wrestling locker room and it will affect tonight's show at the Illinois Star Centre Mall. Farmer Billy Hills has been injured in a match and it looks like he's going to be taking quite a bit of time to recovery. I know we've had our differences in recent months and Farmer has made it clear what he thinks of the fans, but I want to wish him a speedy recovery. He has the drive and the desire to succeed in this business and I have no doubt he'll be back and yelling at me in no time.
With Farmer's injury that's required a shift in some matches. He was scheduled to face JD Wilk. Now Wilk faces Arron Brooks. And General Manager Sam Hunter has worked out a last minute deal to bring in Curly.
Curly has been a popular wrestler on the southern Illinois scene for more than a decade. He did a few Stride shows in the beginning but a conflict in schedules forced him off the main roster. I'm excited that he's back again (for one night only.) No telling who he'll face, but the fans will be entertained, to say the least.
