|Two new champs|
@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter
Another weekend of wrestling has come to a close. Stride Pro Wrestling held two shows in December. Buried Alive a week ago and last night a benefit show at Woodlawn Grade School. Both shows were amazing and history-making. I'll go into all the details in this week's My 1-2-3 Cents podcast. But for this blog, I wanted to congratulate Stride's two new champions.
|Chris Hargas captures the Legacy Title|
The crowd went nuts as Hargas was handed the Legacy Championship. The win marks Hargas' first championship reign in Stride Pro Wrestling. However, we know he's held god in other companies around the region. With 16 years of experience, Hargas brings a lot to the Stride ring and will continue to make the Legacy Championship a meaningful title just as Flood did. I congratulate not only Hargas but Tony as well. Both men should be applauded for the match they put on.
Spade's victory and emotional response gave me goosebumps as I announced him as the champion. I've known Jay since 2011 in the early days of All American Pro Wrestling's run on television. My first impression was he's a little guy, but he has a big heart. His match against Eric Wayne sticks out to me because Spade was willing to do whatever it took to put on a great match, which included climbing the balcony and jumping from it.
Spade proved Saturday night you don't have to be a giant or a muscle-bound monster beat a bigger foe. His tenacity and intestinal fortitude have finally landed him his first singles championship in Stride. I'm proud of him and what he's accomplished through the years.
Keep up with all the happenings in Stride Pro Wrestling right here. Look for our next show, coming up on Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion.
