|Flood gets slammed|

One of the things I love most about Stride Pro Wrestling is the interaction with fans. That's a benefit of most indy shows. The men and women in the ring take the time to talk with fans and take photos and sign autographs. You don't see that happen very often on the bigger stage and if you do, you'll pay handsomely for it in most cases.
|Christopher Elementary School|
On Wednesday morning a few of us from Stride made a trip to Christopher Elementary School, the host of Saturday night's benefit show. Heath Hatton, Tony Flood and I attended a pep rally of sorts both celebrating the end of the 2018 Winter Games and also promoting our event. Stride will be invading the school's old gym to help raise money for trip students are taking to New York.
|Tony being Tony...|
The gym was packed with students in grades K through 8. Teachers were on hand too as I introduced Tony and Heath and hyped up the championship matches each man is in. Hatton and Ax Allwardt challenge for the Stride Pro Wrestling Tag Team titles and Flood faces Heavyweight Champion Jay Spade. There was a nice roar from the audience and then Tony snatched the mic from my hand and proceeded to insult the students and staff within the very school he once attended.
Hatton heard enough though and took the mic and told Tony there was no need to wait until Saturday to get his butt kicked. But Tony balked until Hatton stopped the number one contender and scooped him up, slamming him to the hardwood gym floor. The students roared in excitement and no doubt enjoyed seeing a little karma coming to the Northern Saint. I only wish when I was that age that pro wrestlers would have come to our school for an assembly.
Don't miss the action. Six great matches are scheduled at Christopher Elementary Saturday night with a 7 p.m. bell time.
