Big news coming out of Saturday night's No Love Lost 2 event in Carterville. Stride Pro Wrestling General Manager Sam Hunter announced Legacy Champion Chris Hargas has been injured. He didn't go into details, but the injury is severe enough that Hargas won't be able to defend the Legacy Title in the foreseeable future. Hunter went on to explain that the winner of the Stride Cup Tournament will also get the cup along with a newly designed belt.

I hate to hear this about Hargas. He is one of the most seasoned and well-respected members of the Stride Pro Wrestling roster. He had some hard-fought battles against Ax Allwardt and Roger Matheus when each man was the Stride Heavyweight Champion. Then he defeated Red Daniels in an amazing Buried Alive match before beating Tony Flood for the Legacy Title. Hargas only had one title defense but was on course to have a great run as champion. It is my sincere hope that he recovers thoroughly and quickly and is able to regain his championship upon his return.
However, this opens up an amazing opportunity for either Jose Magnifico or the man I simply know as Anonymous based on the Stride Pro Wrestling posters. They are the two finalists for the Stride Cup and now the Legacy Championship. They are set to do battle Saturday, March 3 at Christopher Grade School. Bell time that night is 7 p.m.
