This friendship is flooded

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

Fans of Stride Pro Wrestling may not know that rivals Jay Spade and Tony Flood have a very storied history together. The two grew up in Christopher and were the best of friends through the teenage years. They even got into the pro wrestling business together. You can hear Flood's take on it in this week's My 1-2-3 Cents podcast

Each man took a different path after splitting up as a tag team. I met Jay in All-American Pro Wrestling where he proved time and time again that his heart and drive helped him achieve success and the admiration of the fans. I didn't meet Flood until he debuted in Stride Pro Wrestling where he was estranged from Spade and had distanced himself from his hometown roots, adopting Canada as his home.

Now the two are on a collision course and it's all coming to a head in the very school they met. Flood's path to the championship match is more colluded than Spade's. Tony hasn't always used the most respectable tactics in the ring. In fact, he hid under the ring during the Stride Rumble earlier this month before dumping Roger Matheus to become the number one contender. Some may consider that a smart strategy, which it did work out for Flood in the end. Spade, however, has faced giants and monsters not only to win the Stride Pro Wrestling Championship but to defend it. 

This match will no doubt be amazing. Both men put 110% in the ring. Flood is hungry, but Spade has worked too long to win the title to just let it go. We'll see you Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Christopher Grade School.
