The last time fans saw Farmer Billy Hills in a Stride Pro Wrestling ring it was October 2017. Shortly after that Farmer injured his back and was required to take some time off to recuperate from the injury. After months of rehab and physical therapy, Farmer made his return to the benefit show in Christopher, Illinois. 

A fatal four-way match had been announced to name the number one contender for the Legacy Championship. Former champion 'T-Dog' Jerry Travelstead, Ace Hawkins and JD Wilk found out Saturday night that the big man from Mud Lick, Kentucky would be their opponent. The fans cheered loudly as Farmer's familiar theme music filled the school gymnasium.

The action was intense as all four men want to cement their 'legacy' in Stride Pro Wrestling. But in the end, it was a refreshed and energetic Farmer who prevailed. He pinned Hawkins, despite some chaos at the end involving the new Legacy Champion Anonymous and his newly picked 'disciple'. Even after the shenanigans, Farmer, Ace and T-Dog ran the bad guys off and Farmer soaked in the ovation from the adoring crowd. Farmer will no doubt be on hand at this Saturday's 'Anniversary Show'. Stay tuned for more details.

As we celebrate Farmer's return though, I did want to mention that JD Wilk was injured in that match. He's had ongoing shoulder issues and has re-aggravated the problem. As of this writing, Wilk says he's hanging up his boots for the final time. My thoughts are with him as he makes this challenging decision and I wish him well in everything in his future.
