Stride tag team action heats up

The tag team scene has always been one of my favorite things about Stride Pro Wrestling. In the past two years, the company has seen six different sets of tag team champions. The current champs are the unlikely duo of Ax Allwardt and Heath Hatton. They've been busy defending the belts against different incarnations of the DR Party since winning the championships.

This past Saturday night nearly every possible duo did a run in at the end of Ax and Hatton's title defense. That chaos will carry over to this Saturday night's show in Mt. Vernon. The champs will be in a fatal four way against Dexter Roswell & Scott Phoenix, Arron Brooks & Joey O'Riley and Bo Sawyer & Jason Tiller (the Midwest Monster Hunters). After the craziness, we saw Saturday night there's no doubt in my mind the Mt. Vernon show will be just as insane.

Ax and Hatton have bad blood with the DR Party, but they'll have to stay focused. Brooks and O'Riley have pulled off some impressive upsets; including a huge win over Sawyer and Frank Wyatt a couple months ago. Their speed and agility will be put to the max, as Tiller is nearly as big as Wyatt. Together with Sawyer, the Monster Hunters will be the biggest team in the match.

Their size will mesh well with the champs. Ax and Hatton are two of the strongest guys on the roster and among the most experienced. The rivalry they once had has served them well in the tag team ranks. But never underestimate the DR Party. Roswell and Phoenix are the smallest and least experienced team, but they may the smartest. Add J. Wellington Beauregard and his clipboard into the mix and we could very well see a repeat run for the DR Party.

Head to Roadhouse Harley Davidson in Mt. Vernon for this amazing show. It's a fundraiser for YouthBuild and will also feature former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth.
