Earlier in the week, I posted a video about the fatal four-way cage match to determine the new number one contender to the Legacy Championship at Stride Goes Steel in the 'Ville. Since that video, another wrestler has been added to the mix. He will compete against Chris Hargas, Arron Brooks, Scott Phoenix and Cash Borden.
In that original video, I commented on Hargas being the odds-on favorite due to his size and by the virtue of being the former champ. However, with Eads in the mix, the dynamic of the match has changed. He's now the biggest competitor in the cage, standing at 6'4'' and weighing in at around 240 pounds. I've been a fan of Eads since first seeing him compete in 2015 and interviewing him for the My 1-2-3 Cents podcast.
I don't know that I've ever seen five guys go at it inside a steel cage with one single winner being declared. It's going to be chaotic, especially with the future of the Legacy Championship on the line. The title has earned a lot of respect here in Stride and everyone involved is hungry for a shot. Hargas is the only former singles champ in Stride in the match. Despite the two big dogs being in the match, don't sell Borden, Phoenix nor Brooks short. Each man has had success in the ring against much larger opponents before.
So will be the winner? You'll have to join us at Pinckneyville High School Saturday (May 26). Bell time is 6:30 p.m. We'll see you there.
