Deadpool 2 is one of the hottest movies out right now. And Stride Pro Wrestling star Arron Brooks took advantage of that popularity. He showed up Saturday night at Stride Goes Steel ready to honor the film character. Brookspool made his debut inside the steel cage.

The new look paid off, as Brooks overcame five others. He beat Chris Hargas, Scott Phoenix, Daniel Eads and Cash Borden to become the number contender to the Legacy Championship. Brooks had some assistance from Stride Pro Wrestling fan Makenzie Blades in coming up with the new look. You can see her work here. He completed the alter ego by coming out to Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton, which is featured in the movie.

The fans enjoyed the new look, including Hunter Woodworth. He was Peter Saturday night. Full disclosure, I haven't seen either Deadpool film, so I didn't get it. But I do get that fans fully embraced this, including my wife Lisa. She's not a wrestling fan but came out to watch my match. She later told me Brookspool was her favorite of the night. She has also seen both movies.

Arron is taking a poll on his Facebook page if he should keep the character permanent or as a special attraction. I personally think it's better as a special attraction for bigger Stride Pro Wrestling events, however, I could also understand riding the momentum of Deadpool right now and capitalizing on it. Another idea would be to come out as a trending character for each show. Brooks is a big fan of comic books and with all the movies and TV programs honoring this genre, the sky's the limit. I'm excited about the possibilities as Brooks continues to shine as a singles star here in Stride.
