ISO: A new home for Stride Pro Wrestling

Stride's early

Fans of Stride Pro Wrestling know the company was born and bred at the Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion. I'll admit I was skeptical of having a wrestling company set up in a mall, but it quickly became the right place to be for us. We have been fortunate since the start in early 2016 to have a spot where the ring can stay set up and trainees and trainers can workout. 

However, the mall has had its up and downs in recent months. In fact, December 2016 marked the last Stride Pro Wrestling show at the mall. Issues with the plumbing and other safety concerns forced mall officials to restrict access to the facility. Plus there is a laundry list of other circumstances that I won't get in to here. The bottom line is, we're going to have to find a new place to do shows and training.

Ideally, we'd like to stay in Williamson County but venturing into Franklin or Jackson Counties is an option too. The facility would need to be at least 25x50 with a 12-foot ceiling, adequate parking, reasonably priced and indoor plumbing. We'd like to find a place soon so we can continue to have shows, help worthy causes and develop young wrestling talent. If you have any info, please let me know.
