Yeah, I know the title is kind of lame, but when I hear 'last man standing' these days, I think of the Tim Allen sitcom. But this blog has nothing to do with the comedian nor his show. Instead, it's all about the Last Man Standing match signed between Tony Flood and 'T-Dog' Jerry Travelstead. The two have one of the most storied rivalries in Stride Pro Wrestling history. 

Ladder match from 2016
Flood and T-Dog intensified their dislike for each other in late 2016 as they each made it to the finals of the tournament to crown Stride's first Legacy Champion. T-Dog won that battle, ascending to the top of a ladder and capturing the title. His reign came to an end at the hands of Flood, disguised as Lucha star 'El Fabuloso'. 

Even after the title changes, the two have always had a professional rivalry, even on social media. Most recently Flood and Travelstead are at odds once again. This time it stems from an incident during last month's Stride Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship match. Jerry was the special guest referee in the contest and toward the end, Flood reached for a baseball bat. The two struggled over it and eventually the champ 'inadvertently' hit T-Dog with the weapon. This rendered Jerry unconscious and referee Brandon Tolle had to make the three count.

Flood blames Jerry for his championship loss to Heath Hatton. As you can imagine, T-Dog has taken an issue with being hit by a bat. The fuel has been thrown on the fire. Now it will be settled in a Last Man Standing match this Saturday night. Join us at Community Consolidated School District 204. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. but a meet & greet with Abyss happens at 5 p.m. ($10 per person for that).
