However, the mall management allowed the Stride School to stay open and wrestlers were able to continue their training there. But we had to find other spots to host shows as we waited eagerly for the mall to fulfill promises made about being able to hold pro wrestling events again. Eleven months later nothing changed and it was time to find a new home for Stride Pro Wrestling.
That's where Kevin and Lori Jones came into the story. The couple owns a building at 1130 N. Division Street in Carterville. It is the perfect place to have wrestling shows and continue with the training facility. I'm excited to see how the fans respond to our new location.
Our first show in the new Stride Pro Wrestling Arena is set for Saturday, Nov. 10. Bell time is 6:30 p.m. Please come out and support the hard work and effort that has gone into finding a new place. Thanks to everyone who has been there for Stride through the years.
