Wraith speaks!

Thirteen months ago a masked and mysterious man showed up in Stride Pro Wrestling. For weeks he had not given anyone his name. Then a message came into the Stride Pro Wrestling front office proclaiming the mystery man was to be known as Wraith.

Wraith dominated his opponents and won the first ever Stride Cup and the Legacy Title on the same night. He also recruited a young disciple named Ryzer. Ryzer was not only a loyalist to Wraith but also served as a mouthpiece.

Then in the fall the two parted ways and have engaged in some brutal altercations. Ryzer distracted Wraith during his Stride Cup match against "The King" Chris Hargas which lead to the first time cup winner to be eliminated. At the end of the night, after Hargas defeated Ryzer to go on to the finals, Wraith reemerged. He snatched the mic from my hand and for the first time spoke. "March 2. First blood match." 

General manager Sam Hunter was standing ringside at the time of this announcement. He nodded and signed off on the match. This tells me how much hate there is between these men and just how personal things have become. Wraith wants to hurt Ryzer and no doubt Ryzer wants to do the same. 

So now it's set on Saturday, March 2 at Strideiversary it'll be Wraith and Ryzer in Stride's first ever First Blood Match. Join us at 600 N. Carbon Street in Marion, Illinois.

Show your Stride pride
