In yesterday's post, I mentioned history being made at least twice this Thursday night at Rent One Park in Marion, Illinois. Stride Pro Wrestling will crown the first-ever No Limits Champion as well as the first-ever Women's Champion.
Women's wrestling has grown in popularity over the years. When I first started watching wrestling in the mid-80s, the ladies had few opportunities. Now there are all-women companies out there providing a huge spotlight for female wrestlers. WWE has also done a lot in recent years to change the perception of women's wrestling.
Now Stride Pro Wrestling is going to recognize the women on the roster. Admittedly we have not had a lot of women's matches but that has changed recently. Zooey Moore has worked hard learning the ropes (pun intended) at the Stride school. She's poised now to face off against Keri Gold Thursday night. It's winner take all.
Gold has years of experience and will stop at nothing to be the first to hold the Stride Pro Wrestling Women's Championship. We've seen just how ruthless she can be in the ring before. However, Zooey has worked hard to get to this match. It's going to be two very determined women ready to prove their the most worthy of holding the gold.
Come out to Rent One Park, Thursday, August 29. Tickets are just $7 and include five wrestling matches and a baseball game (the Southern Illinois Miners take on the Lake Erie Crushers). Bell time is at 5:35 p.m. We'll see you there!
