Ray vs. Midas vs. Stratton in Kingsport

A unique Triple Threat Match has been signed for the 1st Round of the Smoky Mountain Cup tournament featuring 3 of Innovate Wrestling’s brightest young stars. TV Champion Lenny Stratton will take on Mickey Midas and Axton Ray with the winner moving on to tournament finals.

Lenny Stratton’s TV Championship will not be on the line in this tournament match. But being in the tournament is meaningful to him. After years of being the area’s “best guy that doesn’t wrestle in Kingsport”, Stratton made his way to Innovate Wrestling this last year, found success and became a champion. This will be his first Smoky Mountain Cup tournament and he wants to make the best of it.

Mickey Midas made a low key debut at last year’s Collision Course. But he exploded onto the scene this past summer teaming with Myron Reed as The Brotherhood. He is coming off of two of the best tag team matches in company history with a third showdown with The Ugly Ducklings waiting in the wings. With that said, can he prove himself in the singles ranks the same way that he has established himself in the tag team division?

Axton Ray is one of the early odds on favorites to win the entire tournament. A former TV Champion himself, “The Renegade” has been traveling all over the country and he is starting to make a name for himself nationally. He is seen by many to be Innovate Wrestling’s next top star… Will this be the night he breaks outs and reaches his destiny?
