Friendships in the world of professional wrestling aren't meant to last. Eventually, someone is going to get brained with a steel chair. Or thrown through a plate-glass window. Or, in the case of Metro Pro Wrestling's Michael Strider, stabbed in the forehead with a fork. The stabber, hairy psychopath Derek Stone, turned Strider's face into a crimson mask after Strider became the No. 1 contender for Stone's Metro Pro TV title. That's one way to end a friendship — and start a blood feud. Later, Strider and Stone clashed in a "first blood match." The object of such a match is to make your opponent bleed. And bleed Stone did as Strider sawed his former friend's forehead with a coil of barbed wire. Strider took Stone's title. The feud didn't stop there, with Stone regaining the title from Strider in August, thanks to interference from a new friend, Matt Murphy. And the cycle begins anew.
