This will be Brown’s fifth pro show of the 2023 season. He has ranked no lower than seventh in any of those appearances; placing as high as fourth twice. His last effort was at the 2023 Sasquatch Pro, where he ranked fifth overall. If the rookie can claim a win here, he becomes eligible for his Olympia debut.
Reuben Glass will make his second 2023 pro show appearance. He’s coming off a fourth-place finish at the 2023 Sasquatch Pro. He made his Olympia debut in 2022, placing outside of the top 15. Glass has until Oct. 9, 2023, to qualify for the 2023 Olympia. Only pro show winners advance to that Olympia stage this season.
Joshua Guidry has placed fourth, third, and second in his last three pro contests. He scored his runner-up spot at the 2023 Sheru Classic Mexico Grand Battle Pro one week before this show.
Based on Guidry’s performance trajectory, Guidry seems fated to win this contest. Destiny can be a temperamental master, so Guidry will have to put forth his best effort to bring that win to fruition.
