Back at Shamrock Slam, Matt Riviera was told that if he could retain his NWA Western States Heavyweight Championship long enough, he would be facing Brian Kendrick at Summer Sizzle. Although he lost the title, he managed to regain it just a few days later, making this match set.
Earlier this year at Reflexion, these two men competed in the final of the Western States Heavyweight title tournament. Kendrick had two hard-fought battles with Ricardo Rodriguez and Jody Kristofferson. Meanwhile, Riviera had a challenging match with Americos in the first round, but virtually had a bye against “Wrestling Personified” Rik Luxury, who was chased off by Billy Blade, leading to a countout without the two even making contact.
This time, neither man will have to worry about being worn out prior to this championship match. Brian Kendrick, the former WWE World Tag Team and TNA X-DIvision Champion will be just as fresh as the man he’s challenging. Riviera, as always, will have Johnny Morton on the outside.
