For those who don't know, this years tournament and every one thereafter will be dedicated to the memory of Reggie Rivers, a former King of Maryland Tournament winner who tragically passed away last year as a result of a motorcycle accident. Reggie competed in ACW as Prodigy PTV and won multiple championships during his run in ACW. He was a locker room leader, a mentor to many and Kindred's best friend in the wrestling business.
Kindred becoming the King of Maryland this year would be ultimate tribute to his late friend and the perfect way to turn a year of tragedy into triumph. As great as it would be, the one thing that it wont be is easy. His first round opponent is one of the best in independent wrestling today in BLK Jeez.
BLK Jeez resume speaks for itself. He is a former CZW Heavyweight, Junior Heavyweight, and Tag Team Champion in addition to being a former Best of the Best Tournament winner. He has won multiple cruiser-weight championships in the state of Maryland, but has never won a championship in ACW. Still, all of the above accomplishments show what kind of competitor BLK Jeez is: a very tough one.
Kindred has been on top of the mountain here at ACW as heavyweight champion, something his opponent has not done. Regardless, he will need to bring his A game if he wants to defeat his opponent and advance in this years tournament. Will Kindred continue his path to pay the ultimate tribute to his late friend? Or will BLK Jeez show everyone why you always bet on BLK?
