One year ago, the annual Reggie Rivers King of Maryland Tournament took place in Denton, MD with Ruckus defeating Diaz in the finals of the tournament. In non-tournament action Kindred would face ACW Champion Vic Ramon would put the belt on the line against Kindred, a former ACW Champion, who at the time was willing to do anything to get back to the top of the promotion. The former champion ultimately beat the ACW Champion with ring steps. The man known to ACW fans as the "Demon Vampire" would make one more appearance before leaving the promotion for an extended period of time.
"It was an absence that ultimately needed to happen," said Kindred in an interview with adrenalinewrestling.com. "I was upset with everything at the time and it showed. Winning the tournament the year before to ultimately coming up short in those ACW Championship opportunities was a tough pill to swallow. At the end of the day, I was pretty frustrated," he later added.
A year has passed and it has been announced that Kindred will be returning to ACW to face a cornerstone of ACW in Sicend. While Kindred still awaits a shot at once again becoming ACW Champion, the former King of Maryland Tournament Winner understands the importance of his match with Sicend and the tournament itself. For those who don't know, Reggie Rivers aka Prodigy PTV is a former tag team partner with Kindred. It was important to him to make his return at this event.
"This event has always been special to me. Honoring the career and life of Reggie is very important in my book. He was not only a great wrestler, but a great friend and the glue that held this locker room together. I wouldn't miss this event for anything"
