A microphone is something that can make or break you in the wrestling business. If you have the gift of gab, you can get noticed quickly in the world of professional wrestling. A good wrestler's career can skyrocket if they're good on the microphone. With that being said, it's not ironic that one of the marquee match-ups on June 1st at the Reggie Rivers King of Maryland Tournament involves 3 of the most outspoken people in Professional Wrestling.
For the very first time, Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Scott Steiner will make his ACW debut at historic Michael's 8th Avenue in Glen Burnie, Maryland as he takes on BLK OUT's Rob Ziccardi with newly inducted WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett as the special guest referee. Considering the accomplishments all 3 men have had in their careers, Jarrett and Steiner on the worldwide level and Ziccardi on the independents, when we asked fans what they are most looking forward to on this event a surprising yet common answer that was given to us was "the promos that Steiner and Robbie have for this match." Trash talk and promos aside, the resumes of all 3 competitors involved are quite serious.
Ziccardi, a CZW Hall of Famer is a multi-time CZW Tag Team Champion and one of the most recognizable performers in the history of the promotion. In addition, he is a founding member of BLK OUT, one of the most dominant groups in the history of CZW. He has been a mainstay in ACW for the past 6 years along with fellow BLK OUT member Ruckus.
Steiner, also known to wrestling fans as Big Poppa Pump is one of the most decorated athletes in the history of professional wrestling. He has won the Tag Team Championship in the WWE, WCW, New Japan, and TNA. Most of those championships were won with his brother Rick as the Steiner Brothers. In addition, he is a former WCW TV Champion, United States Champion, and World Heavyweight Champion. Steiner is most notably known for his time in the NWO during the late 90's in WCW.
Jarrett, the son of longtime Tennessee promoter Jerry Jarrett was recently inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in New Orleans, LA. Known to Wrestling fans as Double J, The Chosen One, and the King of the Mountain, is a former Tag Team and multi-time Intercontinental Champion in the WWE as well as a formed United States and World Heavyweight Champion in WCW. He is one of the founders of TNA/Impact Wrestling as well as a multi-time NWA/TNA World Heavyweight Champion. During his time in TNA Wrestling, he was one of the people responsible for bringing current WWE Champion AJ Styles to a national audience for the first time.
Can one of the founding members of BLK OUT put the Genetic Freak down for the count? Or will Big Poppa Pump set Ziccardi down in the Steiner Recliner. How will Jeff Jarrett play a factor in this match? The only way to find out is to be there LIVE on June 1st as ACW presents the annual Reggie Rivers King of Maryland Tournament from Michael's 8th Avenue in Glen Burnie, Maryland.
