Ring of Honor comes back to where it all started on Friday August 9th at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory. The SUMMER HEAT TOUR rolls on with a National TV taping in Philadelphia, PA.
ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has just announced another contest for that night featuring "Pro Wrestling's Last Real Man" Silas Young taking on the world traveled Brian Kendrick!
This is the first time we will see Brian Kendrick since his loss in the World Championship Tournament one year ago at All-Star Extravaganza V in Toronto. After a three year hiatus from the company, Kendrick returned and had a great match with Kevin Steen. Kendrick is a former lightweight division and tag team champion in multiple nationally televised wrestling promotions. He is probably most famous for his tag team championship run with an ROH Legend Paul London.
Silas Young is on a major roll as of late defeating everyone who he is stepping into the ring with. At THE SUMMER HEAT TOUR in Cincinnati, OH Silas had a career altering win in a no disqualification match against Kevin Steen. Silas was the only man to defeat Kevin Steen on his farewell tour from the company.
Silas is also a #1 contender for the ROH World Championship after winning a fatal four way match at AFTERSHOCK in Hopkins, MN. Silas will receive an ROH World Championship shot in his hometown of Milwaukee on the DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR XII weekend.
Kendrick vs Young certainly has the chance to steal the show in Philadelphia on August 9th. How will "Pro Wrestling's Last Real Man" react to the eccentric persona of Brian Kendrick? Silas is currently in the ROH World Championship picture, a place that Brian Kendrick seeks to return to after his chance in the Championship Tournament a year ago. With wins and loses meaning so much in ROH, this match up will go a long way in determining who will stay elevated amongst the top of the ROH roster.
