Brian Kendrick Returning to ROH for World Title Tournament

Posted by Pro Wrestling on Friday, July 5th, 2013


Yesterday it was announced that the ROH World Title had been vacated and a tournament to crown the new champion would begin in Providence, RI on July 27th and run throughout the summer until “Death Before Dishonor XI” weekend in Philadelphia. The first man entered into the tournament by Match Maker Nigel McGuinness was the top contender for the belt “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin and now has been given the name of the second entrant into the field….


It has been over three years since Kendrick has stepped into an ROH ring, since the “8th Anniversary Show” when he lost to Roderick Strong to be exact, and now he makes his return on August 3rd in Toronto with an opportunity to become the new World Champion at stake!

Kendrick, or Spanky as he was known then, does have some experience in this type of situation as he was one of the four men who competed in the legendary Iron Man Four Way at “Crowning A Champion” alongside Low Ki, Doug Williams, and Christopher Daniels. Spanky and Williams both scored -1 point in that fight Low Ki ultimately won but that was 11 years ago and Kendrick has since become an internationally traveled veteran of the ring wars.

With a surprise like Brian Kendrick announced as the 2nd entrant, who knows who else Nigel McGuinness could be in contact with to compete in this 16-man tournament? Check back with EVERY DAY for more names as they get finalized and pick up your tickets for all the upcoming events right here below!
