Reality Star Gets His Shot at Being King

(Balch Springs, TX) – This February, the Entertainment world will get their first look at Reality TV Star and Pro Wrestler Matt Riviera in 2011, as he is set to face off against legendary wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler on February 26, at the Balch Springs Recreation Center in Balch Springs, TX.

Riviera, while growing up idolized Jerry “The King” Lawler. He wanted nothing more than to challenge his idol, someday, to an epic match that fans would talk about for years to come. This February, Riviera will have his shot at making that dream, a reality.

“Pro Wrestling is 100% a young man’s business. It’s time for Lawler to move out, and on February 26th I will hand Lawler his eviction notice” says Riviera.

Riviera, is best known for his appearance on VH1’s “Megan Wants a Millionaire” and various movie roles. Riviera can be seen in a brand new hit movie called “Happy Hour” produced by Lucky Star Films, LLC and set to be released in 2011.

In 2011 Riviera will star in an MMA movie titled “The Foreigner”, to be filmed in Thailand.

Despite his acting career Riviera is a fierce competitor when it comes to stepping foot in the ring. Before the age of 25, Riviera was a Heavyweight and Tag Team Champion. When he’s in the ring, Riviera has been a thorn is his opponent’s side and looks to be a thorn in Lawler’s side in Texas.

Jerry “The King” Lawler is a WWE Hall of Fame inductee. He’s been a familiar face in and out of the ring as both a commentator and wrestler.

The incident between Jerry Lawler and Andy Kaufman on the David Letterman Show is ranked as one of the “80 Greatest Moments in TV History” by Hollywood Reporter

In the WWE, Lawler is in a heated feud with “The Miz” for the WWE Championship Title. Lawler has held a Professional Wrestling Championship more than 163 times in his 40 year career, but has never won a championship in the WWE.

The wrestling event in Balch Springs, Texas will put two generations of wrestlers against each other as Lawler looks to teach the younger generation a thing or two about wrestling; but not if Riviera has anything to say about it.

What: New Millennium Wrestling Presents “Royal Pains” starring Jerry “The King” Lawler
Where: Balch Springs Community Center – 4372 Shephard Lane, Balch Springs, TX 75180
When: February 26, 2011
