Wrestling and Celebreality Star Matt Riviera Ready to “Old School” Opponent in Russellville Event

(Russellville, AR) – A combination of professional wrestling and the bright lights of national TV stardom will descend on Russellville on September 12, as hometown boy-made good Matt Riviera headlines a special wrestling event that will benefit local charity.

Mid-South Wrestling is putting on the card, dubbed “Russellmania,” which features celebreality star Riviera, a Russellville native, taking on TNA Superstar “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal.

Riviera, who recently charmed and wowed audiences on VH1 while starring in one of the network’s reality shows, is a self-proclaimed “old school” wrestler and is chomping at the bit to show off his acclaimed skills in front of a hometown crowd.

“It’s time to ‘old school’ these ‘new school’ pretenders,” Riviera said recently about his opponent, the colorful “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal. “And it will be even more fun to do so in front of my friends and family and fans,” Riviera added.

“I’m true old school. Lethal’s a cheap imitation,” Riviera says of his match.

Riviera is not only a pro wrestling star and VH1 sensation; he also produces movies and acts.

In addition to the headliner featuring Riviera, the card contains an International Title Match between champion The Atomic Dogg and challenger Tim Storm.

There’s also a ladies’ match pitting Malia Hosaka and “The Goddess of Wrestling” Athena.

“Nature Boy” Buddy Landel returns to the ring, and others in action will include Jeff Jett, Prince Al Farat, and many more.

The event is a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of the Arkansas River Valley.

“Russellville did a lot for me,” Riviera says, “so I want to do something in return.”

Riviera didn’t stop there.

“Can’t disappoint the ladies, either!,” Riviera says of his adoring female following that is sure to be out in full force.

The action takes place on Saturday, Sept. 12 at 8:00 p.m. at LV Williamson Boys & Girls Club in Russellville.

Ticket prices range from $5-20, with kids ages 5 and under getting in for free.
