Brian Pillman Jr to challenge for MLW World Title at Zero Hour

MLW issued the following:

Jacob Fatu defends World Title against Brian Pillman Jr. in Dallas next Saturday

WARNING: Limited bleacher tickets available! 

Following a brilliant showing in the Opera Cup, Brian Pillman Jr. has secured a title fight against CONTRA’s Samoan Smashing Machine, Jacob Fatu. A championship clash between two of wrestling’s great families goes down next Saturday when MLW returns to Dallas/Fort Worth for a stacked card and TV taping.

Major League Wrestling today announced a World Heavyweight Title Fight: Jacob Fatu vs. Brian Pillman Jr. for MLW: Zero Hour at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on Saturday January 11. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $15 at http://www.MLWDallas.com.

There is unfinished business between CONTRA Unit and the remaining members of the Hart Foundation.

CONTRA Unit struck fast and with violence late last year when they took out Teddy Hart. Now young Brian Pillman readies for retribution and his first world title shot as he looks to conquer the seemingly unconquerable in the 300 pound Fatu.

Pillman, who along with Davey Boy Smith Jr., have vowed payback on CONTRA Unit, campaigned for a title match following his breakout performance in the 2019 Opera Cup. Matchmakers agreed that Pillman’s ranking in MLW’s top 10 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated warranted consideration for a championship bout.

Now official, Pillman will look to do what eluded his father: win the World Championship. Can the 2018 Rookie of the Year dethrone the undefeated World Champ?

Find out LIVE January 11. LIMITED bleacher tickets available for $15!
