Brian Pillman faces biggest threat to date in Alex Hammerstone next Saturday in Chicago

Brian Pillman will face his biggest challenge in his young, prodigious career as the 2018 Rookie of the Year takes on 6’3″ newcomer Alex Hammerstone in Chicago next Saturday.

MLW today announced Brian Pillman vs. Alex Hammerstone for MLW: Intimidation Games at Cicero Stadium. The event will air live on beIN SPORTS on Saturday night March 2nd.

“Many believe both of these wrestlers are future World Champions,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “You have two franchise players colliding in what could be a snapshot of MLW’s future. Both have distinct styles and are hungry to show the world they’ve arrived.”

Pillman, a member of the Hart Foundation, recently defeated Tommy Dreamer in a bitter months long feud but is he ready for the power and ferocity of Alex Hammerstone?

A self proclaimed franchise, Hammerstone dominated in his MLW debut this past weekend on MLW FUSION (WATCH) using power wrestling to destroy his opponent.  The Phoenix pro wrestler now looks to showcase his agility, power and technical innovation as he takes on the unstoppable force that is Brian Pillman Jr.
