One of the most highly-touted prospects in the sport has finally made it to the major leagues. Wearing Bengal print trunks like his father, Brian Pillman Jr. is looking to follow his own path to championship gold, fame and fortune in the sport.
With a rock star’s swagger and look, Pillman can talk the talk. But what separates Pillman from the pack? He can also back it up it up in the ring.
Employing a combination of aerial attacks and aggressive physicality, the 6-foot 2-inch Cincinnati native is an explosive combination, which provides plenty of challenges for his adversaries.
Mentored by his father’s rival, Kevin Sullivan, this Pillman respects the “bookerman,” who took him under his wing at a young age. And the results speak for themselves. At the age of 23, he inked a long-term contract with MLW as he sets in motion what he believes is his destiny to be champion.
Trained by Lance Storm in Calgary as well as the renowned Rip Rogers, Pillman has quickly turned heads with his blend of technical precision and agility.
With a college degree and background in lacrosse, Pillman has a sharp mind for the business end of the sport.
As disciplined as he is, he’s also not afraid to cause chaos. Enter the Hart Foundation. The youngest member of the new era Hart Foundation — alongside Teddy Hart and the mighty Davey Boy Smith Jr. — many wonder if the humble Pillman will remain honorable or be tempted by the notorious ways of the Hart Foundation.
