Wrestling is often a family institution, a place full of legacies. One of the newest legacies on the horizon is Brian Pillman Jr, the son of Flyin’ Brian Pillman. He’s training now, with Rip Rogers and Cody Hawk. Then, beginning September 11th, he will be training in Calgary with Lance Storm at the Storm Wrestling Academy. Brian’s goal is to step in the ring and follow in his father’s footsteps starting in December or January.
Wrestlers are Fans, Too:
When it comes to Brian’s favorite wrestler: “Growing up my favorite wrestlers were the Hardy Boyz and they still are the Hardy Boyz. I met them when I was a young kid at the age of 5 at my father’s memorial show and I met them recently at an IWC show in Pennsylvania and I tried as hard as I could not to mark out, but I totally marked the heck out.” As for the reasons behind his love of the duo, he says that, “I have more respect for wrestlers with great psychology than, say, the guy who’s jacked out of his mind but has no idea how to tell a story.”
