MLW has issued the following:
National Championship Finals set: Hammerstone vs. Pillman at MLW FURY ROAD on June 1st
Witness the crowning of the inaugural National Openweight Champion LIVE
The Hart Foundation-Dynasty rivalry just upped the ante with both Alex Hammerstone and Brian Pillman Jr. advancing to the finals of the National Openweight Championship tournament. Now, both men look to make history as they compete to become the inaugural National Champion on June 1.
Major League Wrestling today announced the National Openweight Championship Finals: Brian Pillman Jr. vs. Alex Hammerstone for MLW: Fury Road 2019 at the Waukesha County Expo Center on Saturday night June 1.
Tickets start at just $10 at http://www.MLWTickets.com.
The bad blood between Alex Hammerstone and Brian Pillman can be traced to a hideous moment this past spring in Chicago where Hammerstone humiliated Pillman and destroyed Teddy Hart’s gold chains as a wounded Pillman’s eyes swelled with tears.
Since this time, Pillman has sworn payback.
Now fate has put Hammerstone and Pillman on a collision course in a historic championship bout set to air on beIN SPORTS live at 9pm ET / 8pm CT on Saturday night June 1.
With Hammerstone soundly defeating Gringo Loco in semi-finals competition and Pillman punching his ticket to the finals with a competitive victory over Rich Swann, the two bitter enemies now fight over championship gold.
Will Pillman cement his place in the Hart Foundation by winning the National Openweight Championship? Or, will Hammerstone realize his destiny and clinch the title as the self-proclaimed franchise brings the belt back to The Dynasty? Find out LIVE June 1 in Waukesha, WI.
