The biggest match yet in the young career of Brian Pillman Jr. will take place in 8 days at MLW: Zero Hour in Dallas, Texas. MLW has just announced that Pillman will take on Jacob Fatu for the MLW World Championship at the event.

“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.
