Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced Low Ki vs. Brian Pillman Jr. in a Battle for Respect for MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight this Saturday, November 2 live from Cicero Stadium on PPV.
After Pillman nearly defeated Austin Aries, Low Ki tried to impart some advice only for the rookie to blow it off. The “rogue rookie” believes he’s on the right path and was seemingly offended by the former World Champ’s offering of advice. Instead, inexplicably Pillman felt compelled to mock Low Ki on an episode of H2tv a few weeks ago… and then challenge the former World Heavyweight Champion to a match at SuperFight! It didn’t take Low Ki much time to respond, acting the challenge on Twitter.
2018 Rookie of The Year Brian Pillman Jr, who has a reputation for disrespecting veterans, including his own mentor Kevin Sullivan and hardcore legend Tommy Dreamer now faces Low Ki: a man who has knocked out all of his opponents since this spring… each with 4 minutes! Both men are determined to prove their point in this battle for respect at Saturday Night SuperFight. Will Pillman once again disrespect one of the sport’s greats? Or will we see another KO in Chicago? Find out LIVE on PPV as two eras clash for the first-time ever live on PPV November 2!
The PPV will be available to stream live worldwide and on-demand at FITE TV. You can pre-order at MLW.tv. MLW: Saturday Night SuperFight starts at 8 PM ET (midnight GMT) with a special pre-show starting at 7 PM ET (11 PM GMT) on Fite TV and MLW YouTube Channel.
