Brian Pillman Jr., the son of the late former WWE/WCW/ECW star Brian Pillman, made his professional wrestling debut yesterday at an independent promotion in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Pillman Jr., trained at the Storm Wrestling Academy in Canada under the guidance of Lance Storm.
“Thank you for taking care of me tonight! Wrestling is such a beautiful and exhilarating thing when the 2 people in the ring have a special bond like we had as soon as we met. You are so young yet so wise,” Pillman Jr. wrote on his Twitter, addressing his opponent of the night, Johnatan Wolf. “BLESSED is the only word I can think of right now!!!”
Wolf wrote back saying that he was honored to be his first professional match and told fans that Pillman Jr. “is the real deal.”
Brian’s step sister Alexis also entered the pro wrestling business as a valet in 2008 using the name “Sexy” Lexi Pillman but a year later she died after being involved in an automobile accident.
