Sometimes all a person needs is a change to decode a championship run. For Brian Pillman Jr., moving down to the 205-pound middleweight division is the change he believes will click and bring a title home for the “Rogue Prince.” In combat sports, that change is oftentimes centred around weight. After jumping from featherweight to lightweight, Conor McGregor became champion in the UFC.

Following Pillman’s impressive 2019 Opera Cup outing, which was somewhat overshadowed by Myron Reed and Injustice’s efforts to enter the tournament as alternates, some speculate the change is a direct response by Pillman. Is the Cincinnati native gunning for Reed’s belt? You bet. We’re told Pillman wants to clean out the division, which just happens to include all three members of Injustice and then go for Reed’s title. Could a Reed vs. Pillman match be in the cards for 2020? The Rogue Prince guarantees it.

Major League Wrestling (MLW) today announced Pagano will make his MLW debut at MLW: Intimidation Games on Saturday, April 18 at Cicero Stadium in Chicago. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Arguably Mexico’s most dangerous Luchadores, Pagano is a destructive agent of anarchy. Known for putting adversaries through flaming tables and scarring them with excessive abuse of weapons, Pagano has left a trail of havoc in his wake. So much so he received a crown made of barbed wire at a coronation in Lucha Libre AAA. A devout pagan, the creepy Pagano puts on his happy face as he goes to war in the ring, painting his face with a creepy smile but the deep scars on his forehead are telling: this is a man who has experienced unfathomable brutality.

It is rumoured Pagano enjoys the gore of his opponents and reportedly is thrilled by experiencing his own pain, making Pagano an unsettling and usual mystery. Now the enigmatic Luchador Extremo enters MLW vowing to burn it down as he laughs in the mayhem he has conjured up.
