Brian Pillman Jr. Speaks About Learning From His Father's Career, And Teaming Up With The Hart Foundation In MLW

The junior Pillman is elated.

Two weeks ago at the MLW War Games tapings, Brian Pillman Jr. had the opportunity to team up with The Hart Foundation (Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Teddy Hart) in six-man tag team action. Pillman Jr.'s father, former two-time WCW Light Heavyweight Champion Brian Pillman Sr. was very close with Bret, Owen and the Hart family in general so for Pillman Jr. to have the chance to team up with the Harts meant a lot to him.

Following the MLW War Games tapings, Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald caught up with  Brian Pillman Jr. and asked him how he felt fresh off of teaming with Davey Boy Smith and Teddy Hart.

“Its a blessing to be accepted into that royalty right..." *Interview crashed by John Morrison* "But yes, being in a locker room with guys like that. Being in the locker room with the Hart Foundation. Being accepted into that with open arms, that’s what its all about. Wrestling is literally all about family.”

Pillman Jr. was also asked about what he has learned from his father's career and stated that of the all things to learn, the one thing that he has taken in as his own is learning how to adapt.

“My father accomplished a lot in 11 years. You know, that’s a short career in this business and he accomplished more than most will accomplish in 30 in this business." Pillman Jr. said. "So, its a lot of pressure to live up to that level of success - that work rate that he had, that charisma. The charisma may come naturally but getting in that ring, there’s different styles of fighters everyday and you gotta learn, you got to adapt. That’s the number one thing is adapting.”
