Jushin Liger Faces Brian Pillman Jr. In A Six-Man Tag Bout At DEFY Wrestling On August 23

It's happening. Sort of.

DEFY Wrestling announced that Jushin Thunder Liger will team with Karl Fredericks & Alex Coughlin to take on Brian Pillman Jr and Amerikan Gunz (Ethan HD & Mike Santiago) in six-man tag team action. Although it's not the one-on-one bout between Liger and Pillman Jr that fans have been clamoring for, it is the first time Liger will step in the ring with Pillman Jr, the son of Brian Pillman, who was one of Liger's greatest rivals in the states.

Pillman and Liger famously opened the first episode of WCW Nitro and put on a classic match at WCW SuperBrawl II. It remains to be seen if Pillman Jr will face Liger in a singles bout before Liger retires in January 2020.
