AEW Star Brian Pillman Jr. was scheduled to face former top ROH Star Silas Young in Singles action on tonight’s Warrior Wrestling 18 Event in South Bend, Indiana, but the Warrior Wrestling promotion took to their Twitter and announced that Pillman Jr. has been pulled from their show due to the concussion he suffered during his match with Griff Garrison against The Kings of the Black Throne on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite. It was also announced that Chicago’s fastest and hottest new rising star Davey Bang has stepped up and will now be facing Silas Young in a one-on-one match.
Prior to officially signing with AEW on July 12, 2021, Brian Pillman Jr. has been a staple of several independent promotions such as MLW and Warrior Wrestling. Brian Pillman Jr. even captured the Warrior Wrestling Title at Warrior Wrestling 8 in a War of Attrition Match, which has been his biggest win in his time with the promotion.
Davey Bang made his wrestling debut in 2019 and was trained by the Freelance Wrestling Academy. Davey has competed for Warrior Wrestling on numerous occasions, but this will be his biggest match ever for the promotion. Warrior Wrestling 18 is set to take place later on tonight, January 22nd inside Bendix Arena in South Bend, Indiana and will air live on FITE TV.
