TJP vs. Brian Pillman Jr. set for MLW Opera Cup tournament


MLW has announced their first matchup for next month's Opera Cup tournament.

TJP vs. Brian Pillman Jr. is set for the first round of the tournament. It's being held at MLW's television tapings at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York on Thursday, December 5.

There will be four opening round matches in the Opera Cup, with MLW hyping that they've "invited some of the best wrestlers from around the world to compete in this one-night single-elimination tournament."

This will be the first time TJP has wrestled for MLW since the promotion relaunched in 2017. He previously appeared for MLW in 2004.

NJPW and Impact Wrestling are among the promotions TJP has wrestled for since being released by WWE this February.

Pillman Jr. is part of The Hart Foundation with Teddy Hart and Davey Boy Smith Jr. He recently feuded with Low Ki, with Low Ki defeating Pillman at MLW's Saturday Night SuperFight pay-per-view earlier this month.
