Austin Aries vs. Brian Pillman Jr. added to MLW tapings


MLW has announced another match for next month's War Chamber television tapings.

Austin Aries will face Brian Pillman Jr. at the event. It's taking place at the NYTEX Sports Centre in North Richland Hills, Texas on Saturday, September 7.

Since returning to MLW in June, Aries has won matches against Adam Brooks and Ace Austin. MLW appears to be building to Aries challenging for Teddy Hart's Middleweight Championship.

Pillman Jr. is part of The Hart Foundation with Teddy Hart & Davey Boy Smith Jr. At July's Kings of Colosseum tapings, The Hart Foundation (Teddy Hart & Pillman Jr.) lost the MLW Tag Team titles to The Dynasty (MJF & Richard Holliday) in a ladder match.

Teddy Hart & Smith Jr. are challenging MJF & Holliday for the Tag Team titles in a two-out-of-three falls match at War Chamber. The show will be headlined by Tom Lawlor, Ross & Marshall Von Erich, and a partner facing Contra Unit (Jacob Fatu, Josef Samael, Simon Gotch & Ikuro Kwon) in a War Chamber match.

Kevin Von Erich will be in Lawler, Ross & Marshall's corner for the match. The late Gary Hart will also be honored at the War Chamber tapings.
