The National Openweight Championship Finals will come into focus as Brian Pillman Jr. wrestles Rich Swann with the winner advancing to the finals on June 1st at Fury Road live from Milwaukee.   Swann’s newfound aggression and experience could come into play in a major way. Flanked by Myron Reed, the advantage may go to Swann in this big bout with championship implications. However, don’t count the “Cincinnati Kid” Brian Pillman’s scrappy tenaciousness. For the youngest member of the Hart Foundation it is his destiny to claim his first major championship in the sport.  Can he get one step closer? Tune in to find out as Swann and Pillman fight to advance to the finals of the National Openweight Championship tournament.
