TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… APRIL 29th: Remembering Brian Pillman

DATELINE: APRIL 29, 1998 – NORWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL – NORWOOD, OHIO


Les Thatcher and the Heartland Wrestling Association presents the first Brian Pillman Memorial Show from Norwood Middle School in Norwood, Ohio.

The show, which attracted huge attention due to the number of Pillman’s friends who were a part of it, was even hosted by the WWF’s Steve Austin and Sunny. Representatives of the WWF, WCW, and ECW were all a part of the event.

The show helped raise money for the family of the late wrestler, who died in October 1997 just hours before a PPV.
