Returning to PREMIER for the first time in over a year, “Cannonball” Brian Tannen (2-2) is scheduled for competition at PREMIER X on Saturday, September 19th in San Jose, CA!
The young heavyweight last saw action in a PREMIER ring against current PREMIER Heavyweight Champion “The God of War” JR Kratos (8-2). Though he would lose the match, it was not without a glorious send. Tannen had gotten the call that every professional wrestler hopes to receive. He would be hired by WWE and added to the NXT developmental program.
Prior to his match against Kratos, Tannen also earned a title shot against former PREMIER Champion “Mr. Athletic” Jeff Cobb (6-2-1), headlining PREMIER III: Cobb vs Tannen.
“Cannonball,” as he was dubbed during his stay with NXT, also holds victories over Nick Ruiz (3-4) in a Number One Contender’s match and PJ Rahl (0-1) in his dominating debut at PREMIER I.
Quite possibly, one of Brian Tannen’s most noteworthy accomplishments is a 600 lbs bench press.
PREMIER X will take place live at Del Mar High School in San Jose, CA. Tickets go on sale August 1st!
