October 8, University of Pittsburgh – Greensburg
This was the second edition of the student-run show, in association with Prospect Pro Wrestling, to support Conor’s Cure. The event saw the first Pitt Fight Champion, Jason Gory, take on his sometimes “Culmination” teammate Remy LeVay in the main event; Gory retained the title before being assaulted by Payton Graham and Christian Noir. This will certainly have implications for the next Pitt Fight event in Spring 2020. www.facebook.com/pitt.fight.7
