Hello, Gematrinators!

Death of Brian Pillman (1997)

Pro wrestler Brian Pillman was recently featured on an episode of Dark Side of the Ring:

His story is intriguing in wordplay alone. Following years of addictions to painkillers, a man named Pill-man died on the date of a Pay-Per-View event called Badd Blood. His death was ultimately attributed to his family’s history of heart disease…or his “bad blood.”

Aside from the date of his death, we’ll also take a look at two other very significant dates highlighted in the episode – his April 15th, 1996 car accident, which left him with injuries he never really recovered from, and his hiring by the WWF on June 10th later that year.


Place of Death

Brian’s tragedy ended at the age of 35 in Bloomington, Minnesota:

Pillman died in Bloomington 136 days after his birthday:

"Bloomington" = 136 (English Ordinal)

His death in Bloomington, Minnesota was October 5th, the date written 10/5.

Bloomington, Minnesota = 105 and 93

Bloomington, Minnesota sits on the 93rd meridian, and the 44th parallel:

Kill and Brian both = 44 Ordinal


Hiring by the WWF

On the date of WWF’s press conference announcing Pillman’s contract, he was a span of exactly 1777 weeks old:

"Numeric ritual" = 777 (Jewish)

Brian William Pillman was hired by the WWE (known as WWF at the time) on June 10th, 1996. He was found dead in his hotel room on October 5th, 1997.

"Brian William Pillman" = 1301 (Jewish)

Both dates had identical numerology, including 13132, and 112:Both dates had numerology of 131, 41, 32, 112, and 22

Pillman = 32, 77, and 112, Brian Pillman = 77

He died a span of exactly 77 weeks after his Hummer accident:


The Moon

The number 108 is relevant to the eclipse code, particularly lunar eclipses. The Moon and Sun are both approximately 108× their diameters away from Earth. The Sun is even about 108× the width of Earth:

Brian Pillman had Primary birth numerology of 108:(5) + (22) + (19) + (62) = 108

He died on October 5th, which can be written 5/10 or 10/5.

Moon = 51 and 15 Reverse


Dividing the diameter of the Moon by the diameter of the Earth yields 0.272 repeating:2160 ÷ 7920 = 0.272 repeating

Both episodes allegedly yielded a Nielsen rating of 0.272:

Prior to adopting his “Loose Cannon” persona, Pillman spent most of his career known as Flyin’ Brian Pillman.

"Flyin' Brian Pillman" = 272 (Reverse Ordinal)


Eclipse Code

In Reverse, the name Brian Pillman sums to 203, which is the Ordinal value of Total lunar eclipse.

Brian Pillman and Total lunar eclipse both = 203

He passed away a span of 137 days after his birthday:

Total eclipse = 137 and 187

The number 187, while connected to the Total eclipse code, is widely recognized as the homicide code:

Flyin’ Brian Pillman has that 187 value in Ordinal.

Flyin' Brian Pillman = 187 Ordinal and 1177 Extended

The Prime Factors of 187 are 11×17
The 187th Prime number is 1117

Pillman’s death fell 1 year, 117 days after he was hired:

This is also a span of exactly 69 weeks:

The words Lunar and Eclipse share this gematria.

Lunar and Eclipse both = 69 and 33

Pillman’s devastating car accident occurred when he was a span of 33 years, 330 days old:


His scheduled opponent on the night he died was Mick Foley.

Mick Foley and Lunar Eclipse both = 533 Jewish

Mick Foley was a span of 121 days after his birthday:

"Brian Pillman" = 121 (English Ordinal)

The next total lunar eclipse to occur after Pillman’s death fell on January 21st, written 1/21.

Brian died 2 years, 108 days before that eclipse:

218 is the value of Moon in Hebrew, Death in English, and his nickname The Loose Cannon in Reverse:

Moon = 218 Hebrew, Death = 218 English

"The Loose Cannon" = 218 (Reverse Ordinal)

That eclipse belonged to Saros cycle 124:

Brian William Pillman = 124 and 313 Reverse

In fact, the next lunar eclipse of any type after his death fell on March 13th, or 3/13.

The 3/13 eclipse belonged to Saros 142. Pillman was born on the 142nd day of the year:

"Eclipse sacrifice" = 142 (English Ordinal)

"The Loose Cannon Brian Pillman" = 142 (Reverse Reduction)
