AEW Star and second generation wrestler Brian Pillman Jr. took to his Instagram several days back and posted a photo of himself with his dog and his car, along with a lengthy statement that fans think is the second generation wrestler’s way of saying he will not only be leaving the promotion, but he will also be leaving pro wrestling altogether. Pillman Jr. also posted a number of photos from his time in AEW’s home base in Jacksonville, Florida.
Pillman Jr. took to his Twitter several hours after his Instagram post and shed some light on what he meant. According to Brian, he is not leaving AEW or pro wrestling as he is simply moving back home to Cincinnati, Ohio from Jacksonville, Florida in order to get his s**t together. Brian Pillman Jr. last competed for AEW on the January 19th episode of Dynamite, where he and Griff Garrison lost a Tag Team Match to House Of Black’s Malakai Black and Brody King.
