Pillman Jr. On Why He Is Able To Work AEW While Still W/ MLW

Top MLW Star Brian Pillman Jr., who recently just made his AEW debut against Shawn Spears, was interviewed by Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk not too long ago on a number of topics, including how he is able to work for All Elite Wrestling while still being under contract with MLW.

This is what Brian Pillman Jr. said:

“I think what happened with the COVID-19 pandemic was they [MLW] got very apprehensive with running shows meanwhile you have Impact [Wrestling], AEW and WWE that are running shows with no fans.” “It was just hard for me to sit still and wait for them to bring me an opportunity.”

“I just went out and chased the opportunities that were available to me. Per my contract, I was allowed to work for AEW. So it was a no-brainer to chase an opportunity at AEW.”

Brian Pillman Jr. then talked about not knowing MLW’s future plans or when MLW’s next show is, which is why he needed to look somewhere else for work.

This is what Brian Pillman Jr. said:

“I’m not sure what their future plans are or when MLW’s next show is.” “I think not having that information, not having that security, and knowing when I was going back to work made it easier to look somewhere else for work.”

A statement was sent to WrestleZone by MLW regarding Brian Pillman Jr., which states that Brian is not released and is fully aware of MLW’s schedule and he will be contacted if MLW needs him. The statement also reads that if he elects to perform elsewhere under the terms of his deal, he certainly has our full blessing to do so.

You can check out MLW’s full statement below:

“Brian is not released and is fully aware of our schedule, which includes events October 3rd and December 5th pending the state of the pandemic.” “We put the health of our talent/staff and their family and our fans before bookings, which is why we are not running at the moment. We’ve been in contact with Brian to relay this. If he elects to perform elsewhere under the terms of his deal, he certainly has our full blessing to do so.”
