According to previous reports, former All Elite Wrestling Star Brian Pillman Jr. was seen training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida a couple of months back and since then, fans have been speculating what his status is with WWE after his recent departure from AEW when his contract expired and his profile was removed from All Elite Wrestling’s roster page on the company’s official website.
WWE recently teased Pillman Jr. coming to NXT as a mysterious figure was shown watching an old TV set showing footage of old clips, including a Cincinnati Bengals game and WCW from the early 90s. Pillman Jr. is a big fan of the Bengals and is billed from Cincinnati and his late father, Brian Pillman used to wrestle for WCW during this time. There’s no word yet on when Pillman Jr. will make his NXT debut, but updates will be provided once it has been made available.
Pillman Jr. spent three years in All Elite Wrestling, where he was paired with Griff Garrison as part of the Varsity Blonds and they mostly worked on AEW Dark and Dark: Elevation. Brian had been vocal in past interviews on Julia Hart being taken out of the Varsity Blonds stable and being put in The House of Black.
