Brian Pillman, Jr is trying to get released from MLW, but they aren’t letting him go. He isn’t done with AEW either.
The second generation wrestler recently spoke with Wrestling Inc about his plans for the future. He can’t say anything for certain, but Pillman promised that we haven’t seen the last of him in All Elite Wrestling.
All Elite Wrestling is using Pillman as they wish, and he’s okay with that. Brian Pillman, Jr also stated that he’s proud of the work he’s done on AEW Dark, but sooner or later he’ll end up on Dynamite.
I can’t say for certain what exactly is in the works but I’ve been hinted that there’s plans to work with me some more. We’ll just have to stay tuned and see what’s going on. I can’t speak of any details but as far as them using me, they’re happy to use me right now even though I’m signed with MLW. They’re happy to put me on Dark and maybe Dynamite in the future. I’m totally proud of Dark and proud of that product. I think it’s a great place for a guy like me to come in and break the ice a bit and get my feet wet with the product. Sooner or later you’ll see me on Dynamite.”
Brian Pillman Jr made a name for himself on the indies, and he’s tried hard to wrestle outside of his father’s shadow. His famous last name might have gotten his foot in the door, but he wouldn’t have made it to AEW without a lot of very hard work.
