Today is a special day for Brian Pillman, Jr. The second generation pro wrestler turns 27 years old today, and this was a pretty great birthday for him as well.
Pillman, Jr got on Twitter to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. Then he revealed that AEW gave him the greatest gift of all: wrestling. Pillman said that he will be wrestling in Daily’s Place tonight for AEW.
Blown away by all the love from everybody today on my 27th Birthday! I don’t usually ask for much, but I’ve been gifted the opportunity to wrestle in an AEW ring on my birthday which is perhaps the best gift anyone could ask for!!!
Brian Pillman, Jr said that he’s uncertain if his match will be on Dynamite or AEW Dark. The important part for him is that he gets to apply his craft in the ring and continue living his dreams.
Pillman was announced for MLW’s return. He is still under contract with the company, but AEW can use him. There is a loophole since AEW wasn’t mentioned as being off limits in the MLW contract that Pillman signed since the company didn’t exist yet.
