AEW has added another full-time member to their roster as the company continues on hit the road after over a year at Daily’s Place. It was previously confirmed that Brian Pillman Jr. is no longer with MLW and he’s with AEW full time. His tag team partner has now joined him.
According to a report from Fightful Select, Brian Pillman Jr. and his tag team partner Griff Garrison have both signed full-time deals with AEW. Garrison’s contract was just recently confirmed after news of Pillman’s contract came out.
It’s no surprise within AEW that the company signed both members of the Varsity Blondes to full time deals. The tag team has been heavily featured on AEW’s Dark programs and they have also appeared on Dynamite several times.
As of this writing, there is no word on Julia Hart’s contract status. She has led the Varsity Blondes to the ring in recent memory and the trio have started performing with each other on indie dates as well.
Both Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison were on “tiered deals” prior to getting a bump up to full-time status. Now they are with AEW full time which means fans are likely to see a lot more of them in the future.
