AEW star Brian Pillman Jr. is frustrated by a recent string of bad luck. The wrestler had his phone stolen out of his pocket on Saturday night. With it, he says he lost countless precious photographic memories.

Pillman first tweeted about the incident on Sunday. He said none of the photos on the phone were backed up. The pictures made up the bulk of his memories since he moved to Jacksonville. He wasn’t using iCloud backup services at the time the phone was taken.

“Got my phone stolen right out of my pocket last night. Really sucked and I lost a bunch of photos that weren’t backed up but I got a new phone at least…

They didn’t just steal my phone but they took away countless memories from my time living in Jacksonville. I got my iPhone when I first moved here and unlike android you don’t just have unlimited cloud space on google.”


Pillman expounded on his poor fortune. He said that in addition to the phone and the memories, he lost his girlfriend and nearly his dog. He’s struggling with the situation emotionally.

“I just lost everything in a matter of a couple days. I am so empty I don’t know what to do.

I lost my phone. I lost my girlfriend. I almost lost my dog and now I have no memories or photos to look back on and reminisce. Over a year of pictures completely gone. My whole time here in Jacksonville feels like it’s been erased from my life.”

Hopefully Brian gets things back on track soon. It’s a lot to process when you lose a loved one and many of the memories associated with them in such a short period. It’s a long shot, but our fingers are all crossed for the safe return of Brian Pillman’s stolen iPhone.
