Brian Pillman Jr’s life was starting to sound like an old, sad country song. He tweeted that he’d lost his girl, nearly lost his dog, and then his phone was stolen. He said that he’d never felt so empty in his life.

Along with the phone, Pillman lost some precious memories. He said he didn’t have any of the photos backed up. Those lost pics recorded the bulk of his life since he moved to Jacksonville, FL to join AEW. Now, Brian says he’s dealing with the emotions better, thanks to an outpouring of support from his fans. He thanked everybody in tweet this morning.

“I may have lost a lot in a short amount of time. But what I gained yesterday was the most powerful outpouring of love from all of you that I have or probably will ever experience. Coming to terms with the photos. IG story archive has most of my adventures documented.”

Brian was devastated at the horrific string of luck he’d been experiencing. Fortunately, his friends, fans, and fellow wrestlers were there to pick him up. The young star seems to be taking things in stride and approaching everything with a positive attitude.


Now that Brian Pillman Jr. has moved on from those dark times, fans are excited to see what’s coming next. Pillman recently had a high-profile feud with top AEW heel MJF. He’s been quietly waiting for his next opportunity to shine since the storyline ended.

We’re happy to hear that Brian’s doing better. Emotional distress can lead a person to some dark places. Fortunately, the wrestling community came together to help him get through it.
