According to a new report, a star who recently exited AEW has been spotted at the WWE Performance Center.
Despite being signed to MLW at the time, Brian Pillman, Jr. began appearing in AEW from the company’s beginning, taking part in the Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing in 2019. His contract with MLW allowed him to work on a per-appearance basis for the company until he officially became All Elite in 2021.
The second-generation star aligned with Griff Garrison in 2020, forming the Varsity Blonds. They were eventually joined by Julia Hart, who eventually left the group after being lured into the House of Black. While the faction made sporadic appearance on Dynamite and Rampage, they were mostly relegated to Dark and Dark: Elevation, and Pillman hasn’t wrestled on television since the February 1st episode of Rampage, where he lost to Swerve Strickland.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Brian Pillman Jr.’s contract with AEW had expired, and he was gone from the company. He was also removed from the company’s roster page, and on July 11th, he took to Instagram to tell fans to stay tuned for his next chapter.
Now, according to an update from Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Pillman was seen training at the WWE Performance Center on July 13th. As of this time, there is no further information available as to whether or not the star will end up in WWE.
