A former AEW star has reportedly officially signed for WWE this week, joining the NXT brand at the Performance Center.
“Pillman took part in a tryout last month in Orlando. He finished out his independent appearances earlier this month with a loss to then-NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Kerry Morton in Charlotte, NC at the Gathering IV. After that bout, Morton praised Pillman on the mic, pointing out that he was about to move onto ‘bigger ballfields.’ PWInsider.com is told that currently there is “no rush” to debut Pillman Jr., 29, on television as the initial plan is to get Pillman into the PC system and allow him to get his feet under him” Mike Johnson wrote on the site.
Brian Pillman Jr Officially Signs with WWE
We’re currently waiting to hear when the company is likely to bring Pillman to television, but this is a great signing for both parties as Brian was showing a ton of promise in AEW just a few months ago.
