The wrestling world is abuzz with the latest news that has the potential to shake up the landscape of professional wrestling. A former All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star is believed to have inked a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), one of the most prominent wrestling promotions globally.
Brian Pillman Jr.’s Journey to WWE
Brian Pillman Jr., a name that resonates with wrestling enthusiasts due to his lineage and his recent stint with AEW, is the star in question.
Last month, Pillman’s contract with AEW came to an end. Not long after his departure, eagle-eyed fans spotted him at the WWE Performance Center, fueling speculations about his next move.
The rumours didn’t stop there. Reports from Cassidy Haynes at BodySlam suggested that Pillman had a tryout with WWE, and the indications are strong that he might be on his way to joining the company.
While his presence at a taping doesn’t guarantee an appearance on a WWE show, insiders believe and reported back to PWInsider that after his successful tryout, he has signed a contract with WWE.
Other Notable Signings and Returns
Pillman’s potential signing isn’t the only move that has caught the attention of wrestling fans. Former NXT Women’s Champion, Kairi Sane, is also rumoured to be making her way back to WWE.
Additionally, Carlito, a former Superstar, has reportedly re-signed with the company, although he hasn’t made his return yet.
The Impact of Such Moves
The implications of such signings are vast. WWE, with its global reach and massive fan base, offers wrestlers a platform like no other. For Brian Pillman Jr., this could be an opportunity to further his legacy and carve out a unique path in the wrestling world.
His potential move to WWE might also open doors for other AEW stars in the future, blurring the lines between the two promotions and leading to more exciting matchups and storylines for fans.
