• AEW Wrestler Has Reached Out To “Stone Cold” Steve Austin To Join The Company
During a recent edition of the AEW Unrestricted podcast, AEW wrestler Brian Pillman Jr. revealed that he reached out to WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin regarding a role in All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what Pillman Jr. said:
“I’ve attempted to reach out to Steve a couple of times. I haven’t heard back yet. My ultimate ploy is that he would be our coach.
He would come out of the curtain in a tracksuit and a whistle. He’s making us do drills before the match like a Drill Sergeant. We would always be ready. We would always be warmed up.
We would have a mean angry coach to rile us up and then we wouldn’t fail because we would know that if we lost the match, we were going to get reamed at.
I think he would be a good motivator for us and he would help us get our act together.”
Brian Pillman Jr. is a part of a tag team in AEW called “The Varsity Blondes”. It should be noted that Brian Pillman (Pillman Jr.’s father) and Steve Austin were tag team partners back in the day.
