Brian Pillman Jr. (son of WWF/WCW Legend Brian Pillman) left AEW last month after his 3-year deal with the company expired, and AEW President Tony Khan decided not to renew it.
Soon after that, he was spotted training at the WWE Performance Center, which began speculation that he would get signed by WWE, and there were also reports of “immediate interest” in Pillman Jr. from WWE’s side.
According to PWInsider, Pillman Jr. is slated to be at this week’s NXT taping. He is believed to have signed with WWE.
During a recent Captain’s Corner virtual signing, Pillman Jr. teased signing with WWE by saying that a huge opportunity is coming up for him soon.
Below is what he said:
“It’s a tough business and it’s a long road to the top if you want to rock n roll.
Being here today and getting to reminisce about some of the past moments of my career has really cheered me up and put me in a position to where I’m excited for the future.
There is a lot to come, I can’t speak on it right now, it’s kind of in the works.
I have a huge moment, a huge opportunity coming up in my career to continue making memories, to continue coming up with new gear ideas and sharing my version of pro wrestling with you all.
Thank you for supporting me.”
