• Son Of WWF Veteran Is Now A Full-Time AEW Wrestler
Brian Pillman Jr., the son of Old School WWF/WCW Veteran ‘The Loose Cannon’ Brian Pillman, has been wrestling for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling as a part-timer since the company started in 2019.
But now it seems like Brian Jr. has left Major League Wrestling (MLW) and will be a 100% full-time performer in AEW from now.
Here’s what Fightful Select reported:
“Brian Pillman Jr. will not be at this week’s Major League Wrestling tapings, and will effectively be a full-time AEW star moving forward.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (July 10, 1988) – NWA The Great American Bash 1988: The Price for Freedom
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 10, 1988, Jim Crockett Promotions aired ‘NWA The Great American Bash 1988: The Price for Freedom’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 4th edition of the annual The Great American Bash events, although the 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours that included several shows with the best matches making it to the official VHS, that made them being presented like 1 big event in both years, even though they weren’t.
There was no Great American Bash in 1993 & 1994, but after WCW was sold to the World Wrestling Federation in 2001, Vince McMahon brought the pay-per-view back in 2004 under the WWE banner.
Below are the results from that night:
NWA World Tag Team Championship: Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard (c) wrestled Nikita Koloff & Sting to a time-limit-draw
NWA United States Tag Team Championship: The Midnight Express defeated The Fantastics (c)
Tower of Doom: The Road Warriors, Jimmy Garvin, Ron Garvin & Steve Williams defeated Al Perez, Ivan Koloff, Kevin Sullivan, Mike Rotunda & The Russian Assassin
NWA United States Heavyweight Championship: Barry Windham (c) defeated Dusty Rhodes
NWA World Heavyweight Championship: Ric Flair (c) defeated Lex Luger
