One of WWE’s latest signings is reportedly set to be at this week’s NXT tapings.

Former AEW star Brian Pillman Jr. left AEW last month when his contract expired. Shortly after his departure, he was spotted training at WWE’s Performance Center.

PWInsider are now reporting that Pillman Jr. is believed to have signed with WWE, and is set to be at the August 8th NXT taping, with the report also noting that his PC appearance was a tryout with the company.

“Brian Pillman Jr. is slated to be at this week’s WWE NXT TV Taping, has confirmed. Pillman Jr. was at the WWE Performance Center last month after his AEW contract expired for a tryout.”


As of writing, it’s unclear as to whether the 29-year-old will be involved in an onscreen capacity, however, his presence suggests that a debut could be imminent.

Brian Pillman Jr. was a reoccurring character on AEW & ROH TV, primarily teaming with Griff Garrison in tag team matches as The Varsity Blondes. Pillman’s last AEW match saw him team with Brock Anderson in a losing effort against The Gunns at AEW House Rules.
