Brian Pillman Jr. Vignette Airs on NXT – The September 26th episode of NXT left fans intrigued with a mysterious vignette that aired during the show. In this enigmatic clip, a figure sat in a dimly lit room, tuning in to watch television. The television screen displayed quick flashes of Cincinnati Bengals footage and the opening sequence of WCW Saturday Night before abruptly ending.
This vignette appears to be a nod to the late Brian Pillman, who had been a part of the Hollywood Blondes tag team alongside Steve Austin in WCW. Notably, Pillman also had a brief stint in the NFL as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. The cleverly crafted teaser seemed to be a reference to the imminent debut of his son, Brian Pillman Jr.
Brian Pillman Jr. was reportedly signed with WWE and had begun training at the WWE Performance Center. While Pillman Jr.’s signing had been circulating in wrestling circles, WWE had yet to officially confirm the agreement.
Brian Pillman Jr. has been making waves in the wrestling world since he began his wrestling journey in 2017. He gained further recognition with his appearances in AEW starting in 2019, often teaming up with Griff Garrison as The Varsity Blonds—a tribute to his father’s famous Hollywood Blonds tag team with Steve Austin. Pillman Jr.’s contract with AEW expired in July, with his last match alongside Brock Anderson against The Gunns taking place in May at a house show.
As the mysterious vignette continues to spark curiosity, fans eagerly await further developments regarding Brian Pillman Jr.’s official debut in NXT and what role he will play in continuing his family’s legacy in the world of professional wrestling.
