Brian Pillman Jr. Personal Life and Career

Brian Pillman Jr. is the son of Brian Pillman Sr.,  a famous wrestler, and model Melanie Pillman. Brian made his strong image in the independent wrestling scene while he was with MLW (Major League Wrestling). He first showed up in AEW in May 2019 during the Double or Nothing pay-per-view event. Later, he signed a full-time contract with AEW in July 2021.
