Griff Garrison Explains The 'Who The F*ck Is Griff Garrison?' Bit

Who the fuck is Griff Garrison?

That's what Brodie Lee wanted to know on Being The Elite when Garrison was mentioned. It turned into one of the top bits on BTE before Garrison was part of one of the top ranked tag teams on AEW television.

Speaking to Lucha Libre Online (transcription via Luis Pulido), Garrison discussed the origin of the bit.

"Originally, I was approached by Sammy Guevara to do a skit for his blog, with him confusing me with Jungle Boy and that whole skit where Marko punched Jungle Boy because he thought it was me. Then, I think John Silver was around the corner and kind of saw us doing that blog and he approached me “Hey, me and Brodie have this idea. I am going to sit you on this chair and we going to, pretty much, pretend that you are Jungle Boy again and we will spin you on the chair and say “That’s not jungle Boy, that’s Griff Garrison”. And then John Silver said “Who the Fuck is Griff Garrison?!”, so I have John and Brodie to thank for that pick up line that got me over. That’s kind of how the story went, Sammy asked me to be on his and John overheard and saw what was going on and asked if I wanted to be on BTE, so I have them to thank for that," he said.

Now, Garrison is a well-known name in AEW as part of the Varisty Blonds alongside Brian Pillman Jr.

The Varsity Blonds will compete in a four-way tag team match for a shot at the AEW Tag Team Titles on the May 5 episode of AEW Dynamite, which will be headlined by Blood & Guts. You can view the current lineup for the card by clicking here.
