The Varsity Blonds are All Elite.
Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison are officially signed with AEW. The tag team duo has officially signed to All Elite Wrestling after being a huge part of the promotion through the pandemic. Pillman had shared the news earlier on Instagram.
Pillman, prior to AEW was signed to Major League Wrestling, where he was paired with Teddy Hart and Davey Boy Smith. Fightful Select reported that Pillman was simply waiting for his MLW deal to expire before putting pen to paper for AEW.
Another AEW Name Officially Signs With The Company Full-Time
Fightful reported this past weekend that Brian Pillman would be full-time with AEW after his MLW deal had ended, but he's not the only one. AEW sources have confirmed that Griff Garrison has also signed a full-time contract with All Elite Wrestling. The move was expected by most within the company, but one person high up in AEW told us they wanted to do their best to match up the full-time deals as far as dates go. Both Pillman and Garrison were on tiered deals prior, but it was considered a foregone conclusion they'd both get full-time contracts
Garrison had previously stated he had signed a deal and now, it's official.
Blonds might have more fun, but it’s no more fun and games for the Blonds! We’ve got ONE THING on our minds and that is maintaining a spot as the top ranked tag team in the company and ultimately challenging, yet again, for the AEW TAG TEAM TITLES!!! -------------- https://t.co/KL57cbDtLH— Brian Pillman Jr. (@FlyinBrianJr) July 12, 2021
