Brian Pillman Jr, son of the legendary Brian Pillman, was in attendance at this week’s AEW Fyter Fest taping.
Pillman Jr was spotted in the crowd on numerous occasions, and even tweeted a picture of himself on the stage before the live show began.
The crowd usually contains wrestlers who either aren’t competing on that week’s tapings or are on Dark, and this could be the case for Pillman.
A picture has circulated of Pillman backstage chatting with Chris Jericho, with the second-generation star wearing his wrestling gear.
This could be any number of reasons including getting promo shots, a proper “dark” match or a contest for their Dark taping – which matches have not yet been confirmed for this week.
Pillman was the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookie Of The Year in 2019, and is another surname which could be seen to have value for AEW.
