After competing intermittently under the AEW banner for over a year, Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison officially signed with the company earlier today.
Brian Pillman Jr., the young, mullet adorned generational talent has been wrestling with AEW since July of 2020. An indie darling and natural talent, Pillman has made a name for himself appearing on both AEW Dynamite and AEW Dark, honing his craft.
Griff Garrison, a virtual unknown to most mainstream wrestling fans made his debut last year with AEW. A tall and surprisingly powerful young wrestler, Garrison has proven he belongs in a professional ring.
In July of last year, AEW decided to pair up Pillman and Garrison, forming The Varsity Blonds. After busting their humps on AEW Dark over the past year, and earning numerous appearances on the premier Wednesday night show, the duo was finally rewarded with full time contracts.
The Varsity Blonds have a 16-4 record in 2021 as a tag team and are sitting pretty, ranked number two in the tag team standings. These young, athletic up and comers are here to stay!
