Although Brian Pillman Jr. is under contract with MLW, he hasn’t worked matches for the promotion since COVID-19 pandemic began as they haven’t held any shows.
During this time, he has worked a few matches for AEW and is slated to make his OVW debut. Aside from WWE, his MLW deal allows him to work for any other promotion in addition to his remaining MLW dates as long as there’s not a conflict.
Pillman noted that he hasn’t heard from MLW in a while and they don’t answer his calls. He stated that he thinks there are no hard feelings between them.
“I think my contract restricts WWE and NXT and that’s it. They know that I know what I’m not allowed to do and sooner or later I’m sure we’ll try to come to an agreement where MLW can release me.”
He stated that there’s not a guarantee on any MLW shows happening and it’s just business on his end as he loves MLW.
“Yes. If I’m fully transparent since about June 1 I’ve been actively trying to request my release and free myself of the obligations of MLW,” revealed Pillman. “Again, no hard feelings but they have obligations towards me too. They have to have so many shows take place in order for my end of the contract to be valid too.
So, I think that would also free them up of some responsibility. I think it would be a win-win situation if they released me. Everybody’s gotta a different opinion on what’s a win-win situation.”
