AEW adds eight-man tag match to Thursday's Dynamite

Brian Pillman Jr. will make his in-ring AEW Dynamite debut Thursday as part of an eight-man tag team match.

He will join regular Dark partner Griff Garrison, Joey Janela and Sonny Kiss to take on The Butcher & The Blade and the Lucha Bros in a match announced Thursday afternoon.

Since MLW has gone on hold due to the pandemic, Pillman Jr. has worked four matches on Dark since July, going 0-4. 

Butcher, Blade and the Lucha Bros have been a regular four-man unit since July, going 3-1 with their lone loss coming at the hands of Jurassic Express and the Natural Nightmares. They will be accompanied by Eddie Kingston who aligned himself with the group in an in-ring promo after that loss.

The match joins a lineup that includes a tables match between Matt Hardy and Sammy Guevara; a tag team gauntlet match featuring The Natural Nightmares, Young Bucks, Best Friends, and FTR with the winners getting a AEW Tag Team title shot at All Out; Big Swole vs. Britt Baker, Rebel, and Penelope Ford in a handicap match; and a TNT title celebration by new champion Mr. Brodie Lee.
