The Varsity Blonds officially sign with AEW


Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison of the Varsity Blondes have officially signed with All Elite Wrestling.

AEW confirmed both Pillman and Garrison had signed this afternoon on social media. Both team regularly together as the Varsity Blonds, with Julia Hart (no relation to the Hart wrestling family) serving as their manager. Fightful had reported earlier in the day that both were to be signed to full term deals, and that Pillman was finishing up with MLW “very soon”.

Both Garrison and Pillman had wrestled regularly for AEW during the pandemic. Garrison started to appear for AEW in June of last year, with Pillman making appearances the following month. Both were put together starting in September and have since adopted the name Varsity Blondes.

Pillman has been wrestling since 2017, signing with MLW the following year. Garrison, who started wrestling in 2016, previously made appearances for Ring of Honor as one half of The Master and The Machine, with Marcus Kross as his tag team partner.
