Konnan wasn’t a big fan of how AEW booked Brian Pillman Jr. in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Speaking on a recent edition of his “Keepin’ It 100” podcast, the AAA booker said,
“He is a bright guy. They made him out to be the biggest dumbf*** on AEW … And you’re being insulted in your hometown and made to look like a cuck. Remember when he stood in front of him [MJF] and he dared him to do something and he didn’t? … How is this in any way helping this guy?”
For those who may not recall, the segment involved Pillman Jr. and MJF going back-and-forth in a promo battle which involved Pillman Jr’s family. You can check out a full video of the segment below.
MJF later faced and beat Pillman Jr. in a singles match on AEW Dynamite two weeks later.
Brian Pillman Jr. is now going by Lexis King in WWE NXT.
