Davey Bang will soon compete in plenty of multi-man matches for the Warrior Wrestling. However this is going to be one of this most prominent matches that serve for promotional purposes too. If we talk about last month his partner August Matthews competed for a freelance wrestling tag team title. This match happened against The Take It Home Wreckers (Bucky Colins and Mikey).

“Absolutely, I think I’ve had that pressure since the first day,” Brian Pillman states. “I’ve always been kind of looked at a little bit differently. Even from the first week, in training, people have sort of treated me differently or spoken to me a little bit differently, and I think the pressure wears off the more comfortable I get in the profession.
I think with the amount of traveling and things I’ve done prior to the pandemic and prior to coming to AEW, I really learned a lot on the road. “A lot about myself and stuff, and those long drives, and you’re cutting promos, and you’re kind of finding out who you are and your character. How can, I tribute to my father while also staying true to myself is something that I’ve looked inwards at a lot. I think the more experienced I get, I think the less pressure I have because I know what the goal of wrestling is at the end of the day’’.
