WWE Hall Of Famer Says Lexis King Needs To Lose Weight

Brian Pillman Jr. is now wrestling for NXT under the name Lexis King after departing AEW earlier this year, and so far, he is showing his former employers what they are missing by looking like a future star on WWE’s third brand. However, during his podcast, two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T has commented on the second-generation star’s current look, revealing he feels he needs to drop weight and get his jackets tapered.

“I just need him to lose eight pounds just because television makes him look a little bigger in the wrong areas. I’ll work with him on that, make sure you get your jackets tapered and stuff like that. It’s little, bitty things.”

30-year-old Pillman Jr. began training at Lance Storm’s wrestling school in 2017, opening the door for him to wrestle in MLW when still considered a rookie. At the time, MLW contracts allowed their talents to work for AEW simultaneously, and there he worked as an enhancement talent before signing full-time for Tony Khan. Yet, despite establishing himself as both a singles performer and tag team wrestler alongside Griff Garrison and later Brock Anderson, his contract wasn’t renewed when it expired in July.
