The Varsity Blondes in Singles Action on AEW Dark

The Varsity Blondes have a lot of momentum going for them right now, both as a tag team as well as singles wrestlers. The addition of Julia Hart to the group has added to the team’s charisma, giving them a Bodydonnas vibe. Last month, they faced The Young Bucks on AEW Dynamite for the AEW Tag Team Championship, and despite losing that much, The Blondes have retained their spot as number one contenders for the titles, helped by a win last night on AEW Dark: Elevation, over the debuting Bums R Us (Ray Beez and Milo Beasley). At the same time, Brian Pillman Jr. is looking forward to facing Miro for the AEW TNT Championship on the June 30 edition of AEW Dynamite. Tonight, The Blondes will be in one-on-one matches when Pillman faces Bear Bronson, while Griff Garrison takes on Mark Stunt!

Trouble in Team Taz

Tension has been brewing for quite a while now in the Team Taz ranks. Last Friday on Dynamite, Taz himself acknowledged there were problems in the group, and said the beef between Brian Cage and Powerhouse Hobbs needs to end now. It seems like only a matter of time before Cage and Hobbs face off, and it’s worth noting that none of the Team Taz members will be in Brian Cage’s corner tonight on Dark when he faces off against Chandler Hopkins.
