Since joining back in 2019 the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner has teamed up with former heavyweight champion Tom Lawlor, joining his “Team Filthy” faction and causing chaos throughout the federation’s divisions.
The report also mentions how Garrini reached out to AEW prior to signing with MLW in order to weigh his options. BJ Whitmer, an employee at AEW, advised that Garrini go to MLW and assess where his career was after three years, an option he ended up choosing.
