Marko Stunt was offered an AEW contract on his 23rd birthday. That was quite a gift from The Elite, but not everyone is happy for him.
Gunner Miller, who is an indie wrestler, let loose on Stunt in a scathing Facebook post. He said that Stunt is someone “6 year old him laughs at” and called his signing a slap in the face to real athletes.
When I was 6 I wanted to be a professional wrestler. I idolized the men I saw on TV flipping the channel from Raw to Nitro each Monday night. Men like The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, HHH, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels… Hulk Hogan, Warrior, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Goldberg, Sting… too many men to name..
So then I train hard my entire life(still training).. getting recognized in college by Warrior, getting scouted by Brisco.. jumping into the Wrestling world myself in 2014.. doing all the right things(still doing it).. saying all the right things(eh this might have changed).. rubbing the right elbows(eh maybe pissing some people off).. just wanting a shot at a contract to get my foot in the door and have a PLATFORM to perform..
But in reality… this is what a ‘major’ promotion decides to sign. 5’2 & 115lbs Of Marko Stunt… a guy that 6 year old me laughs at.
Maybe I’m wrong.. but I don’t care.. this is silly as 💩 and a slap in the face (my face) to real athletes.
Be sure to tune into The 60 Minute Broadway LIVE every Thursday night at 8PM! 🤙🏻
Those statements were heard loud and clear and a few people have reacted already. The general consensus is that this was not a good look for Gunner Miller, especially if he had any aspirations of getting on AEW’s radar. They might know him a little better now, but they might not like those comments either.
If you ask Joey Ryan, the world needs more Marko Stunts and less Gunner Millers.
