AEW’s roster is full of talented wrestlers, consisting of both veterans and the younger generation of talents. This includes Wardlow, who has been a force to be reckoned with since his debut in AEW back in 2020.
After his debut in AEW, Wardlow has always been paired up with MJF, as he is his bodyguard and enforcer. There is no doubt Wardlow has a lot of talent and for the past few months, the company has been teasing Wardlow eventually turning on MJF.
Wardlow made headlines as news broke that WWE would be interested in signing him when his AEW contract expires. While speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Wardlow was asked bout the rumors of WWE wanting to sign him.
Wardlow revealed that he always believed he would be a success in WWE and hinted at being the exact kind of pro wrestler that Vince McMahon wants. Despite that, he claimed that WWE already had their shot at trying to sign him.
“Like I said, I always genuinely felt that I was going to walk in WWE’s front doors and they were going to go ‘What took you so long? Get over here.’ I have no desire to sound cocky but I was confident years ago and it didn’t happen but I still feel like a certain individual in that company would look at me and go ‘You’re my guy’ so I wouldn’t say I’m surprised. I feel like I am right up their alley of what they’re cookie-cutter wrestler would be but hey, they had their shot.”
It is also likely Wardlow and MJF’s split will be coming very soon, as the company has been building towards a feud between the two in the future as well.
