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.
While speaking on the Battleground Podcast, Wardlow talked about how his partnership with MJF started. Wardlow then proceeded to accuse MJF of changing his contract as well.
“Essentially, when AEW started, Max just reached out to me, and basically, long story short was, ‘Hey, I’m about to make a lot of enemies, and I need somebody to watch my back.’ He wrote up a contract, and he said, essentially, he would hire me to, basically, be his bodyguard, or take care of business for him. I agreed to do so. Now, after a couple of years, I don’t think there are too many people that have a tremendous relationship with their boss, and just like any normal job, your boss can get on your nerves and we’ve seen many examples of this. So for now, he signs my paychecks, I’m still under contract with him, and we’ll just see what the future holds.
Max and his lawyers seemingly change this contract. Every time I think something is settled. There’s a new page of the contract that magically appears. So, there are things that are being looked into.”
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. We w have to wait and see when AEW will finally pull the trigger on the feud.
