Th Cleveland native also took part in the Face Of The Revolution Ladder match at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view. He had a tremendous performance in the match and went on to win it as well. Thus, he earned the right to challenge for the TNT Championship.
While speaking on the Bleav in Pro Wrestling podcast, Wardlow talked about his performance in the Face Of The Revolution Ladder match. Wardlow stated that AEW Revolution was the best night of his life.
“When I say that was the best night of my life, I truly mean it. I mean the moment of grabbing that ring and putting it over my head at the end of that ladder match, hearing that crowd, and then hearing them again in the moment of placing that ring. When I turned around and I was walking up the ramp and I heard behind me the entire arena chanting my name, best moment of my life. I mean, I’ve been dreaming of that moment since I was in elementary school. I knew it would be a big moment, I just didn’t comprehend it would be received that well.”
Wardlow will be challenging Scorpio Sky for the TNT Championship on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We’ll have to see if Mr. Mayhem will be able to win the title or not as MJF could certainly cost him the match as well.
