Ever since Wardlow made his AEW debut back in 2019, he was booked as an indomitable force in the company. Introduced as MJF’s bodyguard, Wardlow slowly became a fan-favorite thanks to his personality and charisma. AEW also got criticized for how they booked Wardlow recently.
The Ward-dog betrayed MJF back at AEW Revolution and cost him the Dog Collar match against CM Punk. Since then, MJF and Wardlow have been feuding on AEW television.
As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Wardlow was restrained by security when he tried to get to MJF. While speaking on his podcast The Experience, Jim Cornette criticized AEW for making Wardlow look weak and essentially buying him in the segment.
“They could have done this right and been accused of copying Brock Lesnar but it still would have been done right, or they could have done this exactly like this and buried Wardlow as a goof which is what they did. You don’t immobilize a guy like that, if you have the security there they should have been fodder for him to destroy and throw around while MJF made his escape, and even got to Shawn Spears, MJF needed to be the one to make the escape.
Yes of course they are doing the same thing on the other channel, well here is an idea; just don’t do the same thing they’re doing on the other channel. Or if you really have to do it, then do not make your guy look so much worse than the other channel’s guy. Wardlow’s a d****** with his d*** in his hand after this.”
For the record, Wardlow also invited Brock Lesnar to face him in AEW. We’ll have to see how his feud with MJF will be booked from now on.
