Wardlow debuted in AEW back in 2019 and has been a force to be reckoned with since then. Mr. Mayhem gradually became huge fan-favorite as AEW continues to capitalize on his popularity. He also claimed MJF isn’t the devil as well.
The War-dog has been on a roll ever since he won the Face Of The Revolution Ladder match at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view. He then ended up betraying MJF at the same event.
Since then the two have been engaged in an all-out war with each other. While speaking on Buster’s World, Wardlow was asked if he regrets betraying MJF. Wardlow made it clear he does not. Wardlow also claimed that MJF isn’t the devil because he has faced worse.
“No. I think this can actually relate with a lot of people in life, people that hold on to that toxic job or that place that, they wake up every morning, they know they are going to be miserable all day. They know their boss is going to yell at them and treat them like trash, but they keep going back every day. I know it’s scary to take that step, there is comfort there, you have a steady job and steady income, health insurance, whatever benefits come along. it’s scary to push that away and take a different route or take a chance on something else. I’m a big believer in always taking that step. Take that chance. If you’re not 100% happy and thriving, you have to take that chance and go out on your own. That’s what I’m doing with Max.
I know he’s trying to make my life hell. I’m sure we’ve barely scratched the surface. I know how this man operates. I don’t regret it at all. I don’t care if he drives me insane. I know this is the right choice for me. Max calls himself the devil, he’s not. I’ve been through much worse in life than Maxwell Jacob Friedman. I’ve looked the devil in the eye and here I am. There is nothing Max can throw at me that can slow me down.”
Wardlow is set to square off against Lance Archer on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. There is no doubt MJF will be watching closely, as their feud is far from over.
