Wardlow has been on a roll for the past few months, largely due to him getting over with fans. Mr. Mayhem has what it takes to make it big in the business and AEW is trying to capitalize on that. Matt Hardy also has a high opinion of Wardlow.
Wardlow defeated MJF in a huge way as he squashed him at AEW Double Or Nothing. Fans are appreciative of Wardlow’s presentation in the company as well now.
While speaking to “Drinks With Johnny,” Matt Hardy talked about pro wrestling not being as mainstream as it used to be. Hardy stated that he believes Wardlow could make AEW more mainstream.
“I feel like Wardlow’s is a guy that might have that possibility here in AEW. I think he’s very special, he’s a good-looking dude, chicks love him, he’s super athletic and talented. You have a guy like that and hopefully, that does elevate the view of a company and kind of their status where they can grow and become more mainstream or whatever.”
Wardlow defeated 20 men on this past week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. He is currently on a mission to win the TNT Championship, so we’ll have to see whether that will happen or not.
