Wardlow has been one of the best things about AEW in the last few months, and it was a slow and gradual path. Mr. Mayhem organically got over with fans, and the rest is history. AEW was also blasted for damaging Wardlow.
Wardlow eventually won the TNT Championship after defeating Scorpio Sky for it. Since then, he has been a fighting champion. Wardlow also put his title on the line against Orange Cassidy on last week’s AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest.
Wardlow would successfully retain his title, in a match that was well received by fans. While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette blasted for damaging Wardlow by having him face Orange Cassidy.
“I don’t even want to talk to anybody about the first segment of the show except one person. The person that was most harmed, most offended, most damaged, by the segment that opened Dynamite this past Wednesday night, July 13th. They actually booked Wardlow against the company mascot, our little dog ‘Pockets’ and I’m not going to talk about the match because it wasn’t a match, it was a mast****tory, self-indulgent fantasy by the puddin’ gang.
Wardlow also really wants to team up with Jeff Hardy in AEW eventually. We will have to wait and see how Wardlow will be booked as the TNT Champion in the coming weeks.
