Wardlow made his AEW debut back in 2019 and has been booked as an absolute monster since then. Mr. Mayhem is now one of the highlights of AEW television thanks to his organic growth as a babyface. Goldberg is also honored that Wardlow is being compared to him.
Wardlow has been compared to WWE Hall OF Famer Goldberg on numerous occasions as well. In fact, he has been called a modern-day Goldberg done right in the past.
While speaking with Graham “GSM” Matthews of Bleacher Report, Goldberg talked about the comparisons between himself and Wardlow. Goldberg made it clear he feels it is an honor.
“I understand the comparisons. I’ve heard of him for sure. I’ve seen pictures of him. I haven’t seen him work that much. But, hey, man, more power to him. There needs to be more characters like that. There needs to be serious intensity out there. There’s people that slice meat and there’s people that eat meat and he needs to be eating meat — now Big E is going to come into it. But yeah, man , I don’t know. I’ve never read anything about a comparison from him and how he passes judgment on it. But at the end of the day, anybody that’s close to the top in their prospective business to be compared with myself. That’s an honor and a privilege.”
WWE could also be planning a huge 25th anniversary for Goldberg in September. It remains to be seen whether Goldberg will be back in a couple of months or not.
