Wardlow participated in the inaugural Blood & Guts match on May 5, 2021. He teamed up with The Pinnacle to defeat The Inner Circle. Wardlow recently revealed that he participated in Blood & Guts with an injured calf.

Wardlow recently discussed his exercise routine and how he works out daily to maintain his excellent fitness all year long. He also pushes through injuries as part of his training. Wardlow also said that he competed in AEW Blood & Guts I with a torn calf on Athletes and the Arts.

I’m wrestling year-round with injuries. I got in trouble with Doc [Doc Sampson] one time because I didn’t tell anybody about a torn calf that blew out doing sprints because I was getting prepared for Blood and Guts and I wasn’t going to miss that match for nothing. I hid it and wrestled with a completely torn calf. I have tears in my knee, my shoulders, I’m a mess, but we love it and this is what we do.

Most wrestlers are constantly recovering from injuries since wrestling has no off-season. While some injuries are severe enough to keep a wrestler out of action for several weeks or months, others are minor annoyances that may be healed with rest, relaxation, and rehabilitation.


Wardlow has been on a roll for the past few months, largely due to him getting over with fans. For many observers of AEW, Ward-dog has all the tools to succeed in pro wrestling, including looks, charisma, and in-ring skills. At AEW All Out, Wardlow will take against Jay Lethal and the Motor City Machine Guns with FTR. Stay tuned to Ringside News for the latest news and updates.
