Wardlow didn’t take long to make an impact in AEW and became one of the most over stars in the company last year. He even held onto the TNT Championship for an extended duration before dropping it a couple of times. That said, now it appears Arn Anderson believes Wardlow was misguided in AEW.

While Wardlow was AEW’s hottest act last year, the company failed to capitalize on it during his first reign as the TNT Champion due to a series of improperly booked feuds and matches.

It did not help that Wardlow played hot potato with the TNT Championship in his feud with Samoa Joe and Powerhouse Hobbs. AEW decided to have Arn Anderson align himself with Wardlow following the latter’s third TNT Title win recently.

While speaking on the ARN Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Arn Anderson talked about working together with Wardlow. Anderson stated that he believes Wardlow has been getting bad advice and guidance in AEW.


“That guy’s got so much potential, so much talent. He’s such a class act. He’s focused. He carries himself like a professional. He does everything right. He’s just been getting some bad advice from day one, bad guidance. In this business, when that locker room sees a guy that’s got unlimited potential, the claws come out. … They try to shut him down before he ever gets rolling in all kinds of political ways and physical ways.”

Wardlow and Goldberg were also involved in confrontation recently. Regardless, we will have to wait and see whether Wardlow and Arn Anderson’s partnership will prove successful in the coming weeks.

What’s your take on what Arn Anderson said? Do you think Wardlow will become a big star again soon? Sound off in the comments!
