Wardlow Reveals What He Can Improve On In AEW – “Politics”


Wardlow is not happy about being behind the “whining crybabies” ahead of him for a shot at MJF.

Wardlow was on top of the world heading into Double Or Nothing 2022 when he finally was set to get his hands on MJF with the entire AEW fanbase behind him. However, things started to go awry before the show with rumours circulating that MJF could well be considering no-showing the event.

In the end, MJF did turn up but might have wished he hadn’t as Wardlow took him apart and left him laying in a beating that fans have not seen MJF receive before or since. But despite that, MJF is the one with AEW World Championship gold and Wardlow has never received a shot at him for that title.

Speaking to DAE On Demand, Wardlow was asked about going after MJF and the AEW World Championship considering their history together and the fact he hasn’t yet got a shot at his old boss’ title has not gone unnoticed and neither has a certain someone walking around calling themselves the real world champion:

“You would think so, but apparently, there are a lot of whining crybabies that are ahead of me. Let’s face the facts, as long as MJF has the title, I’ll probably never be in the picture as long as he has anything to do with it. He knows, as everyone knows, I murdered him when we wrestled.

“I am the one guy in the company that has beat our champion. Not only beat our champion, but squashed our champion. There is another guy running around calling him the champion and I’m pretty sure I beat the brakes off him as well.”

Wardlow named one thing he needs to work on in wrestling

Wardlow was then asked what he thinks he needs to improve on in wrestling and his answer spoke volumes about how he feels about MJF:

“Politics. As long as MJF is at the top, he’s going to do everything he can to keep me at the bottom.”

Wardlow last competed in an AEW ring back on the premiere edition of Collision on June 17th when he lost the TNT Championship to Luchasaurus. The star will no doubt hope to be figured into plans again when AEW brings All In to Wembley Stadium on August 27th.
