Wardlow is a dominant, powerful wrestler in AEW who also isn’t shy when it comes to the ladies.
The AEW TNT Champion Wardlow has been All Elite from the company’s first year in 2019, but he didn’t actually “earn” a contract until he defeated his former boss Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Double or Nothing 2022.
Ever since getting his freedom, Wardlow has been a dominant force in AEW after winning the TNT Championship from Scorpio Sky on July 6th.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Wardlow was asked about who from AEW could make a good horror villain. When he had a tough time giving an answer, he was asked if he had seen the popular Netflix show You:
“I have girls chained up in my bedroom, but no one in my basement.”
The interview took place prior to Wardlow’s successful win over Matt Taven in the main event of the October 28th episode of Rampage as Wardlow talked about how he prepares for a big match.
“The night before, I do usually spend with a beautiful woman to keep my mind off of things and I wake up in the proper headspace. I’m thinking about everything other than my opponent, essentially. I do some serious training. I’m always doing serious training. When people ask me, ‘How do you prep for this match?’ I prep for the biggest match of my life every week of my life. That’s why I am who I am and why I’ll be where I’m going.”
Wardlow also made it clear that he’s a big breakfast guy.
“I live a little differently. I treat every gym session like I’m preparing for the biggest pay-per-view title match of my life. That’s what is going to get me to that moment. Usually, the night before, I like to have a good dinner, be with a beautiful woman, wake up clear-minded, and I’m about to eat the biggest breakfast. I eat a monster breakfast on the day of a show. Then I’m going to eat Matt Taven alive. It’s just another match. We know how this goes. You know what you’re getting with Wardlow. I’m going to beat the shit out of him, powerbomb him multiple times, and I’m going to win. If Mike (Bennett) and his little girlfriend [Maria Kanellis] want to get involved, I’ll take them too.”
When he was told that Maria is married to Mike Bennet, Wardlow remarked: “Wouldn’t be the first woman with a ring.”
Clearly, the TNT Champion is confident inside and outside the ring.
