• AEW Star Thought Vince McMahon Was Going To Tell Him “You’re My Guy”
During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, AEW wrestler Wardlow talked about his WWE tryout and being rejected.
Wardlow noted that he thought Vince McMahon would like his look and make him a top star in the company.
Below is what he said:
“I always believed I was going to walk in WWE’s front doors and they were going to go, ‘what took you so long? Get over here’.
So you know, I don’t want to sound cocky, I’m very confident that I was confident years ago and it didn’t happen. You know, but I still feel like a certain individual in that company would look at me and go, ‘you’re my guy’.
So I’m not surprised, I feel like I’m right up their ally of what their cookie-cutter wrestler would be. But hey, they had their shot.”
Reports recently came out that WWE would be interested in signing Wardlow once his AEW contract expires.
However, on the same day, Wardlow noted during an interview that he’s All Elite for life.
