• AEW Star Wardlow On Why He Has Started To Watch WWE As Of Late
Wardlow had his 1st ever match in AEW in February 2020, where he faced Cody Rhodes in a Steel Cage Match on Dynamite and lost.
During an interview on the Superstar Crossover podcast, Wardlow talked about starting to watch WWE as of late and explained why.
Below are the highlights:
On him starting to watch WWE programming due to Cody Rhodes:
“I mean, I’ll be honest, you know, I mentioned Cody, I feel like him going there has been the reason I’ve kind of watched a little bit because I got into the business late. I really don’t have that many friends.
I don’t have many friends in general, by choice. But I really don’t know that many people over in WWE, so I don’t — there’s nobody I watch on WWE that I’d know personally other than Cody.
So him going back has caused me to watch a few things just to see what he’s doing over there.”
On FTR being mentors to him:
“They are huge mentors of mine. I will be thanking and giving my gratitude to those two men for the rest of my career. Dax is somebody that is very to himself and he doesn’t give out compliments often, but when he sees something in someone, he does offer his knowledge and he has an abundance of it.
Cash and Dax, and even when I was in the Pinnacle before (Shawn) Spears lost his mind, they took me under their wings and taught me so much and continue to this day.”
Wardlow is currently feuding with MJF on AEW TV. They are scheduled to face each other at the Double Or Nothing PPV later this month.
