Shawn Spears Discusses His History With Wardlow, Storyline With MJF



AEW star Shawn Spears will be facing off against Wardlow in a steel cage on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

During a recent appearance on “Busted Open Radio”, Spears commented on his history with Wardlow, his storyline with MJF, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his history with Wardlow: “Here’s my problem. Okay. In the midst of Max feuding with CM Punk, arguably the biggest feud of the year, arguably the biggest feud of the past five years, there was an underbelly story taking place, and that was with Wardlow and myself. That guy went on a tear. That guy started to get very over, the crowd started responding to Wardlow in the most positive way possible. Why do you think that is? If you look at the common denominator, I was by his side, every single second that that was taking place. I was the guy in his ear giving him the advice. One thing Wardlow lacks is experience. The guy is talented, the guy is big, the guy is strong, the guy checks almost every single box in this industry, except one, and they can help right now it’s not his fault. He doesn’t have the experience that I have.

“So I’m the guy in his ear, whispering. I made Wardlow. While everybody was focusing on Max and CM Punk, I was making Wardlow the star that he is. When guys get a certain level, or guys start getting a little bit of popularity, or they start getting a little bit more money or their star rises a little bit, their thought process changes as well. They start thinking that maybe they’re a little too big for the industry. Maybe the industry owes them something. Now, their whole perspective of what they feel is right and wrong changes completely. Wardlow turned around and he bit the hand that fed him. We made him a star and now, he just ups and wants to go on his own way. You want to do your own thing? Go ahead. Go ahead, go do your own thing and see how that works out for you.”

On MJF: “I’m not fighting for Max’s admiration. I’m not siding with Max. Max does not pay me. Max has not paid me. I know the future of the industry when I’ve seen it. I’ve been around for over 20 years. I know guys like that Max and that guy. He is the second guy that I’ve seen in all my 20 years that understands this business. Unlike any other, there’s only one guy in front of him. That’s Cody Rhodes. Those are the only two guys in my 20 years that I’ve seen grass get a hold of this industry and knows exactly where they’re going far sooner than they should. Wardlow is the one that turned his back on us. That’s fine. It’s gonna cost him.”
