Wardlow Reveals His Dream Matchup In AEW, Talks Career In AEW So Far, More



AEW wrestler Wardlow was a recent guest on The Zaslow Show on Audacy’s AM 560 Sports WQAM (Miami).

During the interview, the current AEW TNT Champion commented on his career in All Elite Wrestling so far, who he’d like to face next, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On how he grew up loving wrestling: “I have been obsessed with professional wrestling ever since I could remember. There’s a video of me somewhere, before I could even talk, clanging and banging an old junkyard dog and action figure, using the kitchen table chair as my ring. I caught the bug young. My first memory is falling in love with Bret Hart — he’s the one that really started it for me. I just never looked back. I fell in love and it was game over…I’m really mad because I met him at the beginning of my career. I was too nervous to ask for a picture, and I’ll never forget that.”

On how he got his start: “I was in the Indies for a number of years, and it definitely got to the point where you have moments in your career where you’re like, ’Is this going to work? Am I going to make it?’ Everybody goes through that…When you love it as much as most of us do, you’re just going to keep scratching and clawing until you get there…Honestly, it was kind of the perfect storm. There were a few different people mentioning me in a short period of time…”

On being compared to Batista: “I’ve gotten the Bautista comparisons, and there’s no greater compliment because I was a huge Bautista fan as I’m sure you could’ve guessed. Guys that influenced me in my life – Dave Bautista, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – guys when they came out on T.V. would dress nice, and that’s how I’ve always been. I’ve always dressed nice, taking care of myself, I enjoy looking good.”

On Kenny Omega being his dream matchup: “Kenny Omega is very high on that list. Jon Moxley is also at the top of that list. I would say within AEW, it is Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley – I want those two more than anybody. Outside of that, it is the dream match. I always saw Wardlow versus [Brock] Lesnar to be the biggest money match in the history of national T.V.”

On defending the TNT title in his homestate of Ohio last week: “To come out to that crowd in Cleveland as the TNT Champion was such an adrenaline rush like I’ve never experienced in my life. God what an amazing feeling, I wish I could feel that every day…I’m so obsessed with that feeling, that that’s how I know I’m going to continue with those moments.”

On his thoughts on AEW All Out: “I love how we do Pay-Per-View, that’s one of my favorite things about the company. When it’s time for the Pay-Per-View you know it’s going to be a big deal. We only have four throughout the year.”
