AEW star Wardlow has seen a huge push in recent weeks and will be going on to face MJF at the AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view event.
During a recent interview with CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, Wardlow commented on the original plans for his gimmick and why they’ve essentially stayed the same. He said,
“The original plans for my character essentially, still what they are, with just a little altered with the Max thing. It’s still, Wardlow is Wardlow. He’s Ric Flair meets James Bond meets John Wick. Wardlow is always going to be dressed nice, always in a suit, always with a beautiful lady on his arm and whooping ass. That’s what you always expect from Wardlow. Essentially, that’s where we’re at, we just gave Wardlow the role of the bodyguard protecting Max.”
When Wardlow was asked about his original debut video from 2019 and the injuries on his shoulder at the time, he said,
“Those were injuries acquired from all of my parking lot fighting. Those were fresh wounds from the date from the night before and the fight the night before.”
