Well that’s….unique. Wrestlers are best known for what they do in the ring but there is a completely different side to what they do. While the in-ring work is important, the ability to talk people into watching the show might be the most important thing of all. As a result, wrestlers are going to do a lot of talking a lot of the time and now a prominent star said something rather eye catching.
AEW TNT Champion Wardlow appeared on Busted Open Radio this week and discussed how wrestlers are similar to horror movie and television series characters, in that they have characters, gimmicks and a theme song. In particular, Wardlow spoke about the Joe Goldberg character from the “You” TV series, saying he did not know why you would chain people up in your basement. Wardlow then said “I have girls chained up in my bedroom, but no one in my basement”. Wardlow successfully defended the TNT Title against Matt Taven this week on AEW Rampage.
Opinion: Well that’s certainly a statement that is going to get some attention. Wardlow is someone who could break through into being a huge star for AEW if he is given the chance and has already come a very long way in his AEW run. What matters is that he is mostly a homegrown star for the company and if they can keep him around, he could absolutely be a major AEW success story.
What do you think of Wardlow? How far can he go in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
