Wardlow made an immediate impact on AEW Dynamite when he attacked Cody and aligned himself with MJF. Aside from a setback against Cody in a cage match, Wardlow has run through the competition on AEW Dynamite.
And if you're wondering where he came from, Cody revealed the answer during a recent Q&A session on Instagram.
"Wardlow, all of a sudden, is on everyone's radar. That's great. Questionable company with MJF, but all of a sudden we didn't have a lot of large guys and now we have these monsters with Luchasaurus, Lance Archer, Mr. Brodie Lee and someone like Wardlow. The sky is the limit with Wardlow. You can all thank Britt Baker for Wardlow. She sent him to QT Marshall at the Nightmare Factory and that is where the relationship began with him in AEW. He's in that muscle role, if I was MJF, I would be worried about treating someone like that like a lackey. He's an absolute killer. Big things on the horizon," he said.
Wardlow has stayed active during the empty arena shows, going 3-0 on AEW Dynamite as MJF heals up from his devastating series of injuries. MJF is expected back on television this Wednesday on Dynamite.
