You know it's all about the budge.
Adam Cole and John Silver have developed a rivalry on Being The Elite that has spilled over to AEW television. Silver has been annoying Cole on Being The Elite, coming up with different nicknames for him. The nickname "Budge" has stuck, much to Silver's surprise.
"No," Silver said on the Claibs Online podcast when asked if he thought "Budge" would stick. "To be honest, I don't ever know what I say, what's going to work and what's not going to work. There are times where I'm like, 'I killed it, that line is so funny, everyone is going to be talking about it and tweeting about it.' Then, nothing. Then there are times where I'm like, 'Eh, I could have done better on that one, maybe a second take and I come up with better stuff,' and then it just blows up. To be honest, I thought maybe I should have done a second take on that and I could have done different names or more names. People really like Budge. People also like Mufflanagan too, but Budge is definitely the number one choice."
Cole will get his chance to settle the score with Silver on AEW Rampage when the two meet in singles competition.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Rampage beginning at 10 p.m. ET on Friday.
