Mark Henry, one of the strongest wrestlers in the world and a former champion, believes that Wardlow is one of the best.
In an Interview: AEW announcer was asked how Wardlow become unstoppable and responded that he would win in a best of 3 series by default.
“I think Wardlow is an amazing competitor, and he’s going to get even better. The Wardlow we see right now could have maybe been beaten by a Mark Henry in the “best of three,” but in the next two years, Wardlow will be the most dominant force in pro wrestling since Brock Lesnar, since Goldberg, since The Rock, since Steve Austin. And once he becomes just as good as those competitors, then you better bet that he’ll beat them three rounds out of three.”
Wardlow has been noticeably dominant over competitors in the last three months. He is 9-0 in his last matches and won the TNT Championship over Scorpio Sky on July 6th. Wardlow is also undefeated and defended his championship a week later against Orange Cassidy.
Wardlow’s next contender isn’t known at this time, but on Friday he defeated Jay Lethal and Satnam Singh after a brawl on AEW Rampage. Lethal takes on Cassidy in a match with Title implications, scheduled for Wednesday.
