AEW’s Wardlow Teases Splitting From MJF
Mr. Mayhem could be ready to spread his wings
Wardlow is poised to be a big star in AEW if and when the company pulls the trigger on him, and it could possibly come in 2022, as Wardlow himself has teased a split from his abusive business partner MJF.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Wardlow spoke of what he feels 2022 will bring his way:
“I think we’ve got a bigger year coming in ‘22. ‘21 saw Wardlow in high-profile, high-pressure matchups. You don’t see me every week, but when you do see me, it’s usually something special. Now, as we end the year, you have been seeing me a little more and I think we are going to continue seeing more of me. That’s why I say ‘22, I think we have a lot more to come.”
As for his relationship with MJF, Wardlow spoke about his ‘employer’ in a frosty tone:
“MJF and I, we strictly have a business relationship,” he stressed. “That’s all it’s ever been, and that’s all it ever will be. However, that contract isn’t forever. The way he treats people, we will see what the future holds with that.”
If and when Wardlow does break free, he has his eyes set on some gold:
“If you’re in this business, you want the championship. That’s the elite, that’s the top of the mountain is to hold the AEW World Heavyweight Championship. If there’s a TNT Title picture on the way there, excellent. If there’s an opportunity for a Tag Team Title, excellent. I would prefer to, throughout my career, hold every title in this company.”
