During a recent chat with Sportskeeda, Jim Ross reflected on All Elite Wrestling's young roster and picked out Wardlow as someone who could be the promotion's "next big thing."
"It's heavy on wrestling and I love that. Maybe it's my age or what have you been... I like comedy but I like comedy done by people who are good at it. Our guys came here to wrestle and I'm glad that that's what we do and do very well. I'm so proud of these kids. The mix of all these guys, Sammy Guevara, MJF, all these guys... Jungle Boy, Wardlow," JR said.
"I look at Wardlow and I go back every generation I've been in, seventies onward, there's not a booker that I ever worked for who would not have embraced and loved having Wardlow on the roster. I believe it's not where Tony Khan sits, that's not the way I work but in my opinion, Wardlow could be our next big thing here. Great attitude, smart, polite, has integrity, character."
The War Dog has only wrestled sporadically since joining AEW, but he has often featured in high profile matches like the Steel Cage match against Cody Rhodes and Blood & Guts. He has another big match on the horizon too and he will team with his fellow Pinnacle members against The Inner Circle in a Stadium Stampede match at Double Or Nothing.
