Wardlow Talks MJF Joining Inner Circle, Steel Cage Match With Cody, Being Ready For Big Singles Run

AEW star Wardlow was the latest guest on Hall of Famer Vickie Guerrero’s Excuse Me podcast to talk all things pro-wrestling, including his thoughts on MJF possibly joining the Inner Circle faction. Highlights from the interview can be found below.

On his first AEW match with Cody:

My first match, for those that don’t know, my very first televised match was against Cody Rhodes in the main event, in the first-ever Steel Cage match [in AEW history]. And like you literally couldn’t have put any more pressure on me, but that’s when I thrive. I love pressure, I love that feeling and I’ve known that I was ready for TV for a long time.I still have a lot to work on, but at the end of the day, I was ready for TV, and I’ve always felt ready and prepared. And I think I’m right where I belong.

How he feels about MJF joining The Inner Circle:

As far as my opinion or how I feel about the Inner Circle, I’ve never been one to need a bunch of friends or need to be in a group or whatever. At the end of the day, I’m Max’s guy. Where Max goes, I go. At the end of the day, Chris Jericho’s Chris Jericho. So to be associated with him, I don’t find any negative. I don’t think that there’s any negative that could exist in that situation.

How he craves a singles-run:

I’m starving. I am starving. You know, I have a lot of goals. As far as AEW goes as a whole, there’s a lot I want to accomplish. Now that I have my foot in the door and [MJF] has gotten me some singles competition, it’s most definitely lit a fire in me. And like I said, there are a lot of personal goals I have when you know, if the day comes that Max and I, you know, ever go our separate ways.
