DDP says Cody Rhodes match showed AEW star would be big

AEW Star Wardlow has had two very important matches in his career so far, one against MJF at Double or Nothing, and one against Cody Rhodes in a steel cage on “Dynamite.”

During DDP Snake Pit, Master of the Diamond Cutter and WWE Hall of Famer DDP discussed Wardlow’s match against Cody Rhodes.

“Cody told me that match he had with Wardlow, the first one, when I say Wardlow – wow that kid stepped up,” DDP said. “I knew he was going to be where he was today…He knew how to take his time like it was something instinctive, and he learned as he went…Cody told me they don’t didn’t talk to each other at all. Like what?”

Rhodes ultimately won the match, but many were impressed with Wardlow’s performance that night. Since the match against Rhodes, Wardlow won the Face of the Revolution match at Revolution 2022, defeating Keith Lee, Powerhouse Hobbs, Orange Cassidy, Ricky Starks and Christian Cage, but he failed to win the TNT Championship afterwards. .

Wardlow gained more and more popularity after MJF’s on-screen treatment of Mr. Mayhem, pushing him to a point where Wardlow could take no more from MJF and turned on the man who had him. contracted as muscle. The two had their blistering match at Double or Nothing with a fight that lasted around seven minutes, with Wardlow picking up the win and earning his freedom and ability to sign an AEW contract after hitting the self-proclaimed ‘Salt of the Earth’ with 10 powerbombs in what is called the “Powerbomb Symphony”.

Mr. Mayhem currently has his sights set on the TNT Championship which is held by Scorpio Sky, the man he tried to beat for the championship after his ladder match win. However, Sky is currently struggling with an injury and is currently unable to define the Championship.
