WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg believes AEW has given Wardlow “the jabroni title” with the TNT Championship.
“Road Dogg” Brian James has been vocal about his criticisms of All Elite Wrestling as of late.
Speaking with Dr. Chris Featherstone on Sportskeeda Wrestling, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed Wardlow’s booking during his TNT Championship Match against Orange Cassidy last Wednesday.
“I wasn’t a fan. It took him 18 minutes. First they give him the jabroni title. It doesn’t mean nothing when he was a guy that seemed like he was The guy, and maybe he is in the future. I just don’t think you needed to give him that other than the best title and then it took him 18 minutes to beat the jokey guy.”
“I didn’t understand it at all. It was literally booking 101. You put your big huge, beautiful baby face against this other beautiful babyface with a gang of guys out there, like, what are we trying to do here? What are you trying to do in this segment? What story are we telling? Is it just a good win for Wardlow? Okay, six minutes. Kick me, kick me, kick me, go for the superkick, and I powerbomb the crap out of you.”
Road Dogg also gave his advice for All Elite Wrestling, saying:
“I would talk to them about television wrestling and what we’re doing here. When you watch it, it looks like an indie show that somebody filmed with some nice cameras. People will win their match, get their hand raised, and just turn around and start walking away. It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s a great shot. Thank you, dude, who just won the match and now you give me your a-crack and your back to look at.’ You have to think about this like it’s a television show because it is.”
The TNT Championship has been under heavy criticism from AEW and non-AEW talent since the Scorpio Sky vs. Sammy Guevara feud.
As previously noted, AEW star Billy Gunn has pushed for the company to hire his former New Age Outlaw partner for a backstage role.
