Wardlow Opens Up About Advice Cash Wheeler Gave Him Before TNT Title Win AEW

Wardlow has revealed the advice that Cash Wheeler gave him ahead of his TNT Championship match on Wednesday’s (July 6) episode of Dynamite.

In the opening match of the show, Wardlow pinned Scorpio Sky to win the TNT Title.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Wardlow noted that Cash Wheeler reminded him to enjoy the moment shortly before the bout.

Noting that Wheeler and Dax Harwood often look out for him, Wardlow said:

“I’m normally extremely nervous, on edge and I guess focused, like tunnel vision type focused and before the match, I was actually much more calm than usual. I don’t know why. Cash (Wheeler) gave me a pretty nice pep talk right before. So that might’ve helped calm my nerves.

“Cash and Dax are always helping me out, those guys are phenomenal. So I think Cash kind of got in my head a little bit, and just reminded me to breathe, have fun and enjoy the moment, and really just absorb it. He was like ‘Tonight could be one of those nights that you want to remember forever. So make sure you go and absorb it so you can remember it.’

“And I really tried to do that, and I feel like I did do that. And oddly enough, it was the most comfortable I’ve felt in the ring. The only other time I can recall this happening was with CM Punk. It was kind of the same experience.

“That match and this match are the only two times that I’ve just looked around the crowd, and really just looked at people and interacted with people and absorbed the moment, and really have fun in the match. Other than getting kicked directly in the balls, it was a lot of fun.”

Wardlow’s TNT Title win marked the 14th time that an AEW championship has changed hands this year. Check out a list of every AEW title change of 2022 at this link.
