For Wardlow, working alongside CM Punk has been a very ‘surreal’ experience, namely because he once believed it to be impossible.
Speaking to The Wrestling Inc. Daily, Wardlow had this to say about sharing the ring with CM Punk:
“Working with CM Punk has truly been surreal. I’ve said it before, you get in the business with your list of people you would love to work with, and CM Punk just didn’t exist on that list because that wasn’t ever an option. That was done and over, no possibility of that happening. So, for it to be real, man, just to work with CM Punk, something you never thought you’d be able to do. So, it is very, very cool.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Wardlow discussed the acquisition of ROH by AEW CEO, Tony Khan with optimism about the future of the wrestling industry as a whole with the addition of another ‘quality wrestling product’, saying:
“I think it is awesome, just for the world of wrestling in general. We have obviously seen what Tony can do with a product. So, I believe Ring Of Honor is about to thrive like never before.”
“I would just like to see another quality wrestling product. Another, not just another option, but a real option, like a good option, and an enjoyable, entertaining option. An alternative for wrestling. Just something a little different, man. There’s so much talent in the business of wrestling, and there’s so many free agents, I feel like Ring Of Honor is going to be a great place for all of these people to go, and shine, like they deserve.”
Wardlow will be in action this Sunday, March 6 at AEW Revolution where he’s set to take part in the Face of the Revolution Ladder match whereby the winner earns a future title shot against AEW TNT Champion Sammy Guevara, where he will attempt to best Powerhouse Hobbs, Ricky Starks, Keith Lee, Orange Cassidy and either Christian Cage or Ethan Page.
