Wardlow Explains Uncertainty Ahead Of AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 Match With MJF AEW

AEW star Wardlow has explained the uncertainty behind his AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 showdown with MJF.

The last time fans witnessed Maxwell Jacob Friedman inside the ring for All Elite Wrestling was against Wardlow at Double Or Nothing on May 29.

MJF was stretchered out of the arena that night following his loss, but he later returned to AEW Dynamite that following Wednesday to cut a now-infamous promo on Tony Khan.

The MJF vs. Wardlow match was up in the air heading into the pay-per-view after Friedman missed the Double Or Nothing fan fest and reportedly booked a flight out of Las Vegas following contract issues with the company.

Speaking to Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy, the current TNT Champion reflected on what led to the Double Or Nothing bout.

He said:

“That should be considered one of the best nights of my life and it really wasn’t. Everything that was going on with Max at the time and then in my life personally. Just nothing was going right and it’s kind of sad that everything built up to this big night and there was so much that ruined it. All the crap with Max and everything he was pulling. I mean, I showed up that day not knowing if I was wrestling. There’s a lot more I could say about it but I don’t want to get angry but yeah, that should have been one of the best nights of my life and obviously the outcome was amazing but I really didn’t ever have the opportunity to enjoy it. I feel like ever since that night things have kind of been just off and I feel like I’m still trying to get back on track ever since that night and we’ll get there. But it is what it is, in this in life and in this business, not everything goes perfectly.”

Wardlow went on to defeat Scorpio Sky to win the TNT Championship on the July 6 edition of AEW Dynamite, while MJF hasn’t been seen in the promotion since his pipebomb promo.
