Wardlow Dominates Cody Rhodes in Shocking AEW Dynamite Debut


Wardlow has arrived!

The heavyweight juggernaut fulfilled several weeks of vignettes this Wednesday night, debuting on AEW Dynamite as the new hired muscle of Maxwell Jacob Friedman.

Wardlow rushed the ring and attacked the “American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes, who had come out just moments before against doctor’s orders looking for revenge on MJF. After delivering several powerful maneuvers, the big man then choked out Rhodes with his own necktie, before literally hanging him over the ropes.

While MJF had originally been in the ring to go back-and-forth with AEW World Champion Chris Jericho on the microphone, and him joining the Inner Circle was heavily teased, it did not appear that the MJF/Wardlow pairing had joined up with the faction by the time Dynamite went off the air.
