Wardlow References CM Punk On 2/21 AEW Dynamite

Wardlow sparked some buzz with his promo on AEW Dynamite, as he took some shots at CM Punk.

Former TNT Champion Wardlow came to the ring on the February 21 episode of AEW Dynamite and noted that he was “pissed off.” He recalled how thousands of people used to chant his name before he said that the rocket that had been strapped to his back was put on backwards, as he had been sent straight into the ground and screwed over.

Wardlow then looked back on his time in AEW up to this point. He referenced CM Punk by bringing up the “real” world champion saying he beat him up so badly that his body was still breaking down. Plus, in another shot at Punk, he said it sounded like he was the “best in the world.”

Wardlow also called out AEW World Champion Samoa Joe and saying that he has beaten him in the past. “Mr. Mayhem” declared that people in the back should be fired because he had yet to receive a world title shot. Wardlow ended his message by saying no one could stop him, and this was no longer wrestling; instead, this was war.

AEW terminated CM Punk’s contract in September 2023 after his involvement in a backstage altercation with Jack Perry. He returned to WWE at WWE Survivor Series, but he went down with a torn triceps at WWE Royal Rumble 2024.
