Wardlow Happy With How Revolution Ladder Match Turned Out, Talks Fan Reaction

AEW superstar Wardlow joined the Bleav in Pro Wrestling program to discuss his huge triumphs at the recent Revolution pay-per-view event, and how he refers to that evening as one of the best nights of his life thus far. Highlights from the interview are below.

How he grew up a huge fan of the Hardyz, the Dudleyz, and Edge and Christian:

“It really did. Man, there’s so many situations thus far in my career that have just been mind-blowing and hard to even comprehend how things play out. I’ve said before, manifestation is real. So I grew up loving Hardy Boyz, Edge, Christian, Dudleyz, all those ladder matches. Revolution was my first Pay-Per-View performance and in my first Pay-Per-View, I am in a ladder match. Not only a ladder match, but I’m in a ladder match with Christian."

Says he's happy with the ladder match they put on at Revolution:

“It’s so wild how life works and how mine’s unraveling. It’s still hard to believe every day and I feel like we did things that have never been done before in a ladder match. Things you’ve never seen which I feel like are very hard to do and I feel like we created such an entertaining ladder match without giant huge crash and burn spots. I mean, compared to other ladder matches, we didn’t have those super crazy, crazy, crazy stunts. Sammy and Sting, they did the big spots. So we were able to put together a phenomenal ladder match without that crazy stuff and still tell a great story.”

Calls Revolution the best night of his life so far:

“When I say that was the best night of my life, I truly mean it. I mean the moment of grabbing that ring and putting it over my head at the end of that ladder match, hearing that crowd, and then hearing them again in the moment of placing that ring. When I turned around and I was walking up the ramp and I heard behind me the entire arena chanting my name, best moment of my life. I mean, I’ve been dreaming of that moment since I was in elementary school. I knew it would be a big moment, I just didn’t comprehend it would be received that well.”

On meeting William Regal backstage:

“It was actually funny. He’s somebody I hadn’t met yet and when I saw him backstage, I wasn’t expecting it and I actually, excuse my language, I think I looked at him and I was like ‘holy sh-t. Pleasure to finally meet you.’ And he looked at me like, like it just came out. I’m like ‘man, I’ve been waiting a long time to shake your hand.'”
