For weeks, MJF has been putting obstacles in Wardlow’s way because Wardlow is bound to MJF’s contract. In the storyline, Wardlow is not under AEW contract and he’s had to accept the opponents thrown in front of him in order to be able to compete on TV.
Last week, MJF promised to bring in someone who is taller than Wardlow and said “you can’t teach that,” which was a big hint to fans that he was talking about Impact Wrestling’s W. Morrisey, aka former WWE star Big Cass.
As promised, William Morrisey debuted tonight on Dynamite against Wardlow. Morrissey was pinned after taking one powerbomb, following a top rope moonsault from Wardlow. Morrisey still works for Impact Wrestling so this may be a one-off appearance for now.
After the match, Wardlow attacked dozens of security guys for trying to handcuff him and he got a massive pop. MJF agreed to wrestle Wardlow with a couple of conditions that will be revealed at a contact signing on next week’s AEW Dynamite in Long Island, NY.
