During the October 4th 2023 edition of Dynamite, Wardlow made his return to AEW after being gone from television for several months. Wardlow made short work of Griff Garrison with five powerbombs and then left through the crowd.
Prior to this week, Wardlow had not wrestled in AEW since losing the TNT Title on the debut edition of Collision from June 17th 2023. In August, Wardlow said he was feeling “very depressed” about not being on AEW television.
