TNT Champion Samoa Joe beat Wardlow on the New Year’s Smash themed episode of AEW Dynamite on December 28, in a match that lasted two minutes.
After the match, Joe beat Wardlow down and cut off his trademark ponytail. Wardlow hasn’t been seen on AEW television since then.
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Wardlow was written off television due to an injury. He wrote,
“When Wardlow did the match where Samoa Joe took out his leg, the reason he hasn’t been back for revenge and dropped the TNT title is due to an injury issue. The stuff with Joe was done to set up his taking time off. The injury is not believed to be one that will keep him out of action for a long time”
