Morton explains why he feels that way about the match.
Morton was asked about the dynamic between younger talents and veterans and if he feels younger talents want to learn from veterans or are they more invested in what social media thinks about their work.
This led to Morton speaking about AEW and he specifically mentioned the Wardlow versus Christian Cage TNT Title Ladder match. He feels fans did not get their money’s worth out of it.
Did any of you guys watch Double or Nothing the other night? And I’m not here to knock people, but you gotta ask questions about the writers. I don’t understand if they’re trying to wrestle or insult the fans… Somebody’s not listening somewhere. For example, I’ma take this one right here. They built Wardlow to be a badass and they built and they built and then you go out in a match and to me, it seems like these guys, they’re going out there in business for themselves. Not sticking to the storylines, not doing things — in wrestling, you gotta be able to learn to work together or they gotta listen to the agents or the agents don’t have a damn clue what they’re doing. To me… you just asked me and I’m gonna finish this with one line, because everybody in this business thinks they know everything but when it boils down to it, they don’t know sh*t, okay? Did I answer your question good enough?
He’s a big badass. He sold the whole f*cking match. Did you notice that? Okay. So I mean, if he’s that badass, you gotta go with that storyline. It just seems to me sometimes… It’s just like they built him and the match didn’t get over to me. I felt like the fans didn’t get their money’s worth. That’s my part.
