Cash Wheeler of FTR has given his opinion on comments made by John Silver, who named John Skyler as the man who could be AEW’s next break out star.
Speaking to Inside The Ropes’ own Innes McVey Silver was full of praise of Skyler after the pair put on a great match on AEW Dark, despite it being put together last minute. After being asked who he saw as a potential break out star, Silver went straight to Skyler.
“The first one that comes to mind is John Skyler. Most people don’t know this but when I wrestled Skyler on Dark, that wasn’t supposed to be the match. It was supposed to be myself and Alex [Reynolds] versus John Skyler and the wrestler, an independent legend, B-Boy. So right in the beginning of the match B-Boy actually tore his Achilles, so the match stopped and they decided to put me and Skyler in a match with obviously very little preparation.
We just kind of went out there, we did the match and everything he did was great. I think the match went very well. He’s also been around a long time, so I’ve been on shows with him on the indies. But to be prepared for a match and have an injury happen, unfortunately, and then have it switched and still be ready to go is a great attitude to have.”
Posting on social media, Cash Wheeler has now backed up Silver’s assessment, calling Skyler “underappreciated.”
He’s not wrong. It’s crazy how good, and how under appreciated, Skyler is. I can think hundreds of less deserving guys he should kick in the ass and take their spot. https://t.co/FPDFwq2kmj
