Brandon Cutler, during his tenure in AEW, has often found himself portrayed as a lower-tier talent, relegated to a comedic role. Whether it be enduring a string of losses or serving as The Elite's comedic foil, Cutler has displayed his humorous side.
However, in a recent interview with "Comedy Store Wrestling," he hinted that it might be time for a change in his character. The AEW roster boasts an abundance of exceptional wrestlers, each excelling in their own particular style.
Cutler acknowledged this fact but observed that when it comes to comedy, the roster is relatively thin, making it a viable niche for him. He shared his thoughts on the heightened competition within the industry, recognizing the need to excel and stand out among the best.
In his own words, "The game is elevated now, you can't just be kind of good, or like good enough, you need to be top shelf of whatever category you're going for." He believes he can attain that top spot in the comedy department and is determined to pursue it.
