Stokely Hathaway is the smooth-talking, heel manager of AEW’s The Firm who won the poker chip for MJF at All Out. Stokely talks about MJF’s surprise return, what it was like climbing the ladder in the middle of the ring, and the one request he made of Ethan Page during the match. Stokely explains the last-minute changes they all had to make after CM Punk’s injury and absence, and what inspired some of his amazing promos during that time. He also details his journey to AEW, working with Jade Cargill, what he’s learned from his angle with Taz and Hook, and why he calls his upcoming match at the Hardy Compound “surreal.” Stokely also talks stand-up comedy, acting and theater, and how that performance background led him to pro wrestling.
