MJF has worked hard to make himself one of the best heels in the modern-day pro wrestling industry. He did not waste any time cementing himself as one of the top stars in AEW. Tony Khan also has no issues with MJF talking about his contract problems on television.

The Salt of the Earth previously revealed that he will go where the money is after his current AEW contract expires in 2024. MJF even stated that there will be a bidding war for him in 2024, adding that to his promos as well.

The Salt of the Earth is said to be unhappy with his contract status as well. While speaking on today’s AEW Double Or Nothing Media Call, AEW President Tony Khan stated that he doesn’t mind MJF talking about his contract issues on television. In fact, he welcomes it.

Wrestling thrives when real life meets on-screen. The real-life conflict is often just as exciting as any conflict on-screen, which is one of the good things about what AEW has brought to the wrestling business. There was no real, major free agent market with the top stars crossing promotions, debuting, and frankly the competition needed to be brought to the biggest stage. With the 90s, we had TBS and TNT in the wrestling game. With the launch of AEW, we’ve been able to bring that back. Taking what is happening in real with potential movement and contract negotiations is exciting.


Adding another element to what will be a very exciting match at Double or Nothing with Wardlow and MJF, who has been very vocal, not only about his own contract but about his former bodyguard and how he feels and he’s tried to hold down his career. For Wardlow, this is a huge opportunity to officially be part of AEW and to shed an image that he’s just MJF’s heavy and MJF’s thug. For MJF, it’s been a great opportunity to not only air some real-life grievances and air his actual status, contractually or otherwise. People are really excited about the fight at Double or Nothing on Sunday.”

MJF and Wardlow are currently engaged in a feud that will culminate at AEW Double Or Nothing. We will have to wait and see whether Wardlow will beat MJF and end their feud for good. Fans simply cannot wait for Wardlow to get his hands on MJF.
