MJF brought a lot of attention on himself when it was reported that he bought a plane ticket home prior to AEW Double or Nothing. It was stated that he was unhappy about his current situation, because he overperformed in his deal. MJF wrestled at Double or Nothing, but there might be more to hash out between the Salt of the Earth and Tony Khan.

MJF was stretchered off after his Wardlow match, and a break from television was reported. In his report behind Fightful’s paywall, Sean Sapp stated that he was unable to confirm MJF’s hiatus through his sources.

It was further reported that a sit-down meeting between MJF and Tony Khan was slated to go down. It should also be noted that all of this might be a work, but it’s certainly making MJF’s situation in AEW much more interesting.

AEW sources told Fightful Monday that MJF had not flown home, and that there was a sit down meeting between Tony Khan and MJF planned. We should make this clear, at this point, we’ve not determined whether this aspect is real or a work, and when we asked, no follow up answer was provided, which was a first throughout this situation. Any time in a scenario like this, we’ll make our best efforts for clarity and transparency in that regard.

It was stated that if this story turned into a worked situation, “it did not start that way.” Now we will have to see what transpires next as the pro wrestling world adds another intriguing situation to the many that have existed before it in history.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
