MJF is touted as one of the best heels of this generation for many fans. He has already become a main event level talent despite not winning any major title in AEW yet. He is also set to have a huge meeting with Tony Khan tomorrow amidst high tensions.
Prior to AEW Double Or Nothing, MJF decided to choose pure chaos as he no-showed a Fan event before the pay-per-view. That was the beginning because his match against Wardlow was in doubt.
Thankfully, MJF did his duties and was squashed by Wardlow. It was also said that MJF is not expected to be on television for while now. While speaking on the Busted Open podcast, Bully Ray talked about MJF’s situation with AEW. He gave MJF props for not going home despite his issues with Tony Khan.
“Was it a work? Was it a shoot? I mean, who the hell knows if they’re working a great job, because you heard the reception for MJF last night when he came out. Most people were legitimately pissed off at him. Let’s just assume for one second that everything leading up to this was legitimate, and it was a shoot. MJF, for whatever reason, was pissed off, and he decided to take his bat & ball and go home. Let’s say it was 100% accurate. At least at the eleventh hour, cooler heads prevailed. He changed his mind, he came back, and he the right thing by doing good business.
So I commend MJF for showing up and doing his job, despite the fact that he might have been 1,000% legitimately pissed off at AEW, Tony Khan, whoever it may have been. At least he did not go home and stay home.”
It should also be noted that all of this might be a work, but nothing is 100% certain as of yet. Regardless, we’ll keep you updated on this developing story right here at Ringside News!
