AEW is holding All Out tonight in Chicago, and you can never rule out a return or a big surprise. One poorly-kept secret is that MJF is likely going to be a part of the night in some form or fashion.
MJF hasn’t been heard from since that pipe bomb promo in Los Angeles, one where he said Tony Khan is a “f*cking mark.” They cut off his microphone and haven’t mentioned him since.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that AEW talent aren’t saying “no” about MJF. This will obviously be a surprise for the show, one they want to keep. Therefore, they won’t confirm or deny the fact that MJF is planned for tonight’s show. That could give fans a lot of hope that they will see the Salt of the Earth once again.
This is the first time since his LA Dynamite promo that talent we’ve heard from haven’t outright said “no” or they haven’t heard from him, which is a change at least. Tony Khan hasn’t spoken to anyone we’ve talked to about him specifically. There were at least three talent that were convinced that MJF would be the Joker in the Casino ladder match, but it is important to note that we are unable to confirm that whatsoever.
We’ve received tons of tips about MJF over the weekend about him being in town, areas being closed off in the venue, but we haven’t confirmed any of them.
We’ll have to see if MJF appears at All Out. It’s very likely, because he’s been gone long enough. The rumor mill is really churning with his name as we approach the big Chicago event.
