MJF shocked AEW fans with a profanity-laden pipe bomb he dropped during an episode of Dynamite three months ago. AEW removed every mention of MJF from their programming. Tonight, he made his much-anticipated return.
MJF returned during the closing moments of the show to confront CM Punk, who had just won the AEW World Championship back from Jon Moxley. Punk was standing in the middle of the ring when the lights went out.
An audio recording was then played throughout the arena. It was Tony Khan trying to convince MJF to appear at All Out and participate in the Casino Ladder match. For those who missed, MJF was The Joker in the ladder match. He also told MJF that he didn’t have to sign a contract extension.
AEW played CM Punk’s ROH pipe bomb from 2005 during that little ROH highlight reel. The screen then showed MJF with his back facing the camera. The Salt of the Earth then appeared on the ramp as the arena erupted in excitement.
As the show went off the air, MJF and CM Punk had a little stare-down. Then MJF gave the fans in Chicago double middle fingers.
Are you excited now that MJF is back in AEW? Sound off in the comments!
