Earlier this year, MJF managed to cause pandemonium before Double Or Nothing after he no-showed the AEW fan fest event. That was just the beginning as the entire day was full of chaos and rumors after that.

Initially, it was believed that flight was booked for him to go home, and this certainly worried fans who wanted to see him face Wardlow at Double Or Nothing. In fact, his Double Or Nothing status was up in the air.

In the end, he did show up and did the job for Wardlow. While speaking to Sam Roberts on NotSamWrestling, MJF was asked why he missed the meet and greet. MJF was very candid with his response.

“My company lost $10,000 that day, and I say my company because they are employing me. For the time being. I did not go because my boss, at that time, was being a fucking mark. If you don’t want to pay me what I’m worth, daddy does not show up to work. Daddy got the money. Daddy is back. Now me and Tony Khan are best friends. Tony Khan, great guy. When I stayed in said hotel room, they did a wellness check on me and the AEW security, this is a very true story, tried to break my door down. At the time, I had already left. They did the check, he literally went to kick my door down on a wellness check. That was everybody’s fear. ‘Is this MJF’s Brian Pillman moment?’ No, it was MJF trying to make what MJF deserves to be making. I have understood that there are some people who were really let down or offended. What I say to you is, I don’t care, get over it. I’m happy now. If you’re a fan of me, you should be happy too because I’m stupid…..I was rich before, but now I’m so rich I don’t even know what to do,” he said. “If you want the fans to see me and experience me on any level, pay me what I’m worth. He did, and we’re cool.”


We will have to wait and see whether MJF will end up winning the AEW World Title. Fans would certainly love to see that happen.
