MJF retained his AEW World championship in the main event of the AEW Revolution this past Sunday. The Salt of the Earth quieted his skeptics and haters with a fantastic presentation in the main event of the previously mentioned pay-per-view. The Devil conquered Bryan Danielson in a fierce Sudden Death Iron Man match and recently declared himself “The Best in the World”.
MJF received a great entrance where a stringed orchestra played his theme music. He then walked out in a devil’s mask. After a brutal 60-minute Iron Man Match which further turned into Sudden Death rules match.
MJF scored the final pinfall when Bryan Danielson tapped out to the LeBell Lock. Following his high-stakes bout, he took to Twitter to proclaim that He was the Best in the world, taking a direct jab at the person who calls himself that, CM Punk.
“I’m the best wrestler in the World.”
Following the AEW All Out event last year, CM Punk launched a brutal verbal assault on Colt Cabana, Page, and The Elite, causing the media scrum to devolve into mayhem. We haven’t seen CM Punk in AEW since the infamous “Brawl Out” incident. However, the incident severely harmed Punk’s reputation, and the aftermath has hampered AEW ever since.
On the other hand, MJF returned at All-Out in September immediately after CM Punk won the AEW World Title, but the storyline went in the pipeline after the aftermath of the All Out Media Scrum.
MJF’s recent victory over Bryan Danielson is surely a big push in his young career with new heights awaiting the Salt of the Earth. We will have to wait and see who steps up next to MJF in an attempt to capture his AEW World championship. You can check out his tweet here.
