As AEW gears up for their highly anticipated pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing, fans and critics alike eagerly anticipate the intense showdowns that await.

One of the marquee matches will feature AEW World Champion MJF defending his title against Sammy Guevara, “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, and Darby Allin. Ahead of this highly anticipated clash, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray shared his observations on MJF’s in-ring pace during a recent episode of the “Busted Open” podcast.

During the podcast, Bully Ray delved into his thoughts on MJF’s approach to his matches and how it has evolved over time. Ray noted that MJF had previously operated at a lightning-fast pace, displaying his athleticism and agility. However, Ray expressed his belief that MJF has consciously adjusted his speed to ensure his opponents can keep up with him.

While praising the efforts of Jungle Boy in matching MJF’s pace and highlighting Sammy Guevara’s standout moments, Ray admitted feeling less engaged with Darby Allin. Ray suggested that his perception might be influenced by an oversaturation of Allin’s presence, which has slightly impacted his excitement for the upcoming encounter.


“I think MJF was moving at a lightning-fast pace, I do not think he’s been at that same pace lately. Not by any lack of effort from him, but I believe that he had to knock it down a gear, so those other guys could keep up with him. I think that Jungle Boy has done a better job, I think that Sammy has had his moments, and for some reason, I’m not as into Darby because I’m hearing from Darby too much.”

Double or Nothing, set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, promises an electrifying lineup of matches. Alongside MJF’s title defense, other captivating bouts include Jamie Hayter defending the AEW Women’s Championship against Toni Storm, FTR defending the AEW World Tag Team Championship against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal, and Orange Cassidy putting his AEW International Championship on the line in a high-stakes Blackjack Battle Royal.

Wardlow’s AEW TNT Championship defense against Christian Cage in a Ladder match and Taya Valkyrie’s challenge for the TBS Championship against Jade Cargill add further excitement to the event.

With these exhilarating matchups on the horizon, fans can anticipate an unforgettable night of wrestling action.

How do you think the adjustments in MJF’s in-ring pace could impact the dynamics and outcome of the AEW World Championship match at Double or Nothing?
