MJF gave his all as AEW World Champion, but all good things must come to an end. Now, Our Scumbag is away from AEW, television, but with such big Dynamite coming up, that makes fans wonder if the Salt of the Earth will return.

PW Insider Elite reports that MJF is anticipated to be absent from the upcoming AEW Dynamite: Homecoming. That event will go down in Daily’s Place without the Salt of the Earth.

It is reported that MJF is currently on vacation in Costa Rica and grappling with injuries. MJF is currently stationed at a considerable distance away from Jacksonville, Florida.

MJF’s last appearance on television was during Worlds End, where he lost the title to Samoa Joe. Then, Adam Cole ripped off his Devil mask for that big betraying reveal. Adam Cole then said on the next AEW Dynamite that MJF is dead, and he’s not coming back.


While there have been rumors about his contract status, no official confirmation has been provided. It is notable that, MJF’s image has been removed from the AEW roster on the website, which drew a lot of questions.

AEW Dynamite January 10th, 2024 Lineup:

  • Anna Jay, Thunder Rosa, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale vs. Skye Blue, Ruby Soho, Saraya & Julia Hart
  • Preston Vance, Adam Copeland, Dustin Rhodes & Orange Cassidy vs. Lance Archer, Brian Cage, Toa Liona & Kaun
  • Darby Allin & Sting vs. Konosuke Takeshita & Powerhouse Hobbs – Texas Tornado
