MJF has been noticeably absent from AEW television as of late. Fans eagerly awaiting his return were left disappointed when he pulled out of a scheduled appearance at the Lexington Toy & Comic Con in Lexington, Kentucky.

According to Fightful Select, MJF’s absence from the event lineup was unexpected, leaving organizers to find a replacement. Swerve Strickland stepped in to fill the void, giving fans an alternative opportunity to meet their favorite wrestling stars.

While no reason was provided for MJF’s withdrawal from the event, fans were understandably disappointed by the absence of “The Salt of the Earth.”

MJF’s last in-ring appearance took place on December 30, 2023, at AEW Worlds End pay-per-view, where he faced off against Samoa Joe in a high-stakes battle for the AEW World Title. Despite putting up a valiant effort, MJF fell short, with Samoa Joe emerging victorious and claiming the championship.


The aftermath of the match also saw Adam Cole revealing himself as The Devil, signaling a significant shift in alliances within AEW.

Since then, MJF has remained absent from the ring, leaving fans speculating about his next move. Only time will tell when he will make his much-anticipated return to AEW programming.

Ringside News will continue to monitor MJF’s status and provide updates as new details emerge. Stay tuned for the latest developments from the world of professional wrestling.
