Updates regarding former AEW World Champion MJF’s status within the promotion have surfaced amidst his prolonged absence from television screens.

Since his defeat to Samoa Joe at the Worlds End pay-per-view in Long Island, MJF has been notably absent from AEW programming. The event marked a significant turning point, not only with his loss of the title but also the revelation of Adam Cole as ‘the Devil’ and the new leader of the Undisputed Kingdom, a faction comprising Roderick Strong, Wardlow, Mike Bennett, and Matt Taven.

Amidst speculations sparked by MJF’s cryptic references to the ‘bidding war of 2024’ before the turn of the year, questions have arisen regarding his ongoing affiliation with AEW. A recent report from PWInsider sheds light on the situation, indicating that MJF is currently recuperating from multiple injuries sustained towards the conclusion of his AEW World Championship reign.

While his absence from AEW’s roster page may raise eyebrows, sources suggest that MJF remains under contract with the company. Despite his non-participation in AEW’s Big Business event last month, reports reveal that he was engaged in discussions with AEW officials in Boston the day following the event.


However, MJF has yet to make a backstage appearance at any AEW events since Worlds End, leaving fans eagerly awaiting news of his return to the squared circle.

As the wrestling world awaits MJF’s comeback, the lingering question remains: When will the self-proclaimed ‘Salt of the Earth’ make his triumphant return to AEW? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below.
