According to reports, AEW President Tony Khan and MJF will meet this week.
As we previously reported, MJF’s participation in AEW Double Or Nothing was in jeopardy this weekend when he skipped Saturday’s Fan Fest due to ongoing concerns with Khan. Wardlow ended up starting Double Or Nothing for MJF, in a match in which Wardlow defeated his former teammate to win. After the contest, MJF was stretchered away.
Following the conclusion of Double Or Nothing, it was stated that MJF arrived at the T-Mobile Arena soon before the match on Sunday and left immediately afterward.
MJF is also scheduled to skip the next few AEW TV tapings, if not more, according to reports. According to Fightful, MJF has a lot to think about in terms of the future.
According to a recent report from Fightful Select, MJF has not yet returned home from Las Vegas, and a sitdown meeting between him and Khan was planned.
There’s still no word on whether or not this whole thing is a hoax. According to numerous accounts, the story did not begin as a work, but it remains to be seen if it has evolved into one.
Those manning Saturday’s Fan Fest were not advised ahead of time that MJF would not be attending, and there were performers who stayed to make up the difference who were also unaware of the situation. Fans who paid $100 for their MJF meet and greet and photo op were reportedly given refunds.
AEW has made overtures to MJF regarding contract negotiations, which have been ignored for weeks. MJF, on the other hand, warned a number of individuals backstage that he expected the problem to boil over and be discussed during Double Or Nothing Week.
The AEW contract with MJF is set to expire on January 1, 2024. When the time comes, he has declared that he will wrestle wherever the money is, and many sources have revealed that WWE is interested in him. While Khan and MJF have been feuding for a few months, they once had a good friendship. Khan is said to have told other stars that he’d be willing to pay MJF like a top talent since their heated argument in late March. MJF’s dissatisfaction, on the other hand, continued.
