MJF has been the talk of the pro wrestling world for the past several days due to him no-showing what was a pre-scheduled AEW Double Or Nothing Fan Fest last Saturday, with him not even responding to any of his calls. There was even speculations that MJF might not appear at AEW Double Or Nothing as there was a flight out of Las Vegas, Nevada he was scheduled to board, but that did not push through and he did make an appearance on the PPV.
Wardlow would go on and defeat MJF after hitting him with 10 powerbombs and immediately following the match, MJF was stretchered out of the arena, which is a sign that the promotion might remove MJF from the storylines and he might even be written off of AEW TV.
PWInsider.com reports that Maxwell Jacob Friedman is scheduled to not be on the road for at least the next couple of weeks, but he could even be out of the storylines and television much longer than that meaning that we shouldn’t expect to see MJF on either AEW Dynamite or AEW Rampage for the next couple of weeks.
There is no word yet on what is next for Wardlow and MJF following their match at last Sunday night’s AEW Double or Nothing PPV, but Wardlow is no longer under contract to MJF per the stipulations and he has now officially become “All Elite,” while MJF will not be used for storylines and he will not make an appearance on AEW TV until his issues with the company and Tony Khan are resolved.
Shortly following last Sunday’s AEW Double Or Nothing, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan took part in a Double Or Nothing media scrum, where he was asked about the situation regarding MJF, but he opted not to comment on it at this time. As of this writing, MJF has not made a comment on the situation either and he has not been active on social media.
