It would be safe to assume that considering the grandeur of August 27’s AEW All In event from London’s Wembley Stadium would guarantee the appearance of the company’s number one star, however, when it comes to MJF you can never be so sure.
Never one to mask his true feelings or turn down his heel dial, the AEW World Champion would recently comment on AEW’s upcoming international show for the first time in a promotional video published via AEW’s Twitter account.
When asked about his feelings on the event Max wouldn’t shy away from showing his personal displeasure.
“It doesn’t get me excited, I’m glad everybody else is.
“I’d rather die than have to go over there, but I’m sure Tony (Khan) is going to make me because he sucks.”
Whilst clearly not pleased about it, MJF would seem to recognise the importance of the event to AEW and its history-making capabilities.
MJF further commented:
“Every single show we put on is the best because we have the best talent pool, we have the highest energy crowds and we have the biggest star of them all — Maxwell Jacob Friedman.
“It’s the one show you need to go to, because what we’re doing is we’re making history.
“It’s going to be the biggest crowd in the history of this promotion we’ve ever been in front of. It’s going to be the loudest, most obnoxious, most drunk, most European fans we’ve been in front of.”
So, if you needed clarification on whether the AEW World Champion will be in attendance at All In then there you have it, although it is clearly of great reluctance to the champ.
With Tony Khan previously confirming that over 60,000 tickets have been distributed for the event, AEW All In is set to become the most-attended AEW show of all time, with the current record holder, Grand Slam 2021, seating just over 20,000 fans.
