Scrapped MJF Babyface AEW Plans Revealed AEW

MJF has proven to be one of the most valuable assets on the AEW roster, with the most recent proof being seen on AEW Dynamite this week.

Warning that his “reign of terror has just begun”, it looks like we won’t be seeing a turn of face from Maxwell Jacob Friedman for a long time.

In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required), Dave Meltzer explores alternative Full Gear plans that never transpired:

“Multiple people have noted to us in the past week that there was discussion regarding having MJF be the lead face coming out of Full Gear.

“It was my intuition because the company needed a new hot babyface to really around and making a top babyface today is far harder than a top heel.

“That said, Tony Khan made the call and at this point the absolute worst idea would be to turn MJF face now because that window has closed at least for many more months down the line.

“It might have missed its peak and all, but who can say where things will be in six months or a year.”

MJF is the current AEW World Champion, following assistance from William Regal at AEW Full Gear that cost Jon Moxley the championship.

Regal recently explained his actions during a pre-taped interview on AEW Dynamite.
