There are several sources that believe that Friedman could be coming back imminently with most expecting the former AEW World Champion to return in his hometown of Long Island, New York for the upcoming Forbidden Door pay-per-view, if not sooner.

MJF has remained under AEW contract for quite some time after reportedly inking an extension with the company, which effectively replaced his previous deal that was set to expire on December 31, 2023.

As per his new deal, Friedman is now among the highest earners in All Elite Wrestling. However, he is currently out of action recovering from multiple injuries.

MJF hasn’t confirmed his contract status to much of anyone in the industry and many close to him, instead playing up that his deal was up at the end of 2023.

It remains to be seen when MJF will make his return to AEW television at the time of this writing.
