AEW president Tony Khan took part in his pre-Double or Nothing media call earlier today, where he answered several questions heading into the show.
One question brought up was regarding MJF referencing his ongoing contract issues with the company on television, to which Khan responded:
“Wrestling thrives when real life meets on-screen. The real-life conflict is often just as exciting as any conflict on-screen, which is one of the good things about what AEW has brought to the wrestling business. There was no real, major free agent market with the top stars crossing promotions, debuting, and frankly the competition needed to be brought to the biggest stage. With the 90s, we had TBS and TNT in the wrestling game. With the launch of AEW, we’ve been able to bring that back. Taking what is happening in real with potential movement and contract negotiations is exciting. Adding another element to what will be a very exciting match at Double or Nothing with Wardlow and MJF, who has been very vocal, not only about his own contract but about his former bodyguard and how he feels and he’s tried to hold down his career. For Wardlow, this is a huge opportunity to officially be part of AEW and to shed an image that he’s just MJF’s heavy and MJF’s thug. For MJF, it’s been a great opportunity to not only air some real-life grievances and air his actual status, contractually or otherwise. People are really excited about the fight at Double or Nothing on Sunday.”
MJF however apparently didn’t take to kindly to Khan’s response to the question, as he responded in a now-deleted Tweet, simply saying:
F*ck this place man
MJF has commented about how he ‘can’t wait’ to leave AEW in recent interviews, with the AEW star set to collide with Wardlow at this Sunday’s Double or Nothing event.
