AEW World Champion MJF has long time been speculated about potentially making the leap to WWE when his contract with AEW expires.
MJF’s contract is set to expire in 2024, which has been referenced many times on AEW television as part of his character and ongoing title reign.
Fightful Select (subscription required) has provided more information on MJF’s deal, saying that they have no confirmation about the date of MJF’s AEW contract, except that an extension he signed early on in AEW’s lifecycle did have it set to expire at the start of 2024.
MJF has told everyone who has enquired about his contract the same thing he has repeated on AEW television, and that is that his contract expires at the start of 2024.
As far as WWE, MJF has also told those there that his contract is set to expire at the start of 2024, with one WWE talent outright saying that MJF told them ‘I’m looking forward to being there in 2024’, and noted that they take it with a grain of salt despite MJF wanting them to think he was serious.
Word of MJF saying this has made it’s way to other talent in the company as well.
One source in WWE that spoke to Fightful said that WWE ‘obviously’ has been and will be interested in MJF when he becomes available, but many in the company are not even sure when his contract is actually set to expire, and are operating on the assumptions and what he has told to people.
Fightful has yet to hear from anyone who has actually heard from MJF that he has extended his AEW contract, though it has been assumed by many.
It is important to note that Fightful have no confirmations regarding the actual expiration date of his contract if he were to have signed an extension.
MJF is not the only top AEW star to be speculated about a potential move to WWE, as Kenny Omega is also said to be ‘open-minded’ about a move to the company.
MJF is set to defend his AEW World Championship against Bryan Danielson at tomorrow night’s AEW Revolution pay-per-view.
