Swerve Strickland Addresses Potential MJF AEW World Championship Match

Swerve Strickland Addresses Potential MJF AEW World Championship Match AEW

Swerve Strickland has addressed a potential AEW World Championship defence against the newly returning MJF.

Shortly after the opening bout at AEW Double or Nothing 2024 between Roderick Strong and Will Ospreay, an unexpected Adam Cole promo segment took place, which led to the long-awaited return of former AEW World Champion MJF.

With MJF back on the scene in AEW, fans will be eager to see what his immediate goals are.

While a match with Cole seems likely to be first on the agenda, due to Cole’s ongoing injury absence some fans believe MJF could instead divert his attention towards recapturing the title he lost back at AEW Worlds End.

Discussing the matter of MJF receiving an AEW World Championship opportunity was the current champion Swerve Strickland, who had the following to say at the AEW Double or Nothing post-show press conference:

“It’s a possibility, and that’s the beauty of this whole company. Everything is possible. I know he probably has unfinished business with what Undisputed Kingdom did to him and Adam Cole. He probably wants to finish up some things.

“It goes to show, I’m not one you can walk over and come at anytime, any place, anywhere you see fit. While you were gone, I was building. I was building and making this place a fortress.

“You can come in. I’m not saying you can’t challenge for the World Championship, but you have work to do. Just like I had work to do. You have work to do. Show me something.

“This isn’t the same All Elite Wrestling from when you left. Worlds End, just that three month span, from Worlds End to Dynasty. This company made a major shift in a lot of different ways. It’s up to Maxwell Jacob to figure out where he fits right now. I’m not going to make it easy.”

Strickland successfully defended his AEW World Championship against Christian Cage at Double or Nothing.
