Major Update On MJF’s Challenger At AEW Double Or Nothing 2023

Major Update On MJF’s Challenger At AEW Double Or Nothing 2023 AEW

Tonight’s AEW Dynamite (April 19) kicked off with an in-ring war on the mic between three of four AEW ‘pillars’.

With Jungle Boy Jack Perry making an entrance, being interrupted by Sammy Guevara making an entrance who was then interrupted by Darby Allin, the trio ended up having some spicy exchanges.

With Allin accusing Perry of being in AEW because he is a part of the California clique, he also criticized Guevara for being a sidekick to Chris Jericho.

With MJF coming out to announce that he had consulted his “good friend Tony Khan,” in the back he had a resolution for their squabbling.

There would be a ‘Four Pillars’ Tournament between the pillars to find out who would move on to AEW Double or Nothing to face MJF for the AEW World Championship.

MJF pulled names from a hat to determine that the person who got a bye in the first round of the tournament was Darby Allin.

Meaning, in round one for the first time ever it would be Sammy Guevara vs. Jungle Boy Jack Perry, in the main event on tonight’s AEW Dynamite (April 19).

The winner would face Allin next week, and the winner of that will then challenge MJF in a singles match at Double Or Nothing.

In the main event of AEW Dynamite, MJF’s presence proved to be pivotal as Sammy Guevara took on Jungle Boy Jack Perry.

In a backstage interaction during an interview with Renee Paquette earlier in the show, MJF approached Sammy Guevara with a scintillating offer: join him in the AEW Double or Nothing main event.

The catch? His expectation would be that Guevara not compete, rather just lay down, but MJF sweetened the deal by offering a blank check and telling Sammy to name his price.

While Guevara seemingly aligned with MJF for a hefty sum, in the main event he was initially going it alone against Jungle Boy as the pair put on a good match.

However, in the end after taking a big bump off of the top rope onto the time keeper’s table, Jungle Boy was at risk of being counted out when MJF appeared from out of nowhere!

Clobbering Jungle Boy with the Dynamite Diamond ring, entirely knocking him out, Guevara had distracted the referee during the attack but then pointed back to the action at ringside, reminding the ref to continue the count.

The count went on and without Perry returning to the ring, Guevara won the match via countout and will go on to face Darby Allin on next week’s AEW Dynamite.

Elsewhere on tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite (April 19), there was a big title change, a new ally was revealed to be joining with The Elite and there was a big update about MJF’s challenger for the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing.
