AEW has announced that MJF will speak live on tonight’s (June 1) episode of AEW Dynamite following his defeat to Wardlow at Double or Nothing.
MJF was the lead story over the weekend, with the ongoing saga between him and AEW making the headlines.
In an update, PWInsider is reporting that MJF had a meeting with AEW officials the day after the Double or Nothing pay-per-view in Las Vegas.
If you need a reminder of the situation that unfolded throughout Double Or Nothing weekend, see below:
- MJF no-showed a meet & greet on Saturday night and wasn’t picking up his phone, and was spotted playing slots in a Mandalay Bay casino when the meet & greet was supposed to be happening
- It then emerged that a flight out of Las Vegas to Newark had been booked in MJF’s name
- MJF didn’t board said flight, and stayed in Las Vegas
- Throughout Sunday before Double Or Nothing, AEW took down, and then put back up, previews of his match against Wardlow, as there were still doubts over whether it would be happening
- The match did happen and opened the show – MJF was squashed and stretchered out, leading to speculation he’d been written out of AEW, either permanently, or at least until the situation is resolved
- After the show, it emerged that MJF showed up at “the last minute” – while the Buy-In was on the air to be specific – and left straight after the match was finished
- In the post-show media scrum, Tony Khan declined to comment on the situation
- PWInsider then reported that MJF was not expected to be attending AEW shows for at least several weeks, possibly longer
- MJF was then spotted in LAX the day before AEW Dynamite was being held in the city
- The day of Dynamite, it was reported that MJF had met with AEW management the day after Double Or Nothing
- AEW then officially announced he would be appearing on Dynamite
- This all stems from a contract dispute from a couple of months ago that seems to have developed into even more general unhappiness and conflict between parties
- This situation did not start out as a work, but if both sides come to an agreement and make good with each other, it could be turned into one
