One AEW star has a bone to pick with MJF over his list of recent accomplishments.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman is on the run of a lifetime. On the latest edition of Collision, he was able to fend off ‘The Best Bout Machine’, Kenny Omega to retain the AEW World Championship. With that achievement, the Salt of the Earth has also cemented his place in company history as he will now surpass Omega’s 346-day reign with the gold on November 1st.
In a recent social media post, the star looked back on his accomplishments over the past two years, including his Dog Collar Match against CM Punk, Iron Man bout with Bryan Danielson, and his main event match against his brochacho Adam Cole in front of over 70,000 fans at All In at Wembley Stadium.
“The greatest dog collar match. The greatest iron man match. The greatest 4 way match. The greatest Collision match. The biggest main event of all time. I’m just getting warmed up. The journey to 365 days as champion starts NOW! Time to get my belt back from that Knife pervert and his gang bang boys.”

However, Dax Harwood has taken issue with MJF’s claim to have had the best Dog Collar match in history and reminded the star of FTR’s classic bout against The Briscoe Brothers at ROH Final Battle in December 2022. That bloody bout saw The Briscoes bring an end to FTR’s 253-day reign as the ROH Tag Team Champions.
Posting a picture from the match, Harwood told Friedman to “pray for forgiveness” for the oversight.

For his part, MJF revised his own comment, saying he “forgot to write singles” before getting another shot in by calling Harwood a “grumpy b*****d.”
MJF will defend the AEW World Championship at Full Gear
Friedman won’t have much time to rest after his epic match against Omega, as he is now on a collision course with Jay White at Full Gear. The leader of Bullet Club Gold stole the gold several weeks ago and has been parading it around as his own ever since.
Meanwhile, MJF has been at odds with another member of the Bang Bang Gang in Juice Robinson. However, he ended things with the star on the October 25th edition of Dynamite when he defeated Robinson to win the Dynamite Diamond Ring for the fifth year in a row.
Now, his path to The Switchblade is clear and the two will settle their differences on November 18th.
