The AEW World Champion MJF has given his thoughts on not being in the last match at Double or Nothing.
Going into AEW Double or Nothing on Sunday night in Las Vegas, the company promoted a double main event. The two matches that they pushed the most were Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s AEW World Title defense against Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara & “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry and the Anarchy in the Arena Match between The Elite and the Blackpool Combat Club.
Despite the fact that companies say there are more than one main event on a show, most fans view the last match as the main event. At Double or Nothing, AEW went with the Anarchy in the Arena match as the last match.
In his AEW World Title at Double or Nothing, MJF and the three other men that make up AEW’s “Four Pillars” had an incredible championship match that had a lot of nearfalls where it looked like any of them could win. The finish saw MJF put the AEW World Title on Perry while Allin did a Coffin Drop off the top rope, so Allin’s back hit the title. MJF applied a headlock takeover to pin Allin just like he has done in the past with that move.
While speaking at the the post-Double or Nothing press conference that aired on AEW’s Youtube channel, MJF was asked if he was unhappy about not going on last.
“No, no. Why the f**k would I want to roll around in Jon Moxley’s blood? I’m f**king good on that, okay? No thanks. Also, realistically, whether it’s this company or WWE, I think the World Title having to go on last is kinda dead in wrestling. Also, how many PPVs has the World Title not gone on last in this company…”
“But yeah, I’d rather not run around in all that f**kin’ mid blood. Can we get real real quick? That was f**king disgusting. Wheeler Yuta was in that match. You think I wanna roll around in Wheeler Yuta blood?”
Even though Max didn’t get to main event Double or Nothing, he did main event Revolution in March beating Bryan Danielson, and he main evented Full Gear last November when he beat Jon Moxley to become the AEW World Champion in a controversial fashion.
