MJF is set to headline yet another AEW pay-per-view at Worlds End and now he’s explained why that means more to him than even main eventing All In.
MJF and Adam Cole shared the main event slot at AEW All In at Wembley Stadium in August 2023, facing off for the AEW World Championship. AEW smashed the record for the most tickets sold for a wrestling show in history with All In and MJF and Cole also had a role in the pre-show for the event as they teamed up to win the ROH Tag Team Championship.
MJF defeated Cole in London, England but friendship won the night as the best friends left together. Now MJF will put his AEW World Title on the line against Samoa Joe at Worlds End on December 30 in Long Island, NY.
Worlds End Main Event Means More To MJF Than All In
Speaking on the SI Media podcast, MJF explained why headlining the Worlds End show means more to him than the All In event as it’s a case of there’s no place like home:
So I main evented in front of 84,000 people at Wembley Stadium. I think this one means more. I grew up in the barn. I grew up in that s***hole. It’s my s***hole. It’s our s***hole. I’m everyone’s scumbag. It’s super kinetic. It feels right.
They renovated [Nassau Coliseum]. I’m almost upset because we like our things the way we originally associate with it. But now, honestly, it’s a gorgeous stadium. The seating arrangements are much better. The chairs don’t break like they used to when I was a kid. I’m just happy. I’m in a really good place right now mentally. Physically, not so much. I tore my labrum. We can get into that, I guess, but I’m just really happy. I’m proud of this title reign.
MJF revealed his AEW contract expires on January 1st, 2024, hitting back at suggestions that he has already signed a new deal with Tony Khan’s company.
