AEW Poker Chip
Are fans hours from Maxwell Jacob Friedman becoming AEW Title holder? As of this writing, MJF has yet to be reported for a segment on AEW Explosive: Grand Slam, leading numerous to accept that the Salt of the Earth will make his presence felt in the show’s empty championship between Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson. Following a three-month absence from the organization, MJF made his surprise return at AEW All Out as the mystery contestant in the Casino Stepping stool Match, capturing the poker chip to procure him a championship session at some point later on. In the subsequent weeks, MJF has clarified that he’s working “smarter not harder,” and has chosen to bypass the AEW Tournament of Champions since he as of now has a surefire title shot at whatever point he pleases.
All things considered, it’s been muddled as to how adaptable that “at whatever point” really is. Past Casino Stepping stool Match winners like Brian Enclosure and “Executioner” Adam Page have given weeks notice to the AEW Title holder, certifying that they needed their championship matches at AEW Battle for the Fallen and AEW Full Stuff, respectively. Does MJF have to given either Moxley or Danielson a general setting, or might he at any point cash in on a debilitated opponent, similar to WWE’s Money in the Bank briefcase?
“I think any time, any sanctioned occasion we can certainly get it going,” AEW President Khan told Barstool Rasslin’ (h/t Fightful). “Nowadays, with live television and pay-per-view events, and all [of these other] opportunities, it’s exciting to have a contender out there looming and to have this huge championship match tonight on Explosive. Certainly, it’s considerably more interesting to have two of the best wrestlers on the planet, Bryan Danielson versus Jon Moxley one on one for the big showdown, and to have an extraordinary wrestler like MJF looming behind the scenes as a top contender with the option to challenge for the title any time. It’s an extremely interesting championship picture right now in AEW.”
MJF uncovered that not at all like the Money in the Bank briefcase, he would have to discuss his intentions with “someone beforehand,” however teased that that does not necessarily mean the champion.
“I really do have to have a conversation with someone beforehand, however that does not mean all parties should be in the know about said conversation,” MJF said. “I can cash this chip in at whatever point I need. I’m going to be waiting in the wings. I will pick the bones of whoever wins this match,” Am I going to do it at Grand Slam? I don’t be aware. Perhaps I’ll do it the following week or the week after that. Who is to say?”
Moxley and Danielson truly do fight for the AEW World Title tonight on AEW Explosive: Grand Slam.
