Well, if it wasn’t a work before, it sure as hell is now.
MJF has lit the wrestling world on fire with his talents on the microphone on Dynamite last week. He cut an intense promo and since, we have seen AEW go scorched earth since. MJF has been removed from all promotional content for AEW and likely will not be on TV for a while.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW is willing to forget short-term financial gains in order to have a big payoff for their MJF storyline.
Meltzer also stated that AEW want fans to believe he has really left the company. This falls in line with recent reports regarding AEW turning a shoot into a work live on television.
Time will tell how long AEW will decide to go without mentioning MJF, but fans cannot wait to see what happens next in this storyline.
