MJF reportedly scheduled to make his AEW return “somewhat soon”

MJF has not appeared on AEW television since the June 1st 2022 edition of Dynamite when he brought up his contractual situation with the company.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that MJF is scheduled to make his AEW return “somewhat soon.” It’s believed that at the time of his promo in Los Angeles, the plan was for MJF to continue his rivalry with CM Punk. Meltzer wrote the following regarding the timeframe for MJF’s return…

“We don’t know the exact time but the negotiations for a new TV deal will likely be taking place starting in just a few months and into the spring, so the TV ratings numbers probably September to whenever the deal is closed are the most important to date so this recent drop is the worst time to have a drop. The landscape change of WWE becoming the ‘cool’ promotion came at a bad time and AEW basically needs all hands on deck.”

Britt Baker recently teased fans by uploading a photo with MJF to her Instagram story.
