MJF Lays Out His Plans on AEW Dynamite

MJF made his triumphant return to AEW at Double or Nothing, but he made a list of targets last night on Dynamite.

Borrowing the “Best in the World” line from old rival CM Punk, the former AEW World champion said he wanted to take on Will Ospreay, Kazuchika Okada, and Swerve Strickland.

Ospreay and Swerve will collide for the AEW World title at the Forbidden Door PPV. Before facing any of those guys, MJF may find himself across the ring soon from Rush.

The Mexican start is a two-time former Ring Of Honor World champion, and he came to the ring to interrupt MJF’s promo (that’s a wrestling speech).


Swerve Strickland didn’t wait for Forbidden Door to defend his World title, as he defeated Roderick Strong in the main event of Dynamite.

It’s funny that the current WWE champion helped found AEW (Cody Rhodes), and the current AEW champion is a guy the WWE gave up on (Isaiah “Swerve” Scott).

Ospreay has his own title defense coming up next week. Rey Fenix won a four-way match over Orange Cassidy, Kyle O’Reilly, and Jay Lethal to earn an International title match against Ospreay on the next Dynamite episode.

ROH champion Mark Briscoe defeated “The Machine” Bryan Cage to earn a spot in the six-way ladder match at Forbidden Door for the vacant TNT title.

Mercedes Mone will defend the TBS title at Forbidden Door against New Japan Strong women’s champ Stephanie Vaquer with both belts on the line.

ROH Pure Champion Wheeler Yuta returned from a long injury. He joined his Blackpool Combat Club pals Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, and Claudio Castagnoli to beat Volador Jr,, Magnus, Rugido, and Esfinge from Mexico’s CMLL promotion.

Danielson also announced that he would enter the Owen Hart Cup tournament in an attempt to end his wrestling career with a World title shot at the All In pay-per-view at Wembley Stadium in London.

Saraya (formerly Paige in WWE) defated Mariah May. Since Toni Storm and Mina Shirakawa both have deep relationships with May, they played tug-of-war with her head in a competition to see who would comfort her. Storm vs. Shirakawa for the AEW Women’s title is another Forbidden Door match that could steal the show.
