MJF Has Isolated Himself From AEW Locker Room – According to fans in attendence, MJF no showed today’s AEW Double Or Nothing Fan Fest meet and greet.
A fan on Twitter said that security said that he would not be there and that he wasn’t answering his phone. That same fan says she heard from someone who saw him at the casino.
Fans were given the option to get in a different line or to get a full refund. There were probably some fans upset at this and some may just chalk it up to MJF playing up his heel character but credit to AEW for promptly taking care of those who asked for the refund.
For anyone who thinks that MJF no showing a meet and greet today was part of his heel schtick, that is not the case and there are other issues going on behind the scenes.
MJF Has Isolated Himself From AEW Locker Room
PWInsider noted that there has been a feeling backstage that MJF and AEW are not on the same page and he has been keeping more to himself behind the scenes. MJF has stated publicly that his AEW contract runs out on January 1, 2014, and he plans on seeing what both companies offer him when his deal runs out. PWInsider reports that he has not been receptive to sitting down and talking and there’s been a feeling that he’s been disrespectful to Tony Khan.
As noted, MJF quote tweeted something that Khan said about blending reality and having things carry over on-screen. MJF tweeted and deleted this: “F**king lol. F**k this place man.”
In recent interviews, MJF said that he still keeps in contact with Cody Rhodes and has spoken with Paul Heyman via text. He has also stated that he is still friends with Bruce Prichard. They know each other from their days in MLW. MJF has also talked about being unhappy about the ex-WWE wrestlers coming in and making more money than him.
It’s no secret that MJF grew up a WWE fan and he’s had aspirations of working there and becoming a top star. Several years ago, he tried out for Tough Enough but was not selected for the show.
It appears that a lot, if not all, of what he’s been saying in the media in recent weeks is legitimate. MJF is scheduled to wrestle Wardlow tomorrow night at AEW Double Or Nothing.
