The wrestling world is abuzz with speculation as AEW World Champion, MJF, openly discusses his future amidst rumours of a potential move to WWE.

With his AEW contract nearing its end, the question on everyone’s lips is: where will MJF land in 2024?

AEW vs WWE: The Bidding War of 2024

The wrestling industry is no stranger to bidding wars, with talent frequently moving between promotions. As 2024 approaches, all eyes are on MJF, the 27-year-old AEW World Champion.

Although the exact details of his current contract with AEW remain shrouded in mystery, MJF has consistently pointed to January 1st, 2024, as the date of its expiration.

This revelation has ignited anticipation of a fierce bidding war between AEW and WWE for the wrestler’s coveted signature.

MJF’s Stance

Earlier this year, MJF underwent a character transition, turning from a heel to a babyface. Despite this significant change, discussions surrounding his contract have remained relatively low-key.

However, in a recent post-show promo following his World Championship match against Kenny Omega at AEW Collision in Uncasville, CT, MJF gave fans a hint about his future plans.

In his own words, MJF stated, “I’ll be honest. I still don’t know what I’m gonna do for the bidding war of 2024. But what I do know is that when I get the opportunity to wrestle the best bout machine, Kenny Omega, it tends to sway my opinions a little bit.”

WWE’s Interest

WWE’s interest in MJF is undeniable. Their track record shows that having All Elite Wrestling on a wrestler’s resume doesn’t hinder their chances of receiving a significant push in WWE.

Cody Rhodes is a prime example of this, and Jade Cargill’s recent treatment in WWE further solidifies this notion. With MJF’s recent victory over Kenny Omega at Collision, his stock has never been higher.

The wrestling community is now eagerly waiting to see if WWE can lure MJF away from Tony Khan and AEW.

The Decision Ahead for MJF: AEW or WWE?

MJF stands at a crossroads. On one hand, he has his current home, where he has built a formidable reputation and achieved significant success.

On the other, there’s WWE, the global juggernaut of professional wrestling, known for its ability to elevate stars to unprecedented heights.

As 2024 inches closer, MJF’s decision will undoubtedly send shockwaves through the wrestling world, regardless of his choice.
