Why was MJF brought back to AEW?

Last updated

Maxwell Jacob Friedman(MJF) stunned the Chicago fans at the NOW Arena last night with his shocking return to AEW. He had won the Casino Ladder Match earlier in the night at AEW All Out as a mysterious masked man with the help of Stokley Hathaway and his faction. Later he interrupted CM Punk’s celebration after capturing his second AEW World title.

Immediately after Punk pinned Moxley with his third GTS of the match, the screen went black, and a voicemail from AEW CEO Tony Khan began playing in the arena, with Khan saying he wanted Friedman to come back and would put him in the ladder match if he chose.

Tony Khan explains why MJF was brought back

“I’m the one who asked him to come back, because MJF’s a big star in this company, and this is one of the biggest events,” Khan said when asked about MJF’s return during the All Out post-show media scrums by Wrestling Inc. senior news editor Nick Hausman. “A year ago, CM Punk debuted here, and I thought it was right for the fans ’¦ For the fans, I thought the best that would do as a company was bring MJF back.”

MJF is set to get a shot at CM Punk’s AEW World Championship soon.
