The wrestling world was abuzz with questions regarding MJF’s whereabouts during last week’s edition of AEW Collision (July 22). Though the AEW World Champion was notably absent from the show, intriguing hints about his presence emerged during a segment with FTR, leaving fans to speculate on what’s in store for the upcoming events.
As the excitement builds for Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler’s defense of the AEW Tag Team Championship against MJF and Adam Cole, FTR sent shockwaves through the arena by warning Cole not to place his trust in MJF. Boldly asserting their dominance, FTR confidently declared that they would triumph over their challengers in the highly anticipated July 29 showdown.
Behind the curtain, PWInsider has now disclosed that MJF was indeed backstage during the show, even though he remained unseen by the camera. This revelation adds a new layer of intrigue to the unfolding saga and leaves fans eagerly awaiting the unfolding drama.
MJF and Cole earned their shot at the AEW Tag Team Championship by conquering the Blind Eliminator Tag Team Tournament. Surmounting fierce competition, the dynamic duo defeated the teams of Matt Menard & The Butcher, as well as Big Bill and Brian Cage, to secure their spot in the tournament finals.
