The AEW World Championship match has been set for next month’s Worlds End pay-per-view.
MJF will defend the championship against Samoa Joe on December 30 in Long Island, New York. Joe confronted MJF and Adam Cole as they were in the ring on Wednesday’s Dynamite and mentioned their deal regarding MJF giving Joe a title shot. MJF initially balked at honoring his part of the deal. Cole said that the old MJF would have done that, but the new MJF would be a man of his word.
MJF then said he’d do it tonight on Dynamite. Joe said absolutely not, saying he would wait until Worlds End when MJF is at 100 percent. Joe said he considered MJF his property and would look after his property until Worlds End.
Although MJF defeated Joe at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam back in September Joe has continued to target MJF and the AEW World Championship. He offered to team with MJF to defend the ROH Tag Team titles against The Gunns at Full Gear as long as he got an AEW World title match after. MJF rejected the idea until Joe made the save for him against all members of Bullet Club Gold on the Rampage prior to last weekend’s Full Gear.
Here is the lineup for Worlds End:
