And you get the accompanying rumors that he no-shows 'Double Or Nothing', and he's unhappy with his paydays, his contract, etc

Brian Pillman-esque I would say

I'd say your assessment is spot on, except that both parties are in on the bit this time. One of the few ways left to work the audience is using social media and while this could be 100% legitimate, I think we're watching a possible masterclass in kayfabe/working.

Yep, MJF is an asshole on tv. He can’t go around kissing babies and helping old ladies across the street off camera. All the smart fans think they know it all, so Tony and MJF work them all and he gets even more heat.

Best kept secret since 3rd man NWO

People that might know aren't talking (thats the way it should be) and Twitter is buying it at a 2-1 rate, comparing it to Sasha Banks & Naomi

Horrible state wrestling is in when both companies biggest money making angles or hotshot excitement are either shoot style issues or teasing guest appearances or signings  because the actual product from both companies are so stale that nobody cares about actual angles ,matches and what we are seeing on the tv product anymore...

People love wrestletalk more than the actual production from both companies

Which is crazy since the Sasha stuff is clearly legit and there’s at least a 75-25% chance this is a work. Even the usual sources are saying that they could be getting worked and comparing it to Pillman, except that TK is clearly in on it.

On AEW's youtube page there is a MJF vs Wardlow match preview video. Wasn't  there two hours ago.

Meltzer says MJF still hasn't been seen at the building but he hasn't left Vegas.

Thats poor commitment to the angle, they should have flown him out commercial and then immediately flown him back private and then had him hide at a rental outside of town.

The live pre-show just started and MJF vs. Wardlow was quickly advertised as happening tonight.

This match is first. MJF is in the ring.  Big “He showed up” chant.

Wardlow completely squashed MJF so let the rumor mill continue. Not sure if MJF will continue with AEW after this, but it all could be part of the work. I don’t agree with burying him though if he’s really staying, even if that was the plan all along.  Anyway, he got 10 powerbombs and a stretcher job.

Tony Khan noted during the post-show Double or Nothing Media Scrum that he would not be commenting on the MJF situation.

MJF arrived at the venue for the PPV tonight at what was described to PWInsider at "the last minute" and left the venue right after his match.

The expectation is that he will not be on the road at least for the next several TV tapings, possibly longer.

The crux of all this seems to be that MJF feels he is being underpaid for what he provides for AEW. If that is true, then MJF undervalued himself when the signed a 5-year contract when he joined AEW. It seems TK might have offered him a pay rise, but on the condition that MJF signed on for longer, rather than just bumping his pay for the remainder of his contract. If this story is true, then MJF just needs to suck it up and work through his contract and learn his lesson about properly valuing himself.

I’m still not convinced that all the contract talk going back a year isn’t a work all along. It’s hard to reconcile MJF being so unprofessional behind the scenes and online, but then selling the way he did last night to put Wardlow over like a million bucks.
