MJF On Not Closing AEW DON: 'I'm Good' On Not Rolling Around In Jon Moxley's Blood

MJF successfully defended his AEW World Championship Sunday night at Double or Nothing, seeing off the other three pillars of "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry, Darby Allin, and Sammy Guevara in the process. Although, the champion didn't headline the event. That distinction belonged to The Elite and Blackpool Combat Club, who faced off in Anarchy in the Arena. When asked during the media scrum if that hurt to not close out the show, MJF had a very simple answer.

"No, no," he stated. "Why the f*** would I want to roll around in Jon Moxley's blood? I'm f***ing good on that, okay? No thanks!"

Going a step further, MJF suggested it doesn't really matter if a world title match headlines an event these days. "Also, realistically, whether it's this company or WWE, I think the world title having to go on last kind of is dead in wrestling," he added. "And also now, how many pay-per-views has the world title not gone on last in this company?" he questioned, turning to Tony Khan. As it happens, three of the five AEW Double or Nothing events have ended with a multi-person, non-title match. And only one of the five — Double or Nothing 2022, which saw CM Punk challenge Adam "Hangman" Page — showcased the title in the main event.

MJF didn't stop without taking a shot at the competitors who closed out the show, of course. "I'd rather not run around in all that f***ing mid blood," he continued. "Like, can we, can we get real real quick? That's f***ing disgusting." When he singled out Wheeler Yuta, Khan mentioned that Yuta wasn't one of the wrestlers who bled, to which MJF calmly replied "Wow! Congrats?" The 27-year-old has held the AEW World Championship since last November, when he defeated Moxley at Full Gear.
