MJF (Maxwell Jacob Friedman) is getting the title shot on account of being at #1 position in singles AEW Rankings. Also, MJF has been undefeated in AEW singles matches till now, but the same goes for Moxley also.
Last week on AEW Dynamite, MJF started his campaign against Jon Moxley with “State of the Industry” address. At the end of the Presidential campaign type address, he claimed that Moxley is a dictator and holding the company back since he is not able to lead the company into new era. He then called out Moxley for the World title match at AEW All Out.
Moxley won the title at AEW Revolution PPV earlier in the year. He has since defended it successfully against Jake Hager (Dynamite), Brodie Lee (Double or Nothing) and Brain Cage (Fight for the Fallen). Although, before facing MJF at AEW All Out, Moxley will have to defend the title against Darby Allin on Dynamite this week.
Earlier, MJF called out Moxley on Twitter also and especially emphasized on Moxley’s Paradigm Shift finisher. May be we will see some angle regarding the finisher during the buildup to this match.
