Since MJF returned to AEW programming at the end of the All Out pay-per-view event, he has been getting cheered by the fans in attendance at AEW shows. According to the early betting odds for this match, MJF is heavily favored to become the AEW World Heavyweight Champion.
Ahead of the match, MJF has been putting in the work in the gym and is in fantastic shape, something he showed off with this post on Twitter:
As noted earlier this week, the top AEW star has joined the cast of “The Iron Claw,” a film about the Von Erich family.
It’s unclear what MJF’s role in the film will be, but this will mark his first feature film. The drama is set to be financed and produced by A24, while Sean Durkin, who wrote the script, will be directing it.
Jeremy Allen White, Zac Efron, Harris Dickinson, Holt McCallany, Maura Tierney, and Lily James make up the rest of the cast.
