MJF Denies He Has Signed An AEW Extension

MJF on his AEW contract

Following his return at September's All Out pay-per-view, MJF announced that he had signed a new deal with All Elite Wrestling that pays him an "absurd amount of money" without having to put pen to paper on an extension. 

Friedman has continued to discuss the Great Bidding War of 2024 since his return, but speculation has hinted that MJF did actually sign an extension with AEW as part of his new deal.

In response to the speculation, though, Friedman denied he signed an extension, noting his future is ultimately up to AEW. 

"I know the truth. I most certainly haven't. I think that wrestling fans are kind of just doing that to kid themselves. So maybe they feel a little less heartbroken as things are going on. What happens after the fact [in 2024] is entirely up to AEW management if they are willing to shell out the proper amount of money. Now I'll tell you this, bonus and brownie points from Tony Khan for paying me what he's paying me now with no extension. He did not have to do that," MJF told the New York Post.

MJF has repeatedly said he will sign with the highest bidder, whether that be All Elite Wrestling, WWE, or even Hollywood following his casting as Lance Von Erich in the upcoming 'The Iron Claw' movie
