On Sunday night, MJF competed for Beyond Wrestling at Paddy’s Beach Club – Westerly, RI against Josh Briggs in the main event; marking his final appearance on the independent scene before AEW debuts on TNT on October 2nd. On the way to the ring, he could be heard saying “Thank god it’s the last time”.
MJF would go on to lose to Briggs by pin-fall after being hit with a Chokeslam Powerbomb. Following the match, the crowd booed him out of the building as he reciprocated with an extended middle finger. For a more detailed account of the show, you can find a write-up here: “All Hands On Deck”
