– During the Double or Nothing weekend, MJF legitimately no-showed a fan fest. This came after months of rumors about the backstage tension between MJF and AEW owner Tony Khan about MJF’s contract and payment he felt he should have, as well as doing an interview with Ariel Helwani without telling management.

On the June 1 edition of Dynamite, MJF cut a worked shoot promo about not being respected by the fans and Khan. The segment ended with MJF demanding to be fired by Khan, calling Khan a “****** mark”, his microphone being cut off, quickly fading to commercial, and the commentators not referencing the situation after the break. The next day, his profile was removed from AEW’s website and his merchandise was pulled on AEW’s merchandise site as part of the storyline.

After returning a few months later, he won a ladder match to have the opportunity to cash in for a AEW World Championship match at any time. He faced Jon Moxley at Full Gear, and had promised William Regal not to use his Dynamite Diamond Ring to win the match. Regal turned on Moxley by handing MJF a pair of brass knuckles to win the title.

At AEW All In 2023 from London at Wembley Stadium, MJF won the ROH World Tag Team Championship with Adam Cole on the Zero Hour pre-show, and then later defended his AEW World Championship against Adam Cole in the main event.
