In a masterful display of deception on Wednesday's "AEW Dynamite," the wrestling world witnessed the unraveling of what seemed like a straightforward narrative in the ROH World Tag Team Championship. MJF, one-half of the reigning champions, was left to fend for himself in a high-stakes match when his partner, Samoa Joe, appeared to be sidelined due to injury.
However, the night's events took an unexpected turn, leading to a shocking reveal that has sent ripples through the wrestling community. The main event, eagerly anticipated by fans, took a dramatic twist when Samoa Joe was ostensibly incapacitated moments before the match.
This sudden development left MJF, a formidable competitor in his own right, to single-handedly defend the coveted ROH World Tag Team Titles. Despite his valiant efforts, MJF found himself overwhelmed by the enigmatic Devil's Masked Men.
In an ironic twist of fate, one of the masked assailants executed MJF's signature Heat Seeker finishing move, securing the pinfall and usurping the ROH Tag Titles.
Joe's Stunning Deceit
The climax of the evening came when the victorious yet unidentified champions were abruptly confronted.
An ostensibly injured Samoa Joe emerged, chasing off the new champions before they could be unmasked. In a stunning revelation, Joe disclosed that his injury was a ruse, a clever stratagem to lure MJF into a false sense of security.
The night culminated with Joe launching an unexpected assault on MJF, revealing an alliance with The Devil. This intricate web of betrayal dates back to August 27, when MJF first claimed the ROH World Tag Team Championship alongside his then-partner Adam Cole.
Following Cole's injury in September, an improbable alliance formed between MJF and Samoa Joe. Initially, this partnership seemed to be beneficial, with Joe aiding MJF in warding off attacks from The Devil and his masked cohorts.
However, the foundation of this alliance crumbled spectacularly on Wednesday night, leading to a pivotal confrontation at the upcoming AEW Worlds End event, where a now vulnerable MJF will face off against Samoa Joe, who has emerged not only as a master strategist but also as a formidable contender for the AEW World Championship.
This stunning turn of events in the wrestling world underscores the unpredictable and electrifying nature of the sport, where alliances are fragile and the quest for glory often leads to unexpected alliances and betrayals.
As fans eagerly await the next chapter in this saga, the wrestling community continues to buzz with speculation and anticipation for what promises to be an unforgettable showdown at AEW Worlds End.
