In a turn of events that has the wrestling world buzzing, Austin Gunn, son of WWE Hall of Famer Billy Gunn, publicly responded to MJF's failed attempt to recapture his AEW World Title from the clutches of Jay White, aka "Switchblade." This latest development unfolded on a recent episode of AEW Collision, where Jay White successfully debuted against AR Fox, and MJF experienced yet another setback in his pursuit to regain the gold.
The Saturday night episode saw AR Fox making his in-ring debut against Switchblade Jay White. Despite an intense, back-and-forth bout, it was White who ultimately secured the win. Following his victory, the Bullet Club Gold commenced celebrations, but they were cut short by AEW World Champion MJF, who was intent on reclaiming his stolen title belt.
MJF's Public Defeat
Jay White has been flaunting the championship ever since he pilfered it from Maxwell Jacob Friedman, better known as MJF, weeks prior. Though MJF made a gallant attempt to take back what he considers rightfully his, he fell short and suffered a moment of public humiliation, courtesy of Switchblade and his allies.
Amidst the post-match chaos, Austin Gunn took to Twitter to mock MJF’s unsuccessful reclaiming attempt. Austin tweeted, "Nice try @The_MJF, but the ROCK HARD GUARD DAWG Juice Box is always on BBB watch duty #AEWCollision belongs to the Bang Bang Gang GUNNS UP.
👆" This marks yet another chapter in the ongoing rivalry that seems to encompass not just the wrestlers themselves, but their families and associates as well.
As the son of a WWE Hall of Famer, Austin Gunn's words carry weight, not just as part of the current AEW storyline, but also in the broader wrestling ecosystem.
His tweet adds another layer of intrigue to a rivalry that shows no signs of slowing down, especially with the AEW World Title on the line. With all eyes on this high-stakes feud, fans are eagerly awaiting the next chapter, wondering if MJF can finally recapture his title, or if Jay White will continue to hold it hostage. But no matter the outcome, one thing is clear: the drama is far from over, and the wrestling world will be watching.
