In a highly anticipated encounter, MJF, the reigning AEW World Champion, is gearing up to defend his title against the formidable Samoa Joe at the inaugural AEW Worlds End pay-per-view, slated for December 30. Before these two titans clash for the coveted championship, fans are in for a treat as both MJF and Joe are scheduled to share the ring in a promotional segment on the upcoming "AEW Dynamite: Holiday Bash" episode.

This Wednesday night, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, will be buzzing with excitement as these two wrestling powerhouses prepare to deliver what promises to be a riveting exchange. MJF's decision to grant Joe a world title shot stems from a pivotal moment at the AEW Full Gear pre-show.

In an unexpected twist, "The Samoan Submission Machine" stepped in to aid MJF in retaining the ROH World Tag Team Championship. This came about after Joe offered to replace the injured Adam Cole, with the stipulation of getting a shot at MJF's championship in return.

The history between these two athletes is not new, as Joe had previously challenged MJF for the AEW World Championship during "Dynamite: Grand Slam" in September. Adding to their tangled narrative, a recent episode of "Dynamite" saw Joe rescue MJF from an onslaught by four mysterious masked assailants.

This incident led to the enigmatic Devil character challenging MJF and Joe to a tag team match against two of the assailants—a match that ultimately did not take place the following week due to MJF being attacked backstage.

Dynamite: Diverse Match Lineup

This week's "Dynamite" episode is also packed with other thrilling matchups. The final round of the Continental Classic Gold League features key bouts, including Jon Moxley facing off against Jay White, Swerve Strickland battling RUSH, and Mark Briscoe taking on Jay Lethal.

In addition, the women's division will see high-stakes action with Saraya and Riho competing in a No.1 contenders match for the AEW Women's World Championship. Lastly, Roderick Strong steps into the ring to face Komander, adding another layer of excitement to an already stacked card.

As the wrestling world buzzes with anticipation, all eyes are on Oklahoma City for what promises to be an unforgettable episode of "AEW Dynamite: Holiday Bash." With high-profile matches and intense rivalries coming to a head, this event is sure to captivate audiences and set the stage for the upcoming AEW Worlds End pay-per-view.
