MJF Reportedly Suffers “Severe Injury” at AEW Fight for the Fallen

It looks like MJF suffered a “severe elbow injury” at last night’s AEW Fight for the Fallen event during the six-man tag team match, which saw MJF, Shawn Spears and Sammy Guevara defeat Jimmy Havoc, Joey Janela and Darby Allin.

Inspire Pro Wrestling has announced that MJF, who holds their Pure Prestige Title, was pulled from tonight’s event to prevent any further injury to the elbow.

You can see their announcement and tweets below:

“BREAKING NEWS: AS THE ADDAGE GOES, “CARD SUBJECT TO CHANGE.” At approximately 4:07 this morning, INSPIRE PRO was delivered the unfortunate news that PURE PRESTIGE CHAMPION MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN sustained a severe elbow injury at last night’s FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN event. With MJF scheduled to appear at next week’s TRIPLEMANIA, the decision was made to pull him from tonight’s event to prevent any further injury. THEREFORE, MJF will NOT be defending his PURE PRESTIGE CHAMPIONSHIP tonight against RICKY STARKS. With MJF soon to become exclusive to AEW, the opportunity to reschedule the match is not possible. Therefore, MJF and INSPIRE have come to a mutual agreement to VACATE the PURE PRESTIGE TITLE. TONIGHT’S MAIN EVENT will STILL determine who the rightful PURE PRESTIGE CHAMPION WILL BE. RICKY STARKS will wrestle for the vacant title against a competitor TO BE ANNOUNCED at our event.”
