Below are some top AEW & WWE news stories of the day, involving MJF and Xavier Woods.

• AEW World Champion MJF, who once teased the possibility of jumping to WWE for a bigger payday as his All Elite Wrestling contract approached expiration in early 2024, has noticeably scaled back on discussing this potential move.

Recent reports suggest that MJF may have quietly re-signed with AEW, with one high-ranking WWE source claiming there have been “zero talks” between the two parties.

In a recent appearance on the SI Media Podcast, MJF addressed questions about his contract status, stating, “I’ve never lied. January 1, 2024”.

Reflecting on leaked information in the wrestling world, he added:

“When stuff like that gets leaked out, it makes me laugh because I remember something got leaked out about Cody (Rhodes) having secretly re-signed, and then he showed up (in WWE).

Somebody got leaked out about CM Punk and Tony Khan…I think fans leak out things that they want to be true.

I love AEW. I want to stay in AEW. After this (Worlds End) pay-per-view, it’s time to assess the situation from a professional setting.”

When pressed on whether he has officially signed a new deal with AEW, MJF replied, “Not yet”.

• Xavier Woods is currently absent from WWE’s Live Events, notably missing from recent RAW episodes alongside New Day member Kofi Kingston.

According to PWInsider, Woods is taking time off the road to recover from undisclosed injuries. Although the specific nature of the injuries and his return date are unclear, it is mentioned that he was in Birmingham, Alabama, a common location for WWE talent requiring surgery.

Woods was previously promoted for the post-Christmas live event tour but has been removed from advertisements.

His last match was on November 27th in a #1 Contenders Tag Team Turmoil Match on RAW.
