• Update On What MJF Was Actually Doing During The Time Of His Scheduled AEW Meet & Greet
MJF has been teasing for a while that he’s unhappy in AEW and wants to leave the company when his contract expires in 2024, and possibly sign with WWE.
According to PWInsider, MJF no-showed Saturday’s AEW Double Or Nothing Meet & Greet and the company couldn’t get in contact with him:
“The word making the rounds at the event is that he legitimately did not attend and that the promotion was not able to get in contact with him. For fans who had paid for MJF autographs and photos, AEW staff did their best to make good to them, including offering exchanges to other talents.”
MJF was actually playing the slots at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino at the time of his scheduled Meet & Greet with fans.
In an update from PWInsider, MJF is still in Las Vegas for tonight’s Double Or Nothing PPV, where he’s scheduled to face Wardlow:
“We are told MJF is still in Las Vegas as of this writing, which would mean he did not fly back to the East Coast, which until an hour or so ago remained a possibility.
For those who are asking if the situation is a work, that is a big NO, but obviously everything can be retroactively converted into one if everyone gets on the same page.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Headshrinker Samu (Real name: Samula Anoa’i) celebrates his 59th birthday today.
Samu first wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation in 1983 & 1984 as “Samula”, the 3rd member of The Wild Samoans, alongside his father Afa and his uncle Sika.
From late 1988 till the summer of 1990, Samu wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he teamed up with his cousins Fatu (later known as Rikishi) and The Samoan Savage (formerly known as Tama / The Tonga Kid) as “The Samoan SWAT Team”.
He again formed a Tag Team with Fatu, when they returned to the WWF in 1992 as “The Headshrinkers”, managed by his father Afa.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMU!
