• Warner Bros. Discovery Makes A Move In The MJF Situation
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF cut his own version of the pipebomb promo.
MJF ripped Tony Khan for paying ex-WWE guys more money than him, even though he’s been carrying the company since the beginning and no one is better than him.
MJF also questioned if he would get treated better if he was an ex-WWE wrestler.
AEW’s Social Media accounts later unfollowed MJF and his merch has also been removed from AEW Shop.
Also, AEW has removed MJF from the TV intros of Dynamite & Rampage.
In an update on this situation, PWInsider is reporting that Warner Bros. Discovery has now removed MJF from all promotional material and commercials:
“A source at Warner Bros. Discovery confirmed that late last week, there was an edict issued to remove MJF from all promotional spots and commercials for AEW programming going forward.
MJF is currently being edited out of any TBS and TNT spots he appears in with different AEW footage replacing him.
We are told that the existing spots with MJF have been officially pulled but it’s possible some may still pop up as they transition to the newer spots.”

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend Mick Foley celebrates his 57th birthday today.
After doing several jobs as “Jack Foley” on WWF TV in 1986 & 1987, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1990 and from that point onwards made a name for himself as “Cactus Jack”.
After spending some time in ECW from 1994 till early 1996, he signed a WWF contract and became known as “Mankind”, a character that received a great push, including a clean win over The Undertaker at the King of the Ring 1996 PPV.
In 1997, Foley also brought 2 other characters to the World Wrestling Federation: his alter egos “Cactus Jack” and “Dude Love”, thus becoming the only man in history, who officially entered 3 times in a single 30-man Royal Rumble match.
Despite his official retirement in 2000, Foley wrestled for several more years, including a final TNA run from 2008 to 2011, before he retired for real.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICK FOLEY!
