AEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
MJF © VS. SAMMY GUEVARA VS. DARBY ALLIN VS. “JUNGLE BOY” JACK PERRY
Steve: Whew boy. This “pillars” story has not been great. It’s not the worst story ever, as you might be led to believe by the talk around it, but it ain’t great. It’s shown some real holes in everyone’s game, and has cooled MJF off in the process. Don’t worry, he’s going to get his heat back, and quickly. However, this has not been his or anyone’s finest hour. So who’s gonna win? Let’s rank them in order of likelihood!
4) Sammy Guevara: Sammy has no chance to win this title. They seem to be moving in a more face-like direction with him, and he’s been much better the last few weeks than he was for most of this feud. But Sammy is not ready for this spot. He may never be, though I’m happy to be proven wrong.
3) Darby Allin: I was a proponent of Darby never needing to win a belt when he first started. Darby is all about the chase. The endearing, likeable, loner underdog who you have to put in the ground to beat. His two TNT title runs showed he can be a fantastic fighting champion. You have the history with MJF too, with the headlock takeover becoming a plot point. It’s not a 0% chance he wins, but it’s not double digits either. Darby will get his moment one day, but not here.
2) “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry: This might surprise some people, since most seem to agree ‘ol Jungle Boy has been exposed the most during this feud. No one will ever question his in-ring ability, but the promos, the look, and the confidence just isn’t there. When he gets fired up and passionate, his promos are good. When he talks, he sounds like he’s memorizing a script. The problem is that’s often in the same promo. They’ve been teasing him being more heelish. I think that’s the direction they go, but not full-blown here. It’s not out of the realm he cheats or gets a fluky win. Again, more than 0% and less than 10%, but it’s not impossible given where I think they are going with his character. I think Jack takes the pin here, and is sent further down a dark path.
1) MJF: He’s a virtual lock to retain. This has not been his best work in this feud, but it seems a lot more like he’s not turning it all the way up so the others don’t get buried than anything else. There’s too much ahead of him with the return of [redacted] and the huge shows this summer. Say what you will about this feud, but this match should be terrific as all of these men are exceptional wrestlers. They also know this hasn’t been great, so they’ll be going extra hard to deliver. Also, don’t leave when the credits hit. A certain devil, may return and show his face.
Lee: MJF is not losing the AEW Title until All In at Wembley Stadium. I am 99.9999% positive of that, barring injury of course. Adam Cole seems like the next challenger up, and let’s be honest even if Cole doesn’t get your fire burning as a face, anything will be better than the mess that this Four Pillars feud ended up as. The idea of the match is a good one, and again I have little doubt the match will be good because all four guys are great wrestlers. That doesn’t excuse that this match isn’t worthy of headlining a PPV, it’s just not. This should have been built over a number of weeks to headline an episode of Dynamite, and then if you want to transition to a one vs one feud of MJF vs Darby or Jack Perry, it’s a lot cleaner and easier.
Let’s be real Sammy Guevara has no right to be in a PPV main event right now. He’s been a Jericho lackey for 90% of his AEW run, and the other 10% was a messy confusing feud with Scorpio Sky. He’s seemingly been both a heel and a face in this build, and again, it’s just needlessly messy and confusing.
Both Darby and Jack Perry have been varying degrees of bad to fine in the build to the match. Jack is heading towards a heel turn which I think will do him a world of good. Darby has deviated too far from his normal routine of being a little weirdo who makes fun of 90-second videos during his feuds to now talking about needing to be the face of AEW. Just give us back the Darby we all loved and supported, not this NXT, bought-off Wish version of Darby.
So that leaves us with Maxwell. By all reports, he is responsible for most of this feud. We all know he’s a massive WWE fan, but there comes the point where Tony Khan needs to reel back some of MJF’s more sports entertainment-like instincts. We know Maxwell can have compelling feuds even when integrating some WWE bullshit, so let’s get back to MJF cutting incredible promos and having some real hatred for his opponent. We’ve already seen MJF dropping subtle CM Punk references in his promos, so let’s hope we will soon get the next chapter in their feud. As I stated at the beginning of this preview Adam Cole seems like the logical next man up, and I think that is a pairing that will deliver both in and out of the ring. Prediction: MJF
