AEW: MJF on Wellness Check During DoN Weekend, Red Velvet Injury Update, Dark Elevation Results

MJF Comments on AEW Doing a Wellness Check on Him During Double or Nothing 2022 Weekend

As noted before, MJF was involved in a no-show incident at a AEW fan event prior to AEW’s Double or Nothing 2022 event this past May in Las Vegas, Nevada. Following the June 1st AEW Dynamite show, MJF was sent home and did not return to AEW until this past September’s All Out 2022 due to the fallout from this incident and pay-related issues.

A recent episode of the Notsam Wrestling podcast had MJF as the guest. One of the topics discussed included MJF revealing that AEW officials had performed a wellness check at his hotel room in Las Vegas after they were unable to get in touch with him at the time. MJF also stated that his no-show incident had cost AEW around $10,000.

“When I stayed in said hotel room, they did a wellness check on me and the AEW security, this is a very true story, tried to break my door down. At the time, I had already left. They did the check, he literally went to kick my door down on a wellness check. That was everybody’s fear.”

Red Velvet Injury Status Update

As noted before, Red Velvet has been out of action since this past June due to an unknown injury.

A recent K&S Wrestlefest virtual fan signing event had Red Velvet and Kiera Hogan as the guests. One of the topics discussed included Velvet providing an update on her injury and rehab status.

“Currently right now for myself, I’m just looking to heal and come back because, you know, it’s that time. So…”

Velvet and Hogan also gave their thoughts about being viewed by fans as just being lackeys to Jade Cargill in The Baddies.

Velvet – “Yeah, that’s the term [lackeys] people use because they’re haters and they wish they were on TV or getting stepped on by Jade [Cargill]…”

Hogan – “I’m not a side piece, I’m not a lackey, I’m not a groupie, I’m not her little b*tch girl. I’m really not. I feel like me and Red at the time were looking for something interesting to do and we were like, ‘Why not be Baddies? Why not align ourselves with the undefeated Jade and help her out?’ Maybe she needed some backup. I’m the hottest flame, chef baddie here. We’re all different, we’re all our own different individual selves.”

Velvet – “Collectively, we make The Baddies, we’re the group. We’re here to show people dominance and what it is to be beautiful, bad, talented and not be afraid to show that. Not hide behind anything so whoever wants to sit here and call us lackeys then show up to the next signing and say it to my face.”
