World Title Match set for AEW Worlds End PPV

Samoa Joe challenging MJF for the World Championship is official at the AEW World’s Ends pay-per-view.

Back on the November 8 episode of Dynamite after successfully defending the Ring of Honor World TV Championship, Joe relinquished the title, saying he wanted to focus on going after the AEW World Championship.

Below is an excerpt from Alex Kahrs’ AEW Dynamite recap of how the World Title Match came about.

Back at ringside, Better Than You Bay Bay make their way to the ring as MJF talks about his match against Jay White at Full Gear, giving the Switchblade respect but saying nobody is on the level of the Devil. He hypes up his accomplishments as champion…but that none of it would be possible without his brochacho for life, Adam Cole.

Cole gives us a storytime about what Full Gear was like for him before MJF speaks up again, running down whoever is running around in his Devil mask…before the Devil shows up on screen, just laughing at the World Champion.

Samoa Joe’s music hits, and the former ROH World Television Champion is ready for the championship rematch that was promised to him for helping MJF defend the ROH World Tag Team Championship at Full Gear Zero Hour. MJF starts to tell him no but is convinced by Cole to go through with the promise.

The champ tells Joe that he wouldn’t be the first ROH legend he’s beaten in Chicago…twice…so if Joe wants his title rematch we can have it right here, tonight in Chicago! Joe denies this, saying he doesn’t want MJF to complain he wasn’t 100 percent…but by Worlds End he should be fresh and healed up enough to go.

MJF confirms what Joe is asking, having a go at the Chicago crowd in the process, before they shake hands on the deal. MJF runs Joe down, but the challenger won’t be riled up by it. He calls MJF his “property” and promises to take good care of him, making sure he’s at his best going into Worlds End…so he can beat him down all the more in front of his friends and family in Long Island!

AEW Worlds End will take place on Saturday, December 30 from the Nassau Veterans War Memorial Coliseum in Long Island, New York.

The finals of the Continental Classic will also take place at the pay-per-view.
