This past weekend on MLW Fusion, super-heel MJF finished up his run with Major League Wrestling (MLW), losing to Mance Warner in a Loser Leaves Town match. It marks the end of a run with MLW that started with his MLW debut in October of 2017, where he defeated Jimmy Yuta in his first match at MLW One Shot. You can watch his final match in the video below, starting at 32:25.
Following his loss to Warner, MLW CEO Court Bauer took to Twitter on Monday to thank MJF for his services to the company over the years saying he left “an indelible mark on MLW” and that MLW “paid a price for his presence. And we’d do it again in a heartbeat.”
For nearly 3 years @The_MJF has left an indelible mark on @MLW. Unapologetically arrogant, dynastic & morally bankrupt. There’s no ceiling for the depravity within his young, impure soul. We all paid a great price for his presence. And we’d do it again in a heartbeat. Adios, kid.

MJF has long been one of the very best heel trash talkers on the US indies and joining MLW in 2017 helped to expand on his national audience, especially when MLW got a TV deal with BeIN Sports. Since his debut, he went on to form his own stable, The Dynasty, with Richard Holliday and Alex Hammerstone, who would have lengthy feuds with The Hart Foundation‘s Teddy Hart, Davey Boy Smith Jr., and Brian Pillman Jr. In his tenure with MLW, MJF was the MLW World Middleweight Champion and won MLW World Tag Team gold with Holliday. With the departure of MJF, the Dynasty is now down one member, but with Holliday and Hammerstone still around – and the recent addition of Gino Medina to the group – the Dynasty will look to start a new chapter in MLW history. Meanwhile, MJF will not concentrate all his duties to All Elite Wrestling (AEW), where he’s been working since 2019 as well.
