One of the greatest stories in All Elite Wrestling over the past few months has been the budding best friendship of AEW World Champion MJF and Adam Cole.
The two came together as part of a Wildcard Eliminator Tournament, where they earned a shot at the AEW World Tag Team Championship held by FTR.
Cole and MJF now reign as the ROH World Tag Team Champions, with a match scheduled against The Righteous for the titles at the WrestleDream event this Sunday.
Speaking on the media call for the event, Tony Khan discussed MJF’s recent run as part of the team, claiming that he and Cole have sold an ‘ungodly amount’ of merchandise.
“You don’t have to hate him anymore because ‘he’s our scumbag.’ That’s something that has really been embraced by the fans and it’s shown because Better Than You Bay Bay have sold an ungodly amount of merchandise and they continue to rack up that merch money for us, which is awesome. They get these massive reactions and its befitting of a top star and, in this case, a fan favorite.”
The status of the match at WrestleDream is currently up in the air due to Cole suffering an injury on this past week’s AEW Dynamite Grand Slam show.
