As AEW continues with MJF’s world title reign, the question of who will eventually dethrone him and take the AEW World Heavyweight Championship becomes a topic of speculation among fans. Fortunately, AEW has a wealth of options to choose from for this momentous occasion.
Let’s take a closer look at some potential candidates:
Many fans see Darby Allin as MJF’s natural rival, the Batman to his Joker, or the Superman to his Lex Luthor. Their ongoing feud and history in AEW make Darby an obvious choice for some fans. Additionally, his status as one of the core “AEW Pillars” alongside MJF, Jungle Boy & Sammy Guevara, makes Darby a key player in the long-term future of AEW. As a fan-favorite wrestler, giving him a world title push could be a compelling option for AEW.
Few wrestlers in AEW have a deeper connection with the fans than Eddie Kingston. His relatable persona has endeared him to many, and seeing him win the world title, especially in his hometown of New York, would be a heartfelt moment for fans. Both MJF and Kingston excel in delivering powerful promos. The verbal battles leading up to a world title match between them would undoubtedly be riveting television. The in-ring clash between the two would also be exciting to witness.
Another contender for dethroning MJF could be Kenny Omega, who has already proven to be a major draw for AEW. His previous world title reign was a success, and another run as champion could be a safe bet for the company. Omega’s world title defenses, especially as a babyface, would undoubtedly provide captivating content for fans both on weekly shows and pay-per-view events. However, the uncertainty surrounding Omega’s contract status, as he is in the last year of his AEW deal and has yet to renew, makes this option less certain.
Overall, AEW is in a fortunate position with multiple talented wrestlers who could potentially dethrone MJF and take the AEW World Heavyweight Championship. Each candidate brings their own unique qualities and storylines, making the future of AEW’s world title scene an exciting one.
