Who will be the one to dethrone MJF?

Read Time:2 Minute, 34 Second

One of the fun things about world championship reigns, is speculating who will eventually dethrone them and become the next world champion for a promotion.

Many fans are already speculating who they would like to see as the person to finally dethrone MJF and end his reign of terror in AEW. The good news is that there are several interesting option AEW and Tony Khan could go with…

Darby Allin

You could say Darby Allin has been MJF’s biggest rival in AEW, The Austin to his Rock. It would make sense for Darby Allin to defeat him and allow that next big step Allin has been waiting for. It would also be a pretty good story as his mentor Sting helps him get to the world title.

Allin is without doubt the biggest favorite, according to fans, and feels like the right person to take the world title from him. This also feels like the direction AEW will most likely go with, considering AEW has been saving this match for quite some time.

Eddie Kingston

No wrestler has a deeper connection with the AEW fanbase than Eddie Kingston. Both MJF and Eddie Kingston have hinted about a potential program to take place down the line, and it makes perfect sense to book a program between these two. There’s no man that can match MJF on the mic, other than Eddie Kingston, and it would be a nice story for AEW to tell.

As of this writing, it feels like Kingston is the second favorite to take the title off MJF. But one of the things we always have to remember in wrestling, is that plans can change…

Konosuke Takeshita

The rise of Konosuke Takeshita in AEW is so good to watch. Takeshita has been able to connect with fans with his in-ring abilities, and always steals the show. It’s not outlandish to think Konosuke Takeshita will be a world champion in AEW, and his match with MJF proves he should be in the conversation.

Konosuke Takeshita is currently the dark horse of this race, and it doesn’t feel like the time with him is right. It’s pretty safe to say that Tony Khan will take some time with Takeshita, and book him strong first. Maybe even win one of the secondary titles (TNT Championship or the All-Atlantic Championship) before he challenges for the world title.

Hangman Page

A safe bet for Tony Khan and AEW. A previous world champion, good connection with the crowd and always does good in terms of TV ratings. Once his story with Jon Moxley is finished, there’s no doubt that he’ll be one of MJF’s next challengers down the line. It all feels like Hangman and MJF will cross paths at Double or Nothing but it’s too early to tell.

Hangman getting the world title back is an interesting story to tell and opens a lot of possibilities in terms of matches and programs for the next few months.

Who do you think will take the belt off of MJF? Let us know in the comments below…
