Tonight’s the night, AEW Double or Nothing 2020 is soon upon us! In a match between two men who are both expected to define AEW’s long-term future, MJF goes one-on-one with Jungleboy here tonight! You can expect the same live coverage of the event as always, plus a preview of every match on the card! There’s plenty to talk about so let’s get underway!
MJF (Maxwell Jacob Friedman) vs. Jungleboy
At this point, I don’t think there’s much debate. Maxwell Jacob Friedman is the future of AEW and nothing short of a tragedy will prevent that from happening. He’s already in the running for their top heel going and his main event run hasn’t even truly started in earnest yet, though he is getting there. I firmly believe he’ll be AEW World Champion before the year is out. My personal projection, and what I would do, is have him dethrone Jon Moxley at AEW Full Gear in November. Even if I’m off by a bit, it’s hardly a hot take to say it’ll happen sooner or later. He’s going to be the top heel going forward.
But the funny thing about this match is, and I’ve probably basically written this exact preview before but it remains true, Jungleboy is expected by many to be among their top babyfaces going in the years to come. Admittedly, it’s less open-and-shut. Jungle is a natural babyface, a super talented dude and the Jurassic Express have been a popular triumvirate since day one. But at the moment it definitely feels like Darby Allin has a major headstart and will probably be a headliner first. It’s also pretty easy to forget that Hangman Page is still quite young as well and he’s verrrrry close to being in that #1 babyface position already. So Jungleboy’s gonna have a lot of competition in the years to come.
Still. We’re looking at a match-up that, even with as young as these guys are, is already big enough to get on the main card of a PPV. In a couple of years time, it wouldn’t be at all strange to see the main event one. It’s definitely a cool thing to be able to witness their rises to the top. But as I said above, MJF is on a much faster track than Jungleboy and I can’t imagine they’ll derail him right now. MJF to win, retain his undefeated streak and get one step closer to that world title.
