MJF to Defend AEW World Title Against Samoa Joe at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam – The stage is set for an explosive showdown as MJF prepares to defend his coveted AEW World Championship against Samoa Joe at the highly anticipated AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam event.
This epic clash was officially announced during the September 13 episode of AEW Dynamite. In the night’s main event, Samoa Joe demonstrated his dominance by defeating Roderick Strong in the finals of the AEW Grand Slam World Title Eliminator Tournament. Although Strong displayed resilience, he ultimately succumbed to Joe’s Coquina Clutch, tapping out and solidifying Joe’s path to championship contention.
In a post-match statement, Samoa Joe sent a resounding message to MJF, vowing to strip the reigning champion of everything he holds dear.
The drama didn’t end there, however. Roderick Strong was left incapacitated, collapsing in the ring as Adam Cole made his dramatic entrance. Strong was subsequently stretchered to the backstage area, leaving fans on edge. Meanwhile, Cole engaged in a heated confrontation with The Kingdom faction as they made their way up the ramp. Seizing the opportune moment, Samoa Joe blindsided Cole, locking him in the Coquina Clutch, and reaffirming his determination to seize all that MJF treasures.
Samoa Joe’s journey to the finals of the AEW Grand Slam World Title Eliminator Tournament was nothing short of impressive. He earned his spot by defeating Jeff Hardy on the September 8 episode of AEW Rampage and secured his place in the finals with a victory over Penta El Zero Miedo on the September 9 episode of AEW Collision. Roderick Strong, on the other hand, battled his way to the finals by overcoming tough opponents such as Trent Beretta and Darby Allin.<!– /wp:
