MJF sustained an injury at Fight For The Fallen.
Britt Baker took to social media today to announce that she suffered a concussion during her tag match at AEW's Fight For The Fallen show and it has also been announced by the 'Inspire Pro Wrestling' promotion that MJF sustained an injury at Fight For The Fallen as well. The promotion pushed out three tweets, noting that MJF injured his elbow at AEW's July 13th event and with MJF also slated to work an AAA TV taping this week, the decision was made to pull him from the Inspire Pro Wrestling show to prevent further injury and MJF has agreed to relinquish the Pure Prestige Championship.
With MJF scheduled to appear at next week’s TRIPLEMANIA, the decision was made to pull him from tonight’s event to prevent any further injury. THEREFORE, MJF will NOT be defending his PURE PRESTIGE CHAMPIONSHIP tonight against RICKY STARKS.— Inspire Pro Wrestling (@InspireProWres) July 14, 2019
TONIGHT’S MAIN EVENT will STILL determine who the rightful PURE PRESTIGE CHAMPION WILL BE. RICKY STARKS will wrestle for the vacant title against a competitor TO BE ANNOUNCED at our event. pic.twitter.com/Tezhrjz1cc— Inspire Pro Wrestling (@InspireProWres) July 14, 2019
NEVERTHELESS, we’ll still be delivering one hell of a card tonight with a few surprises along the way, and there will be a NEW PURE PRESTIGE CHAMPION at the end of the night. BE THERE TO SEE WHO WILL FACE RICKY STARKS to determine the NEW CHAMPION!— Inspire Pro Wrestling (@InspireProWres) July 14, 2019
MJF was a part of the winning trio last night at Fight For The Fallen when he, Shawn Spears and Sammy Guevara defeated Joey Janela, Darby Allin and Jimmy Havoc. To hear some thoughts about that match and the entire Fight For The Fallen show, check out Fightful's post-show review podcast.
