Tony Khan Comments On MJF's Poker Chip, Says That It Can Be Used At Any Sanctioned Event

MJF can use his poker chip at any sanctioned AEW event.

When MJF returned to AEW at the All Out pay-per-view earlier this month, he quickly made a mark on the company as he captured the poker chip that was hanging above the ring in the Casino Ladder Match, which is a key to an AEW World Championship match.

AEW owner Tony Khan recently appeared on Barstool's Rasslin podcast. In the interview, Khan was asked by Rasslin's Brandon Walker if the poker chip works like WWE's Money In The Bank briefcase, which gives you the opportunity to demand a World Championship match whenever and wherever.

"I think any time, any sanctioned event we can certainly make it happen. In this day and age, it's a world that's uh, with live television and pay-per-view events, and all [of these other] opportunities, it's exciting to have a contender out there looming and to have this big championship match tonight on Dynamite. Certainly, it's that much more interesting to have two of the best wrestlers in the world, Bryan Danielson versus Jon Moxley one on one for the world championship, and to have a great wrestler like MJF looming in the background as a top contender with the right to challenge for the title any time. It's a very interesting championship picture right now in AEW."

On another Rasslin' interview earlier this week, MJF relayed a similar message.

"I can cash this chip in whenever I want. I’m going to be waiting in the wings. I will pick the bones of whoever wins this match. Am I going to do it at Grand Slam, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll do it the next week or the week after that. Who is to say?"

MJF was also specifically asked if the chip works like the Money In The Bank briefcase, to which he gave an interesting answer.

"I do have to have a conversation with someone beforehand, but that does not mean all parties need to be in the know of said conversation."
