MJF Retains AEW World Championship in “4 Pillars” Match

MJF managed to retain his AEW World Championship towards the opposite three members of the “4 Pillars” on Sunday evening on the Double or Nothing pay-per-view in Las Vegas. The ultimate sequence noticed Sammy Guevara nail Jack Perry with a GTH, just for Darby Allin to shove Guevara off the highest rope when he tried a dive. Allin then put Perry in place for a Coffin Drop, however Friedman ran in and draped the AEW title over Perry to harm Allin when he made impression. So as to add insult to harm, Friedman then stood Allin up and hit a Headlock Takeover to pin him, calling again to their earlier match the place Max cheated to beat Allin with the identical elementary transfer.

Allin spoke with ComicBook previous to the match and mentioned his distaste for the “pillars” idea, one thing Friedman first talked about again in 2021. From that time on, followers continued to group the 4 collectively although they have been constantly at odds with one another. 

“Actually, on the subject of pillars, I do not like that phrase,” Allin mentioned. “As a result of it makes us really feel like we’re above everybody else within the firm and whoever’s within the firm that’s experience or die with AEW is a pillar in my eyes. Cannot simply say 4 guys are a pillar. To me, that is type of BS. I by no means preferred that. It makes us really feel like we’re boastful or we’re like, ‘Oh, this firm would not be something with out us.’ The corporate’s simply fantastic. And anyone who needs to bust ass and present that AEW is the very best, they’re pillars in my eyes. In order that cute little catchphrase that Max got here up with you, he can maintain it. This ain’t about pillars to me on Sunday. It is about 4 guys which can be from floor one and AEW gave a possibility to point out individuals precisely what we are able to do. We do not want the phrase pillars. I do not care about that.”
