MJF vs. Brandon Cutler set for AEW on TNT premiere


Another match has been added to the card for AEW's television debut.

On this week's episode of Being the Elite, it was announced that MJF vs. Brandon Cutler will take place on the AEW on TNT premiere. In storyline, The Young Bucks booked Cutler in the match after being bullied by MJF on Being the Elite.

This will be Cutler's second match for AEW. He also took part in the Casino Battle Royale on the Double or Nothing pre-show. The Young Bucks offering Cutler a full-time deal with AEW as a wrestler and executive content producer was shown on a Being the Elite episode in May.

MJF was also an entrant in the Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing. Hangman Page defeated Jimmy Havoc, Jungle Boy, and MJF in a four-way match at Fyter Fest, then Shawn Spears, Sammy Guevara & MJF defeated Darby Allin, Joey Janela & Havoc at Fight for the Fallen.

At All Out, MJF was in Cody Rhodes' corner for Cody's match against Spears.

The Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. is hosting the AEW on TNT premiere on Wednesday, October 2. It will also feature Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks vs. Chris Jericho and two mystery partners, Nyla Rose vs. Riho to determine the first AEW Women's Champion, and Cody vs. Guevara.
