AEW President Tony Khan appeared on the Barstool Sports “Rasslin’” podcast and commented on when MJF can cash in on his AEW World Title recording of the Casino Battle Royale at All Out.

Khan was asked when MJF can cash in on his shot at the AEW world title, which is now vacant but will be decided tonight at the Grand Slam edition of Dynamite, when Bryan Danielson takes on Jon Moxley.

“[MJF] He’s really loomed over the championship since he returned to All Out and won the Casino Ladder mach meaning he’ll have a shot at the world title whenever he wants, I’ll approve that match,” Khan said.

Khan added that the cash-in can take place at any sanctioned AEW event.

“I think we can definitely make it happen at any time, any sanctioned event,” Khan said. He continued: “With live television, pay-per-view events, all these opportunities, it’s exciting to have a contender looming and to have this big championship game tonight on Dynamite, it’s certainly 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 in the background as a top contender with the right to fight for the title at any time. is a very interesting championship shot in AEW at the moment.”

Khan also made it clear that he has to approve the title match before it happens. It was not clear whether a title shot will be penalized if MJF attempts a cash-in similar to what we see in WWE with the Money In the Bank briefcase.

Friday’s Grand Slam edition of AEW Rampage will feature a Golden Ticket Battle Royale for a future taping of the AEW world title, featuring names such as Rush, Penta El Zero M, Adam Page, Lance Archer, Jay Lethal, The Dark Order and others. Khan explained the difference between the Casino Battle Royale chip and the Golden Ticket.

“The winner of [The Golden Ticket Battle Royale] gets a title shot at a fixed time and place. They have an appointment with a world champion. That’s how it differs. You have someone out there looming with a title shot, this is going to be a set time and place. Because someone comes up with a title photo, you have to go ahead and have plans, have a set calendar, and when that person chooses to take that opportunity, it happens. It’s a very interesting situation to watch, a looming challenger there after the great Bryan Danielson vs. Jon Moxley World Championship race at Dynamite,” he said.

MJF also appeared on “Rasslin'” this week, commenting on when he might be able to cash in. He teased a potential cash-in at Dynamite tonight.

‘I’ll be waiting in the wings. I have this chip, I can exchange this chip whenever I want,” he said. “I’ll 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 next week in Philly, maybe I’ll do it the week after in DC.”

MJF was asked if the Casino Battle Royale chip has “Money in the Bank qualities”.

“So I do have to have a conversation with someone beforehand, yes. But that doesn’t mean all parties should be aware of that conversation,” he said.
