Thankfully, Maxwell Jacob Friedman seems to be fine following a scary-looking bump he took during the AEW Trios main event at AEW Dynamite: Holiday Bash 2021 on Wednesday evening.
During the headline bout of the evening, which saw CM Punk, Sting and Darby Allin pick up a victory over The Pinnacle trio of MJF and FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler), there was a spot where Sting launched MJF over the top-rope.
Presumably the intention was for “The Icon” to toss The Pinnacle leader onto FTR in a high spot to pump up the crowd heading into the planned finish of the bout. Instead, Sting sent MJF flying out-of-control, and the AEW star landed awkwardly on the top of his head on the floor.
He would get up without any issues and finish the match as scheduled, and from all signs, he seemed fine once the show wrapped up. After the second-annual AEW Holiday Bash special event, MJF took to social media to address the bump.
“I’m fine,” wrote MJF via his official Twitter page. “It’s [CM] Punk you should be worried about. [He] stayed away from me like a coward,” he added.
The remark was a reference to his own strategy in the AEW Trios bout, which saw him avoiding any contact at all costs, something that was consistently pointed out on the broadcast by the commentary team throughout the match.

I’m fine. It’s punk you should be worried about. Stayed away from me like a coward!
