He makes his AEW debut on Dynamite: Fyter Fest

With a pizza cutter in hand, he made his way on to the stage as MJF announced he’d be Chris Jericho’s next opponent in the Labour Of Jericho series (which takes place next week at Fight For The Fallen).
It’ll be a No DQ Match, and afterwards Jericho said he’d be bringing out his Painmaker persona from NJPW.
Gage took to Twitter to respond to both his AEW debut and the match announcement.
“Thanks everybody. I got nothing new to say that I haven’t already told you. I do this s*** for my fans. It’s real,” Gage wrote. “I got no family, you’re all I got left in this world and (the) only reason I’m still here.”
What is the meaning of MDK?

His brutal, and often bloody, brand of wrestling has made him a legend among certain wrestling groups, who he refers to as his MDK gang.
