Samoa Joe missing his advertised appearance at AEW's Fan Fest meet and greet event was due to a communication error.

Joe was due to meet fans at the Saturday event but did not appear, prompting speculation about whether or not he no-showed - like fellow AEW star MJF.

Bryan Alvarez, speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, cleared up this speculation, reporting there was a simple mix up and Joe had ended up 'double-booked'

Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp confirmed this report, adding that Joe was actually booked for a 'voiceover session'.

Meanwhile, speculation is rife about MJF who also did not turn up, leaving paying fans in the lurch. His status for Sunday's Double or Nothing PPV is now, seemingly, unknown with Fightful reporting that MJF had booked a flight to LEAVE Vegas on Saturday. It is unknown if he has actually left.
