MJF is sure to be a top star in All Elite Wrestling, but he is also signed with Major League Wrestling. It turns out that he was able to do this thanks to a very useful loophole in his MLW contract.
While speaking to Talk Is Jericho, MJF explained why he decided to sign with AEW and not go to WWE. He also went into some detail about how he is able to be signed to both AEW and MLW at the same time.
“At the time I was signed to Major League Wrestling. I had actually signed a three-year deal with MLW […] in my contract it stated that I could not work for WWE. At no point in the contract did it state anything about AEW because AEW was not even a thing yet. It did not exist.”
MJF said that once they figured out the logistics of things then MLW management was totally cool with him going to AEW. That was a very wise move because while he’s appearing for both television shows having MJF around will only bring that much more attention to MLW’s product.
