MJF is undoubtedly one of the best heels in the pro wrestling world right now and his character has only continued to develop during his time in AEW. He quickly cemented himself as a top star and has been a mainstay of AEW television since the debut of AEW Dynamite back in 2019.

He is dedicated to his character as he never breaks kayfabe, inside or outside the squared circle, and his promo skills only continue to improve with each day.

Now it seems a WWE Hall Of Famer certainly has an interesting comparison for MJF. While speaking to DAZN, Jim Ross talked about MJF’s career in AEW, where Ross stated that MJF reminded him of a young Paul Heyman.

“MJF is a prodigy. He’s special. He’s a lot like a young, and I worked with him, a young Paul Heyman. He has a great gift for the English language. He has a heel’s mindset. He’s very clever, very creative. I think he’s as good a talker as there is in pro wrestling right now from my ears.”


The Pinnacle is set to square off against The Inner Circle in a Stadium Stampede match at AEW Double Or Nothing on May 30th. If the Inner Circle loses, they will have to disband forever. We will have to see if The Pinnacle will defeat the Inner Circle once again or not.
