MJF has cemented himself as one of the best heels in the modern-day pro wrestling world and there is a very good reason for that. He quickly cemented himself as a top star and remains one of the highlights of AEW television since the debut of AEW Dynamite back in 2019.
The Salt of the Earth is dedicated to his character as he never breaks kayfabe, inside or outside the squared circle. His dedication to his credit has won him over with fans who simply love to hate him.
MJF is also known to take things far and push the envelope as far as being a heel is concerned. He did just that on an earlier episode of AEW Dynamite, where he cut a scathing promo on Brian Pillman Jr. that gave him massive heat from fans.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T gave massive props to MJF and declared that MJF is the best promo guy in the world right now, adding that he gets chills whenever MJF speaks.
“I can’t lie to you. The best promo guy right now in the whole damn world is MJF. He’s good. He’s so good. He’s so believable. He sounds like one of those promos from back in the day where you get caught up in just looking at the guy’s eyes. The feel of the promo makes you go, ‘Good God, man.’ This guy is really good. You can tell it’s natural just having the feel of which route to go during his promos. I give that guy a whole lot of credit. Damn good promo guy, MJF.”
MJF successfully defeated Brian Pillman Jr. on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam. It remains to be seen what is next in store for MJF now.
