AEW introduced some exciting new members of their roster in recent memory. CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and Ruby Soho are now featured performers for Tony Khan’s company, but they rose to fame under Vince McMahon’s roof. MJF sees this trend, but it won’t change the opinion that he is the best in the world.
During AEW Dark: Elevation, MJF cut a furious promo and he threw shade in a big way. After begging for someone to beat him, he then made direct reference to how AEW brought in so many people from “VKM.” Of course, VKM is in reference to Vincent Kennedy McMahon’s company.
“I beat Brian Pillman Jr. without breaking a goddamn sweat,” MJF said. “Somebody please stop me in this company. For the love of god, beat me clean, smack dab in the middle of the ring – pin me, tap me out.
“No one, and I mean no one has been able to stop my momentum in this company. Nobody’s beaten me clean. Do you know why? It’s because I’m better than you, and you know it.”
“And without me, this company ain’t sh*t. You can keep bringing in these guys who came from VKM, but the only three letters that matter in professional wrestling are M, J, F.”
We’ll have to see what’s next for MJF. He is seemingly finished with Chris Jericho and Brian Pillman, Jr. Now the Salt of the Earth is looking for his next feud. Odds are he won’t have to look far to find someone who would love to punch him in the face, no matter what company they work for.
