MJF 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. It seems MJF had an interesting response to a fan recently.
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.
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns recently took multiple shots at AEW, where he stated that he doesn’t view AEW as competition for WWE. In addition to that, Roman Reigns also verbally destroyed CM Punk as he said that Punk has lost a step.
A fan took to Twitter and shared an update when it came to tickets sold by Monday Night RAW and AEW Dynamite for their upcoming shows at UBS Arena in Long Island, New York. RAW was well behind Dynamite in ticket sales despite Roman Reigns being advertised for the show.
The fan stated that Roman Reigns being advertised for the show didn’t help RAW sell tickets, while MJF’s appearance on Barstool Sports’ Rasslin podcast may have for Dynamite. MJF responded to the fan and claimed that he is the king of Long Island.
May have? I’m the F*cking King of Long Island, bud.
MJF also recently claimed that he has better mic skills and in-ring ability than Roman Reigns. MJF is also currently engaged in a feud with Darby Allin, so it remains to be seen how the feud will develop in the coming months. It is likely their feud will culminate at AEW Full Gear next month.
