MJF has become one of All Elite Wrestling’s most notorious heels. He’s even feuding with his own parents. Now, Max is throwing his name into a different kind of ring. He says he would easily beat Chris Jericho on Dancing with the Stars.

Jericho appeared on Season 12 of DWTS, finishing in 7th place. The Miz, Stacy Keibler, and Nikki Bella are among other pro wrestlers who appeared on the show. MJF told Hollywood Life that he’d have no problem outperforming them all. He also hinted at future non-wrestling projects that might be in the works.

“I definitely think I would absolutely tear it up on Dancing with the Stars or a Masked Singer. Do I think I would be better than them? I am better than everybody at everything, so that is kind of a dumb question. But also, to be fair, I have dipped my toes outside the wrestling bubble as of late. I have my hands in a lot of different pots. Some things are going to be coming up that people are going to be shocked about that I am involved or have already finished. Exciting times in the world of MJF.”

It sounds like Maxwell is looking to break out as a star outside of the squared circle. The popularity of John Cena and The Rock in the mainstream are undeniable. Surely, Tony Khan would love to see a major AEW star crossover into the popular culture at-large.


MJF takes on Darby Allin at tomorrow’s Full Gear pay-per-view. He says fans have a soft spot for Darby because they’re outcasts, too. The character Max portrays as a comfortable rich kid stands in perfect opposition to his opponent.

Whether he’s going to try his hand on DWTS, fans are looking forward to MJF vs Darby this Saturday. It’ll be interesting to see what those non-wrestling projects are. It’ll be hard to win over mainstream audiences if he continues his heel schtick, which shows no signs of stopping.

Do you think MJF would do well on DWTS? Let us know in the comments!
