For many fans, MJF is certainly 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. It seems he made yet another bold claim recently.
The Salt of the Earth takes his heel persona very seriously and never breaks it, no matter where he is. This has led to several fans and pro wrestlers applauding him for his dedication.
While speaking with Throwing Down w/ Renee and Miesha, MJF talked about possibly making his way to WWE. MJF named Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre as some of the stars he could square off against in WWE if Tony Khan doesn’t pay him enough money.
“It’s funny. A lot of people bring up matchups like me and The Miz, like me and Drew McIntyre, like me and Roman Reigns. Can that potentially happen if Tony Khan doesn’t shell out the right type of cash? Maybe, and that’s why, by the year 2024, as I’ve stated before, it’s going to be the greatest bidding war in the history of our sport.”
MJF also stated that Tony Khan thanks him for being one of the biggest draws in professional wrestling. It remains to be seen whether MJF will ever make his way to WWE in the future or not.
