MJF made a name for himself as one of the most hated heels in professional wrestling. His blistering, personal promos and ability to get under a crowd’s skin has made him the perfect foil to the heroes of All Elite Wrestling.
Fox, USA, and WWE have also taken notice. Andrew Zarian of F4Wonline reports that there is interest from all three parties in the young star. His contract with AEW comes up in 2024. WWE and their television partners have taken keen interest in Maxwell. His feud with CM Punk solidified their thinking.
“An individual at one of those networks, who has been a very reliable source, told me, ‘I actually stopped what I was doing and listened to him. I don’t think I have done that with pro wrestling in a long time.'”
MJF himself has hinted at the possibility of signing with WWE in the past. Those within WWE state that the company is as excited about MJF as the networks are. Several discussions have taken place regarding their desire to sign him at USA, Fox, and WWE. There is reason to believe that MJF will be the hottest free agent in wrestling come 2024, according to a source at WWE.
“He has everything we would want. It really depends on if he could be that same person on WWE TV. We want new stars to be the focus within the next few years. That’s the plan.”
MJF made his pro wrestling debut in 2015. He has been with AEW since the beginning. The coveted wrestler will be in the spotlight again tonight. He is set to take on Dante Martin for the Dynamite Diamond Ring on tonight’s AEW Dynamite: Winter is Coming.
