MJF is currently heating things up in AEW as the leader of The Pinnacle. Fox and USA Network’s recent interest in the AEW standout caused WWE to have significant interest in MJF. Tony Khan seems to be more than okay with this situation.
Tony Khan recently appeared for an exclusive interview with CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri. During the discussion, Khan revealed that he thinks that the MJF interest is great, and he encourages that.
Khan further said that MJF is a big part of AEW and deserves to be the talk of the town. MJF is getting outstanding ratings for his segments. He is also set up for highly anticipated events in the future.
“I think that’s great. I encourage that. I think they should keep talking about him because he’s a wrestler that’s a big part of AEW and is signed here for a few more years.”
“So I think please keep giving us that buzz because he’s been getting great ratings for his segments and those have also been featuring CM Punk pretty regularly as they continue to interact. They’ve had a war of words and now there’ll be on opposite sides of this huge trios match where you got Sting [and] Darby Allin teaming with CM Punk against MJF and FTR. I think that’s great. You know, [WWE] had some wrestlers I really wanted to sign there and I signed him, Bryan Danielson and Adam [Cole] and Ruby Soho.”
Khan was also interested in signing Kevin Owens but unfortunately, Owens re-signed for WWE. Khan states that it’s good for him as he’s getting a lot of money from it. You can watch the entire exclusive interview provided below.
