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 Cody Rhodes is not a fan of one of the major concepts in AEW.

MJF previously labelled himself, Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and Jungle Boy as the four pillars of AEW. Many fans also agree with this notion. This was similar to 1990’s All Japan Pro Wrestling’s Four Pillars Akira Taue, Kenta Kobashi, Mitsuharu Misawa and Toshiaki Kawada.

While speaking on Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker, Cody Rhodes talked about the concept of four pillars in AEW. Rhodes admitted that he hates the concept, especially the way MJF added himself to it.

“I hate the four pillars… but the concept that he (MJF) just went and decided to say, ‘We’re the four pillars’ without really confirming,” said Rhodes. “The guy who said the four pillars thing, he was the most unknown one coming on board and literally was stuck to my side like a little baby because I knew him from the…independent scene.”


Tony Khan also previously mentioned that AEW has more pillars than just the four MJF had mentioned. AEW will continue to build more stars as time goes by so there is certainly weight to what Tony Khan said as well.
