MJF has established himself as one of the best heels in the modern-day pro wrestling world. It took him barely any time to cement himself as one of the top stars in AEW. It seems MJF is fairly confident in his value as a professional wrestler as well.
The Salt of the Earth is dedicated to his character as he never breaks kayfabe, inside or outside the squared circle. His dedication to his credit has won him over with fans who simply love to hate him. He is also brilliantly getting heat by teasing the idea of a WWE jump.
MJF previously revealed that he will go where the money is after his current AEW contract expires in 2024. MJF even stated that there will be a bidding war for him in 2024, adding that to his recent promos as well.
While speaking to Freddie Prinze Jr. on the Wrestling with Freddie podcast, the Salt Of The Earth stated that he believes WWE will do whatever it takes to sign him after his AEW contract expires in 2024.
“I genuiney believe WWE is going to be willing to do whatever it takes to get me to jump ship, because to have me is to pretty much take a sniper rifle and shoot the heart of All Elite Wrestling, because that is exactly what I am. I’m the glue because everybody around me hates my guts. Everybody wants to punch me in the face. I am the top tier guy that everybody has a problem with. When you take your biggest antagonist – even though, personally, I feel I’m a protagonist – when you take your biggest antagonist and you take them away, what do you have? What is the Batman without The Joker? He’s nobody. He is boring and has no intrigue whatsoever.
There is just no success without having that thorn in your side. I got no problem being that thorn because it takes me a sh*t ton of money. So, to answer your question, Fred, yeah, I do believe that these people are going to shill out a lot of cash for me.”
MJF’s stock continues to rise in AEW and by the time 2024 rolls around, it is likely a bidding war will start for him. It remains to be seen whether he will stick with AEW or not by then.
