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. MJF is also a huge fan of every WWE show by the looks of it.
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.
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 promos as well.
While speaking with Ariel Helwani, MJF stated that he genuinely loves everything WWE is doing with their various shows. This includes NXT 2.0 among other things.
“See, I think WWE is doing great. I love everything WWE’s doing. I just think we are fresh and we have fresh faces that people haven’t seen before. I think right now everything that Vince [McMahon] and Bruce Prichard are putting out there is absolutely incredible. I love it. I love NXT 2.0. I love Raw, I love SmackDown, I love what Roman’s doing. I think Roman’s putting out some great work. Paul Heyman, fellow member of the tribe, absolutely killing it. Sorry about what’s going on with Brock [Lesnar], you deserve better than that. I think they’re putting out a great product. I think the big difference, quite frankly is that AEW has MJF. That’s the biggest difference-maker you could possibly have.
I genuinely love WWE programming. It’s great. There’s so many charisma machines on that program. I think it’s a great show. They had a makeout competition this past Tuesday; gripping television. How could you not like a makeout competition? I practically had a makeout competition with that hot redhead a couple of weeks ago. Who doesn’t like a good makeout sesh? So, I’m enjoying it. I think Bruce is doing a hell of a job and at the end of the day, quite frankly, there’s a lot of guys there that are developing and trying to figure out who they are as human beings. Not who they are as acts, but who they are as human beings and it’s fun to watch these young guys develop and figure it out.”
MJF also previously stated that he believes WWE will do everything they can to sign him after his AEW contract expires. We’ll have to see if MJF will actually make his way to WWE somewhere down the line or not.
