MJF is considered one of the best heels in the modern-day pro wrestling world and there is a good reason for that. MJF gets heat no matter what he does and for him, it is simply effortless. He also commented on being compared to The Miz once again recently.
The Salt of the Earth never breaks his character, be it inside our outside the squared circle. MJF is dedicated to his craft and that is a big reason why he is so successful in AEW.
Previously, The Miz addressed comparisons to MJF and revealed that he has high opinion of MJF. While speaking to Ariel Helwani, MJF talked about being compared to The Miz. MJF then bragged that he is now head and shoulders above The Miz.
“The reason that we compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan is because why? Michael Jordan was the best. And that’s me giving a massive congratulatory, you know, to the Miz, because for the longest time – he was one of the guys that did what? Made you feel something. So I understand why that happened.
It’s not happening anymore because now I am head and shoulders above the rest. I respect Miz like no other. I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but Miz complimented me very highly in an interview. I complimented him very highly back, because he is simply incredible. But we are no longer getting compared, and I appreciate that, because that means that I gave people no choice but to uncross their arms, go on their keyboards and write ‘F***, I really do not like MJF, but he is seriously good.'”
The comparisons between The Miz and MJF might have died down for the time being, but they could come back at any time. It remains to be seen whether the two duke it out in the future in WWE.
