MJF has been the talk of the wrestling world over the past week. After no-showing the Double or Nothing fan meet and greet event in Las Vegas, rumors began to swirl. Whether it was real or storyline ultimately doesn’t matter, as AEW is running with the idea that MJF is unhappy in AEW and wants to leave.

With that story now unfolding on AEW television, the lines between reality and kayfabe have been blurred enough that fans are excited to see what will happen next. MJF has repeatedly stated that he plans to go to the highest bidder when his AEW contract expires in January of 2024. Even if AEW increases its TV rights fees and can offer more money, MJF might have bigger aspirations.

MJF has previously said he plans to be in TV and movies by the age of 35. If he truly does have Hollywood dreams, Max might be better served in WWE, which has proven track record and lots of major industry connections. Dave Meltzer discussed the prospect in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

“If the idea is transitioning into acting, WWE would appear to have the edge due to its exposure, but a WMD synergy with AEW could also happen, although with one person handling all of AEW’s business and its booking and his other duties, there is only so much time to put the multitude of deals together like we see almost weekly with WWE.”


There is no arguing about MJF’s natural charisma. His promo on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite showed that he is more than capable of displaying a wide range of emotions. Acting seems a natural fit should he decide to pursue it.

If he does, MJF will have to think long and hard about where he can best realize that opportunity. WWE has produced major Hollywood stars in the past. If that is MJF’s ultimate ambition, then Vince McMahon’s company could be the right fit.
