MJF worked hard to establish himself as one of the most controversial and talked about talents in a long time. The Salt Of The Earth is truly a master in the art of crafting a promo as well. There is also belief that his storyline could cool off after his television hiatus following a “pipe bomb” speech where he called Tony Khan a “f*cking mark.”
As seen in a previous week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF sent shockwaves across the pro wrestling world due to his scathing promo. He eviscerated AEW President Tony Khan and begged Khan to fire him.
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru podcast, Jim Cornette stated that he believes MJF’s storyline in AEW could cool off. After all, AEW has 100% ignored MJF’s existence for weeks.
“Here’s the thing, whenever someone has tried really close up all the loopholes and the logic and make something really appear to be a shoot, the one thing that usually bites you in the asses, is you either don’t go away or don’t go away for any length of time, that somehow the perpetrator of all these legit shoot incidents is still on the TV or allowed in the f*cking building or whatever. That is not the case here, but the flip side is, that it could really cool off.”
AEW also wants fans to think he isn’t with the company anymore. We will have to see what’s next in store for MJF as the company seems to be all in on the storyline.
