MJF is considered one of the best heels in the pro wrestling business, with many comparing him to ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. MJF has honed his craft over the years and cemented himself as one of the top stars in AEW. Road Dogg also doubts MJF will move the needle in WWE.
The Salt of the Earth previously revealed that he will go where the money is after his current AEW contract ends in 2024. MJF even said that there will be a bidding war for him in 2024.
While speaking to Vince Russo, WWE Hall Of Famer Road Dogg talked about MJF possibly going to WWE. Road Dogg made it clear he doubts MJF will be moving the needle in WWE.
“I don’t think he would work within the same parameters, and if he didn’t, he wouldn’t be there. He’s not a huge guy. His in-ring work is good. He’s not going to move the needle or anything, I don’t think, but nobody does these days so I’m not really talk-dogging him too much. But yeah, he has a lot of creative control right now and maybe they (AEW) took some away from him and that’s where he’s at. We’ll see when he comes back and where they go. But yeah, I don’t think he makes it too far in the WWE.
I think Vince, in my mind, would use him as a manager, like the next Paul Heyman or something like that. I met the kid and spent a day with him at an autograph signing. He’s a pleasure, he was respectful, and I loved it and I loved the kid. We’ll just see what happens when he returns.”
AEW also wants fans to think he isn’t with the company anymore. In the meantime, AEW isn’t mentioning the Salt of the Earth and that’s unlikely to change for a long time. We will have to wait and see if MJF ever makes his way to WWE or not.
