MJF is regarded as one of the most controversial and highly discussed pro wrestlers in a long time. He can generate heat with effortless ease as well.
The Salt of the Earth returned at AEW All Out and since then has remained a huge part of AEW programming. MJF recently confirmed that he signed a new deal with AEW without any contract extension.
While speaking with Variety to promote tonight’s AEW Dynamite episode, AEW President Tony Khan opened up about his relationship with MJF after everything that has transpired.
“It’s very professional,” Khan said of his current relationship with MJF. “He’s been part of AEW from day one, and he’s one of the most important stars on our TV show. … Whether you love MJF or love to hate MJF, I think he’s one of the wrestlers who’s connected with the audience in recent years and made himself a star. He’s also had the company behind him to help build him and support him. I think that he is the total package of everything it takes to be a successful pro wrestler. I think he has it all. He’s a really important part of AEW.”
We will have to wait and see whether MJF will end up winning the AEW World Title. Fans would certainly love to see that happen.
