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. That being said, he’s not afraid to go against the normal expectations that people have for pro wrestlers.
The 3-time Dynamite Diamond Ring winner returned at AEW All Out and since then has remained a huge part of AEW programming. MJF recently confirmed that he signed new deal with AEW without any contract extension.
Cody Rhodes left AEW earlier this year and went back to WWE, where he had a terrific match against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38. Rhodes looked like a legitimate star there, but that move didn’t make everyone happy.
While speaking with Not Sam Wrestling, MJF said that not even a WrestleMania debut like Cody’s would change his mind that money is the only thing that matters to him. It’s really all about the Benjamins for MJF.
“The only thing I care about at this point at 26 years of age is where will I make the most amount of money? … I think if AEW is willing to pay me enough to put the company on my back and build it up so that one day we have a hundred thousand people at an event, I don’t see what the difference is.”
We will have to wait and see whether MJF will end up winning the AEW World Title. The fact that he is holding a guaranteed title shot in the casino royale chip can’t be forgotten. Fans would certainly love to see that happen.
