MJF worked hard to become one of the defining heels of this generation. For many fans, he is truly a generational talent. MJF became huge star in AEW very quickly and has far exceeded expectations. Even his storyline with William Regal recently received a lot of props.

On a previous week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, William Regal and MJF engaged in a promo battle where fans were at the edge of their seats. It revealed how Regal ultimately crushed MJF when he was trying to join WWE.

In fact, MJF stated that he wanted to end his life after Regal sent him that rejection email. While speaking on Wrestling with Freddie, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. gave huge props to MJF and William Regal’s storyline for being a beautiful generational war.

“When I look back at my career at 26 years old compared to what this dude is at 26 years old, like, I was sh*t, and I was the top dog at 26. I was getting every script before anybody else. I was getting higher paychecks than anybody else from my generation and I was nowhere near the level that this dude is at right now.


Something also that I found very beautiful about this story [MJF and William Regal] is sort of the hatred of this older generation towards millennials, and the hate is real.”

MJF is set to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title at AEW Full Gear on November 19th. We will have to wait and see whether he will be able to beat Moxley for the title or not. Either way, he certainly has fans’ attention.
