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 proficient when it comes to cutting a promo as well. He is the AEW World Champion, but it was not always smooth sailing for him, especially due to his relationship with Tony Khan. In fact, Khan stated that MJF is very hard to work with.
MJF’s scathing promo on AEW President Tony Khan drew a lot of buzz, as MJF begged Tony Khan to fire him, and he also called Khan a ‘f*cking mark.” Afterwards, MJF remained absent from AEW television for the next few months.
That all changed after MJF was revealed to be the Joker at AEW All Out and confronted CM Punk. MJF also got a massive pop upon his return and a few months later, MFJ would capture the AEW World Championship.
While speaking on K&C Masterpiece, Tony Khan talked about his working relationship with MJF right now. Khan admitted that The Salt Of The Earth is very hard to work with.
He’s one of the most dislikable people there is. He elicits that emotion for a lot of people. He’s a very challenging personality and very hard to work with, but he’s a great professional wrestler. We saw it last week, that incredible match to kick off Championship Fight Night on Dynamite. MJF is a great wrestler, he showed it out there one-on-one against (Konosuke) Takeshita.
It’ll be the ultimate test for a champion, for a pro wrestler, on March 5 at Revolution, in the main event, a 60-minute Iron Man match when MJF goes one-on-one with the greatest technical wrestler in the world, maybe the greatest technical wrestler of all time, ‘The American Dragon’ Bryan Danielson. MJF, if you don’t like him, get ready to see him get put through the ultimate test of punishment. We’ll see what kind of wrestler and champion he is. Knowing, as a fan, you’re going to see Bryan Danielson wrestle for 60 minutes, what a treat.”
MJF will defend his AEW World Championship against Bryan Danielson in a 60-minute iron-man match at Revolution on March 5th. We’ll have to see how the match turns out, but his mouth is still going strong as AEW World Champion.
