MJF considers himself a generational talent, and he clearly has many ways to back up his claims. He is now the AEW World Champion, and that is just the tip of the iceberg for the Salt of the Earth. That being said, it seems his most recent promo on AEW Dynamite was legitimate.

MJF’s in-ring abilities and exceptional microphone skills propelled him to the top of the industry. The AEW World Champion is known for blending reality with kayfabe with his promos all the time.
On the February 22nd episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF cut a very emotional promo from the heart, where he targeted Bryan Danielson. During the promo, MJF told a story about splitting from his fiancée.
“I’m the guy who got left stranded by anyone I’ve ever opened up to. I’m the guy who got thrown away like trash by anyone who’s ever claimed they loved me. And then I met a girl, a girl who changed my outlook on every single person on this planet. My dream girl. A girl I fell in love with.
She convinced me that not everyone in this world is bad. So that I became the man who got down on one knee and I told that girl I wanted to start a family with her. I wanted to make a home with her. I wanted to have children with her. “And, do you know what she did Bryan Danielson? She left me. She left me, Bryan.
She left me because I’m unloveable and the only thing I have in this life that I can trust, the only thing I have in this world that makes me feel unconditional love is this Triple B. “The AEW World Championship is the only thing stopping me grabbing a fist full of pills and calling it a day.”
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful on Twitter, it was reported that MJF’s promo about splitting from his fiancée was based in reality, as he did break up with her.
The MJF promo had a lot of truth to it. Normally wouldn’t cover that type of thing, but he and his fiancee did have a split as was referenced on tonight’s AEW Dynamite
MJF will defend his AEW World Championship against Bryan Danielson in a 60-minute iron-man match at Revolution on March 5. We’ll have to see how the match will turn out.
