MJF is the current AEW World Champion and is clearly on top of his game in the company. He is regarded as one of the best heels in the business, but that doesn’t mean everyone thinks the same. It appears that some believe he lacks heel heat like Dominik Mysterio.
Dominik Mysterio has been involved in a storyline with The Judgment Day since he betrayed his father and Edge last year. This heel turn was just what the doctor ordered as far as his character was concerned.
While Dominik Mysterio has yet to reach the level of success or in-ring prowess that MJF has achieved, there is no denying the fact that Dominik Mysterio has truly come into his own a heel on WWE television.
While speaking on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Disco Inferno stated that MJF simply lacks the same kind of nuclear heat that Dominik Mysterio gets on a weekly basis now.
“I think nobody would disagree that MJF is a better performer… However, you could argue who has more heat right now, it’s Dominik….I’m sure, I am positive that MJF would love to be getting the type of heat that Dom’s getting right now. I mean, if you’re a heel, you want Dominik Mysterio heat.”
MJF himself isn’t a fan of the comparison between himself and Dominik Mysterio. Regardless, both are doing phenomenal work as heels and it’s inevitable the two will continue to be compared for a long time.
