MJF has honed his craft as a pro wrestler over the years, as his dedication to his role is truly second to none for many fans. He is the AEW World Champion right now and is having the run of his life in AEW. Now it appears Konnan believes MJF would be a better fit than Grayson Waller in WWE.
The Salt of the Earth previously revealed that he will go where the money is after his current AEW contract ends in 2024. MJF even said that there will be a bidding war for him in 2024.
MJF turned his current AEW contract situation into a television storyline. The AEW World Champion has never failed to make several WWE references, including references to Nick Khan, Triple H and most recently – Vince McMahon.
While speaking on Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Konnan was asked whether WWE needs MJF with Grayson Waller already being a part of the company. Konnan made it clear MJF would be a better fit than Waller.
“First about, the guy [fan] was saying people getting tired of him talking about WWE, That’s Tony’s fault, you should tell him not to say it anymore. If he signed a contract then he is gonna stay there. He’s probably thinking, ‘oh this is getting heat’. But I think I feel the same way, quit bringing it up all the time. I know that it got heat at the beginning but now it’s kinda worn out.
And here’s another thing, I like Grayson Waller, if I had to choose between Grayson Waller and MJF, I’d get MJF.”
Even Cody Rhodes recently stated that MJF can be big star in WWE. MJF also told WWE talent that he is looking forward to joining the company in 2024. There is also doubt over MJF moving the needle in WWE. Regardless, it remains to be seen what MJF will do in the end.
What do you think will be MJF’s next move after his AEW contract expires in 2024? Do you see him staying with AEW or moving on to another promotion like WWE?
