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. That said, he has yet to sign a new contract with AEW.
The Salt of the Earth previously revealed that he will go where the money is after his current AEW contract ends in 2023. MJF even said that there will be a bidding war for him in 2024.
MJF has made it clear on many occasions that he is an honest man and he has no intention of signing another contract until his current deal with AEW expires. After all, he is certainly someone in high demand now.
While speaking to Jimmy Traina on the SI Media podcast, MJF was asked if he had signed a new contract with AEW. The AEW World Champion insisted that he has not re-signed with Tony Khan’s company even now, as his contract will expire very soon.
“I’ve been saying the same thing (about my contract expiration date). I never lied. January 1st, 2024. When stuff like that gets leaked out, it makes me laugh because I remember something leaked out about Cody (Rhodes) having secretly re-signed and then he showed up (in WWE). Something got leaked out about, you know, CM Punk and Tony Khan or you know… I think fans leak out things that they want to be true. I love AEW, I wanna stay in AEW. After this pay-per-view (Worlds End), it’s time to assess the situation for a professional setting. So… not yet (I haven’t re-signed).“
There is also a strong indication that MJF could be leaving AEW after his contract expires. Even Cody Rhodes previously 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. Regardless, it remains to be seen what MJF will do in the end.
