During WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque’s appearance on a special live edition of The Pat McAfee Show at WWE World during WrestleMania 40 weekend, a surprising moment unfolded as chants for former AEW World Champion MJF echoed throughout the venue.

As the interview progressed, Triple H appeared to take subtle jab at current AEW star and former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay, sparking intrigue among fans.

However, the unexpected highlight came when chants for MJF, another prominent AEW talent, erupted loudly while Triple H was addressing McAfee. Despite the chants, neither Triple H nor McAfee directly acknowledged them, though references to the rival promotion were made during the appearance.

While the chants added an unexpected twist to the interview, Triple H also touched upon the topic of his potential in-ring WWE return following his retirement in 2022, stirring further speculation among fans.


Meanwhile, MJF, who has been notably absent from AEW programming since his loss of the AEW World Title to Samoa Joe at AEW Worlds End in December 2023, broke his social media silence with pointed message directed at WWE’s Final Boss, The Rock.

With the wrestling world abuzz with excitement and speculation, the chants for MJF during Triple H’s appearance serve as a testament to the crossover appeal and intrigue surrounding top talents in the industry, regardless of promotion affiliation.

How do you interpret the chants for MJF during Triple H’s appearance on The Pat McAfee Show? Do you think it indicates a growing interest or desire among fans to see talents from different promotions interact or potentially cross over in the future? Let us know in the comments.
