MJF’s return to AEW television at Double or Nothing last month brought an end to wrestling fans’ speculations about his future, which had been rife since his last appearance at AEW Worlds End the previous year. Interestingly, fans even chanted his name during a discussion about his former ally Cody Rhodes on The Pat McAfee Show earlier this year while Triple H was speaking.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, MJF addressed this memorable moment from The Pat McAfee Show during WrestleMania weekend. He recalled the crowd chanting for him while Triple H discussed Cody Rhodes, highlighting the significance of his name being cheered in that context.

Despite any lingering ties MJF may have with Rhodes or the complexities of their post-betrayal relationship, he couldn’t ignore the impact of his name being chanted during such a high-profile discussion.

“When Triple H is doing an interview on one of the biggest sports shows, whose name were they cheering in the background? My name. I’m not just the biggest star in AEW. I’m one of the biggest stars in the history of the business.


Can you remember the last time someone became a household name and arenas in WWE were chanting their name when they zero exposure elsewhere? We’re talking the Crockett era, aren’t we? I take pride in that. AEW is my territory.

MJF also acknowledged that a move to WWE was genuine possibility at one point. However, his current focus lies on his feud with RUSH on AEW television, making WWE no longer a priority for him. And for fans, that’s all that truly matters.
