It’s 2022 and MJF is already looking forward to his AEW contract expiring in 2024.
While there are reports that MJF is legitimately frustrated in All Elite Wrestling, some fans think all of this is a work.
During an interview with Rasslin’, MJF ripped ex-WWE wrestlers that make a lot of money in AEW and teased leaving the company once again.
Below is what he said:
“Let me explain something to you, by 2024, daddy is going to make more money than The Hardys have made in their entire run.
Once you get into Long Island, you don’t want to leave Long Island, so what does it matter if the traffic is bad coming out? I can’t wait to leave this company, how about that.
Oh no, hope that doesn’t ruffle any feathers in the office, oh no. Who said AEW? I didn’t say AEW, you just said AEW, maybe I did, maybe I didn’t. Maybe I’m in a sh*t mood, maybe I hate my boss, maybe I f**king love my boss, who knows?
I think there’s a lot of stuff going on in this company that is inaccurate. I think all these ex-fking WWE guys that are making an absurd amount of money. When quite frankly they can’t sniff my fking jock when it comes to the ratings I pull in whenever I am on screen, I think they can all go to hell.
I think that somebody in the upper management has a problem with me, and it’s very obvious if you see what I am dealing with week to week.
Let’s talk about Shawn Spears (fka Tye Dillinger). Shawn Spears is an ex-WWE guy that gets it. Now, if/when I were to go over there, I’d have me a ball. Because I have built my brand and established myself here.
So, when I go over there, I am not going to have to deal with the same type of bullsh*t that Shawn Spears had to deal with. Because a guy like that has been criminally underrated for over a decade.”
MJF needs a contract extension & pay increase if AEW wants to retain him. If word gets out that he was on the same pay scale as some of the lowly indie talent that continues to stink up AEW, he should leave the same day his contract expires. Lord knows WWE needs stars and MJF would shoot straight to the top as a main event heel with WWE.
