In late November, CM Punk and MJF kicked off their feud on an episode of AEW Dynamite that got fans talking.
MJF did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated about and feels Punk needs him more than he needs Punk.
“There’s no Batman without Joker. Punk needs me more than I need him. It doesn’t get bigger than that,” said MJF. “I’m well aware of it. Pinning his shoulders to the mat would be the biggest highlight of my career.”
MJF also pointed out how their segment didn’t have a script or time limit.
“We didn’t have a script,” said MJF. “We didn’t have a time limit. Me and Punk were in that ring, just talking, on Thanksgiving Eve. That should have drawn, maximum, 700,000 viewers, and I’m being generous. That’s the greatest night to go out with your friends. It’s not a night to stay in. You’re with friends or you’re with family. But when we were in the ring, over a million people were watching.”
