AEW World Champion MJF has seen The Undertaker’s comments praising his character and in-ring work.
During a recent “1deadMAN Show” in Glasgow, the WWE Hall of Famer was asked about which current wrestler he would have liked to face in the ring. This led to the Deadman naming MJF. He would later add that AEW is a “second-rate company” that MJF needs to leave ASAP.
MJF took to Twitter to react to ‘Taker’s comments regarding himself, but not his shots at AEW. The Salt of the Earth wrote,
“Not many higher honors than being praised by The Undertaker.
Undertaker was asked what wrestler from today would he most like to wrestle during his 1deadMAN show, and he answered MJF, because he is solid in ring and lives his gimmick.
