MJF did an interview with Hollywood Life to promote AEW’s upcoming Full Gear PPV.
During it, his contract was brought up several times as it expires in 2024. He thinks he’s changed the business and doesn’t think fans watch AEW just to see former WWE wrestlers.
“I think it is very clear that I have changed professional wrestling because before I got involved in professional wrestling, there was only one show in town,” MJF said. “And now, due to my talents and me being an incredibly intriguing attribute, my company, look, people are tuning into AEW not to see some of these ex-WWE talents, as great as they are. People are tuning in for MJF, a guy who has only been on worldwide TV for two, two and a half years? And if that doesn’t scream change, I don’t know what does. And what people should be screaming is ‘thank you’ to me.”
MJF also commented on possibly appearing on Dancing with the Stars, saying,
“I definitely think I would absolutely tear it up on Dancing with the Stars or a Masked Singer. Do I think I would be better than them? I am better than everybody at everything, so that is kind of a dumb question. But, to be fair, I have dipped my toes outside the wrestling bubble as of late. I have my hands in a lot of different pots. Some things are going to be coming up that people are going to be shocked about that I am involved in or have already finished. Exciting times in the world of MJF.”
MJF is scheduled to wrestle Darby Allin at Full Gear this Saturday.
