MJF Admits He Owes A Lot To Jim Cornette

MJF had some good things to say about legendary wrestling personality Jim Cornette.

The AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman is looking to hold the title for one year as he is set to defend the gold against Jay White at Full Gear 2023.

Over the last year, MJF went from being the most hated man in the company that referred to himself as “The Devil” before becoming a popular babyface World Champion that proudly admitted to being the scumbag of the fans.

In a video with Dr. Beau Hightower on YouTube, MJF gave his honest opinions about three big names in the pro wrestling business. MJF was asked to play F**k, Marry, Kill with AEW Owner Tony Khan, legendary wrestling manager/personality Jim Cornette & Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer. MJF responded by saying he would kill all three, but he did give some opinions on them as well.

“I’ll say a positive thing about all three: Dave Meltzer’s really good at kissing ass.”

“Jim Cornette, when I was in MLW I learned a lot from him. Controversial figure in professional wrestling but when I was in Major League Wrestling I can honestly say I owe a lot to him, I learned a lot.”

“And then Tony Khan, he’s very rich. I’ll give him that.”
