MJF took to the microphone once AEW Dynamite was off the air to share his true thoughts about Tony Khan!
The end of AEW Dynamite saw MJF save his AEW Full Gear opponent Jon Moxley from an attack from The Firm. Despite the fact that The Firm aided MJF in winning the Casino Ladder Match at All Out, he fired the group from his employ weeks ago when they refused to leave Moxley alone, signaling a potential babyface turn for the Dynamite Diamond Ring winner.
After once again saving Jon Moxley from a beatdown, MJF got on the microphone after AEW Dynamite went off the air and called out AEW President Tony Khan, who came to stand in the ring with the man who once called him a “mark.” MJF proceded to lavish praise on Tony Khan, saying that he “busts his a**” every week and gives every professional wrestler more of an opportunity.
“I’d like to get real real quick with all y’all, real quick. Just give me a second. No bullshit. Everybody listen to me real quick. A lot of bullshit has gone on, a lot of bullshit. We all know it. However, let me make something crystal clear. Me and [Tony], we’ve been at odds once or twice. I’m not gonna stand here and pretend that’s not the case.
“But there’s something I take issue with that I’ve been seeing lately. Everybody make some noise if you’re a fan of professional wrestling. Now, you guys think you’re wrestling fans. Imagine for one second, if you had the opportunity to bring your love of professional wrestling out to the world and create an alternative. Would you do it? This man right here busts his a**, week in, week out to give not just you, but to give all the boys in the back an opportunity to show the world how much we love professional wrestling.”
Continuing, MJF detailed the toll professional wrestling takes on a performer’s body, and says that he doesn’t appreciate anyone treating his place of work badly. Though he didn’t call him out by name, this seemed a clear shot aimed at CM Punk, who left the company after an expletive-filled verbal tirade at the media scrum following AEW All Out. He also praised the AEW President for giving people more opportunities to work and be taken care of in professional wrestling.
“This shit is not ballet. Every time we get in this ring, we are risking our lives. You people understand that? We don’t take that lightly. What I damn sure don’t take lightly is somebody coming in to my company, dropping trou and taking a dump.
“That sh*t ain’t happening anymore because this is the place. The only reason why it’s here is because of Tony f*cking Khan. Without AEW, professional wrestling is a monopoly. Do not get me wrong, I love WWE, trust me, I love WWE. However, hear me out, your favorite wrestlers don’t get properly and don’t eat properly unless Tony Khan makes that alternative.”
In conclusion, MJF made it clear that he felt he was carrying AEW on his back, and that he felt Tony Khan should step up with as much money as possible when his contract expires in 2024. He also indicated that he intends to win the AEW World Championship.
“Now I’m going to finish it with more honesty. Tony, I’m just gonna keep it real with you. I’m carrying this goddamn place on my back. If I were you, I would pay up in the bidding war of 2024. Connecticut, you crazy motherfuckers better buy this pay-per-view to witness history because MJF is taking home the gold.”
