MJF – “Does Triple H Want Me To Work For His Company? Sure”


MJF has long touted himself as open to offers as he teased a “bidding war of 2024” between AEW and WWE but now the star has suggested he might simply retire from the ring.

The hated star had another good night at Double Or Nothing when he overcame the three other male pillars of AEW and retained his AEW World Championship. But despite his continued in-ring success, the pro wrestling world might not have all that MJF wants anymore.

Speaking at the post-Double Or Nothing media scrum, MJF – sitting next to Tony Khan – claimed that he might simply walk away from wrestling despite Triple H and Nick Khan’s interest in bringing him to WWE:

“I’m dead serious. If I literally retire today, this is not hyperbole, I’ve had one of the best professional wrestling runs in the history of the business, that’s a fact. Best oratory exhibitions, best Iron Man match, best singles dog collar match, tonight I had the best four-way.

“Also, some of the best rivalries in the history of the sport; Cody Rhodes, Wardlow, CM Punk, Danielson, and that’s just to name a few. I’m pretty sure if I called it quits, I’ve had a Hall of Fame career, which is why, quite frankly, when I say ‘take my ball and go home,’ earmuffs Tony, everybody thinks I’m talking about WWE.

“Now, does Nick Khan want me to work in his company? Sure. Does Triple H want me to work in his company? Sure. [Looking at Tony], calm down, it’s fine, or maybe it’s not, but I’m kind of bored of this sport and I’m bored of the lack of respect from professional wrestling fans, so when I say ‘take my ball and go home,’ I mean literally, just hang it up, and f*ck up the lineage of this title.

“Frankly, I don’t know if anybody is worthy of beating me for this thing. Now, I’m not just going to hand it away, why would I do that? I earned this thing. Please, by all means, take it off of me, somebody put me out of my misery. Until then, we’ll see what happens.”

MJF might have escaped from Double Or Nothing with his title intact, it was not a good night for another champion in the company who was dethroned by a shock challenger.
