AEW star MJF has commented on former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and admits he thinks WWE is better since the ex-chairman retired.
Vince McMahon’s time at the helm of WWE came to a shocking end in July 2022 when he announced his retirement. This came amid allegations of sexual misconduct and hush money payments that were levelled at McMahon.
Since his departure, Vince McMahon has been replaced by his daughter Stephanie McMahon who is now the company’s Chairwoman. Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque has been named as Chief Content Officer, leading WWE’s creative direction in his father-in-law’s absence.
One man not shy of an opinion or two is AEW star MJF. On television, the Long Island native has teased a possible move to WWE once his contract expires in 2024.
Appearing on The MMA Hour, MJF gave his thoughts on Vince McMahon and says he’s left a huge legacy despite the worrying accusations:
“He has left a gigantic legacy in the history of the business. There is a lot of stuff that’s came out. We don’t know what’s real, we don’t know what’s fake. I think it’s still all under investigation, rumor and innuendo, but, I can say yes, yeah, I grew up watching the guy, I thought he was tremendously talented.”
MJF then commented on the WWE product under Triple H’s leadership and says he thinks it has gotten better but tells fans that if you love pro wrestling then it’s important that AEW also succeeds:
“I think it’s better and it’s really good and I think our product is also better … I think it’s great, 100% … You don’t want a monopoly in any industry unless you’re in charge of the monopoly. I’m in charge of the MJF monopoly, there is nobody like me. But, you don’t want a monopoly in professional wrestling.”
“You want a place so I can do what I’m doing which is allow myself to get the best possible deal. If you love professional wrestling, then you want All Elite Wrestling to succeed.”
