A former WWE writer ranks the AEW World Champion MJF ahead of the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.

When it comes to being the best pro wrestler in the world today, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr., who has done a lot in Hollywood over the last 30 years, is going with AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman over the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Earlier this month, Roman Reigns continued his reign as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion by defeating Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39 thanks to an assist from Solo Sikoa. Reigns has held the WWE Universal Title for nearly 1000 days at this point while also holding the WWE Title for a year.

In the case of MJF, he has been AEW World Champion since November 2022 at Full Gear. MJF doesn’t wrestle often but impressed a lot of people with his performance at AEW Revolution last month when he wrestled Bryan Danielson for over one hour in an Iron Man Match.

While speaking on his “Wrestling With Freddie” podcast recently, Prinze spoke about who is the best wrestler in all of pro wrestling right now and he went with Maxwell Jacob Friedman aka MJF.

“This dude is the gold standard of professional wrestling. He is top of the food chain. Roman Reigns is what he is. He’s great, and he’s not even close to reaching what MJF already has. And MJF hasn’t been doing it half as long, at this level.”

“This dude — he could go out next week, sit in a stool, open Dr. Seuss books (the one that you’re not allowed to read anymore), and read it word for word, and show the pictures of the racist imagery that everyone got mad about, and they would cheer, and it would be the highest-rated segment of the week.”

During an AEW Dynamite in January, MJF mocked Freddie during a promo. Prinze has revealed in the past that they are friends.
