MJF explains why he won’t talk trash about Roman Reigns

There has been some back and forth with talent in AEW and WWE regarding the recent competition of their shows going against each other.

MJF was asked about his opinion on the situation during his appearance on Barstool’s ‘Rasslin show.

At first, MJF did throw some shade at Roman Reigns for losing in the key 18-49 demographic with his contract signing segment on Friday’s WWE SmackDown that went head-to-head with a match between Ruby Soho and The Bunny on AEW Rampage. However, MJF then went to praise the WWE Universal Champion.

“I’m seeing all this chitter chatter of people in the other company talking smack, people in my company talking smack. Roman Reigns lost in the key demographic to Ruby Soho and Ruby Soho sucks. So, I don’t know what to tell you. Now, don’t get me wrong, that’s not me sh*tting on Roman Reigns. I think Roman Reigns is a hell of a performer. He really is. I think he’s absolutely incredible.

Am I better than him on the mic and in the ring? Yeah, but I’m not gonna go out of my way to talk sh*t about him because I respect him, I respect what he does, I respect the hard work that goes [into] putting out that product that is WWE and again, someday I might work there. Yeah, and I’m also sure if he sees this, he’ll pretend he doesn’t know who I am because that’s what they do over there when in reality I know that they’re all watching our stuff and again, cannot stress this enough, huge fan of Roman Reigns, think he’s great. Would love to work with him one day.”
