Since MJF joined AEW in 2019, he has been seen as a future top star as he was always pushed. After being in alliance with Chris Jericho, the top prospect became a main eventer.
MJF was turned on by the Inner Circle and created his own faction, the Pinnacle. Many people see him as a top heel for the promotion for years to come. However, at the end of the day, pro wrestling is a business and he knows that.
Thus, when he was asked about a possible move to WWE when his AEW contract expires, he won’t shut the door on the possibility.
“I’d say I’d be near the end of my contract. I would be the AEW World Champion, I would still be a part of the greatest faction in professional wrestling known as The Pinnacle, all of my brothers in arms would also have gold and then, at that point, the highest bidder, baby. Me and my boys, we’re willing to go wherever the money’s at, it’s that simple,” MJF stated in a recent interview with Steel Chair Magazine.
“Don’t get me wrong, AEW runs deep in me, I don’t want to leave, but I am a businessman at the end of the day, and I can’t help myself if somebody’s got an offer for me, I’m going to listen to it.”
MJF won the Blood and Guts match this past Wednesday night before he pushed Jericho off the top of the structure. The AEW star also talked about the match, his spot in the promotion, and more. Check out the full interview here.
