It’s starting to feel as though we might be writing about MJF’s AEW contract until it expires, because he’s doing all he can to convince people he is not sticking around when it expires in 2024.
The latest on the situation, according to Fightful Select, is that people within WWE believe Tony Khan would definitely offer MJF a better paid deal if he asked for one, but that it would have to be part of a contract extension, rather than a mid-contract increase.
While that all seems pretty sensible, it seems MJF is keen to talk about the situation at every opportunity, with the latest of these opportunities being an appearance on Rasslin’.
When asked about the situation, he said:
“Let me explain something to you, by 2024, daddy is going to make more money than The Hardys have made in their entire run.
“Once you get into Long Island, you don’t want to leave Long Island, so what does it matter if the traffic is bad coming out? I can’t wait to leave this company, how about that.
“Oh no, hope that doesn’t ruffle any feathers in the office, oh no. Who said AEW? I didn’t say AEW, you just said AEW, maybe I did, maybe I didn’t. Maybe I’m in a sh*t mood, maybe I hate my boss, maybe I fu***ng love my boss, who knows?”
He went onto explain one of the biggest sources of frustration for him is that former WWE stars are immediately being signed to better contracts than him.
“I think there’s a lot of stuff going on in this company that is inaccurate. I think all these ex-fu***ng WWE guys that are making an absurd amount of money. When quite frankly they can’t sniff my fu***ng jock when it comes to the ratings I pull in whenever I am on screen, I think they can all go to hell. I think that somebody in the upper management has a problem with me, and it’s very obvious if you see what I am dealing with week to week.”
MJF is currently in the middle of a heated feud with Wardlow, which continues this Wednesday on AEW Dynamite, where Wardlow will take 10 lashes.
