Tony Khan Gives Thoughts On WWE’s Reported Interest In MJF

It was reported last week that executives at both USA Network and FOX were interested in WWE bringing in AEW star MJF, with the company themselves also being interested in securing his services when his contract with AEW expires in 2024.

AEW President Tony Khan recently spoke to CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri, where he spoke about WWE’s reported interest in signing MJF in 2024. Khan said that he thinks it’s great, and encourages WWE to keep talking about an AEW star who is under contract to them for a few more years.

He said:

“I think that’s great, I encourage that. I think they should keep talking about him because he’s a wrestler that’s a big part of AEW and is signed here for a few more years. So I think please keep giving us that buzz because he’s been getting great ratings for his segments. And those have also been featuring CM Punk pretty regularly as they continue to interact.”

“You know, (WWE) had some wrestlers I really wanted to sign there, and I signed him, Bryan Danielson and Adam (Cole) and Ruby Soho.”

MJF recently spoke with Sports Illustrated, where he spoke about being referenced in the promo between Edge and The Miz on Raw. MJF teased joining WWE in the interview, and has said frequently that he is hoping to start a bidding war for his services.
