On this week’s AEW Dynamite, MJF proved that he is one of the best promo guys in the wrestling industry. Many fans know that MJF and AEW president Tony Khan have a backstage heat. It exploded on AEW Dynamite when MJF cut a promo for Tony Khan and the rest of the locker room.
During MJF’s promo, he ripped Tony Khan and asked for his release from the company. MJF claimed that he carried AEW on his back but did not get respect. MJF added that he does not want to be in AEW anymore.
MJF further stated that Tony Khan would treat him better if he was an ex-WWE guy. When MJF started talking, fans at the arena began chanting “Shut the F up” to him. However, he managed to turn fans on his side during the middle of his promo.
MJF finished his promo by saying profanities on Tony Khan. He stated that Khan is an “F’n mark.” That last sentence was censored, and then they cut off MJF’s microphone.
“I am in a lot of pain right now after what happened on sunday, but all you people want to do is hear me talk right. That’s what, that’s what you want right, you want to hear me talk. I’ll talk but this is Max Friedman talking. Big merger boss a lot of important executives here tonight to watch your product would be a real shame if something bad happened. I wouldn’t want to embarrass you man. Speaking of embarrassing, you’ve been trying to sit down with me to has things out for quite some time now haven’t you. Well guess what too little, too late. Here’s why, when this company first started it was all friends wrestling everybody was handed a ticket except for me. See I had to write my own and boy do I have good penmanship because I created moments after moment after moment for this company and I still get no respect. Nobody is on my level, no one. Everything I touch turns to gold, there is nothing I can’t do. Every time I come out here, I am not expected to hit home runs, I am expected to hit grand slams and I do that sh*ts on a weekly basis. See all the other boys they get to settle for being great, I have to be perfect. Because I’m the 26 years old who is constantly held under a microscope because I’m the only guy who is capable of carrying this company on my back as I have for months. It’s funny, it’s funny I hear boos but I also hear clapping. That’s interesting, that’s interesting. Where were you guys where were you guys this whole weekend when you were calling me an unprofessional piece of sh*t? I’m just curious. You’re not the only problem. No it’s the boys in the back too because the boys in the back all want my spot. Well guess what you want my spot, you can have it. Because I don’t want to be here anymore. Now let’s talk about you fans huh. You people call yourself fans. You’re not fans, you’re uneducated marks. You sit there on your phones tweeting out your opinions like they’re worth the damn. let me explain something to you people you don’t know sh*t. Your opinions suck. Your opinions change at the drop of a dime and then you pretend your new opinions are the same as your own. For example, man I always knew MJF was a good wrestler. Really that’s interesting, because last time I checked you guys pretended I sucked in the ring for a long time and why is that huh? Because, because I’m not untrained like all your faves, because i don’t pretend to watch New Japan because I don’t dump because I don’t dump my opponents on their head because I’m not reckless. What is it? Is it because I’m not chasing star ratings guys? What is it? How could I possibly be the best well news flash I have the best. I’m the Best in the World because I’m the only guy who makes you feel and unlike all those boys. I don’t gotta do a bunch of sh*t to get you there. I am a generational talent and you people consistently take me for granted but it’s not just you. It’s the big man in the back too. Here’s something you guys can’t take for granted. Here’s something he doesn’t want you to know. Do you guys know who the second biggest minute for minute draw is in this entire company? Nope you wish. It’s me, it’s me. And if you don’t believe me, do me a favor. Ask that boy Tony in the back see what he’s got to say but whatever you do don’t ask him to reach into his pockets and pay the man who’s been busting his ass for him since day one. No no no no no no make sure he hoards all that money, make sure he hoards all that money, so he can give it to all the new ex-WWE guys he keeps bringing in. That can’t lace my goddamn boots. Hey hey boss, would you treat me better if I was an ex-WWE guy. See maybe you don’t get it man. Here’s the problem with you boss. You got a position of power in a wrestling company when the only position you should be assuming is behind the guardrail with all of them. I don’t want to wait till 2024 but you don’t listen to me, so allow me to make it a little bit easier for you. Tony, I want you to fire me. Tony [Don’t tell me down, you piece of sh*t. Shut your mouth] Look at me, Tony look at me, I want you to fire me. You fu*king mark. Fire me, fire me.“MJF
AEW went to a commercial break after MJF’s promo. During the break, AEW World Champion CM Punk made his way to the ring and tried to confront MJF. However, MJF suddenly left the ring and went through the crowd before CM Punk came on his way.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer discussed the situation and noted that some television broadcast partners might be unhappy with the final part of the promo.
“They (Warner Bros. Discovery executives) had a big party last night after the show and everybody seemed happy, but I wonder how many of them will be like, you know, just as an example, like TSN in Canada. Some of those swear words got through on live television, and they’re not going to be happy with that.“
The Spotlight can confirm that this MJF promo is a worked shoot promo. AEW’s next pay-per-view is All Out, but the exact date has not been announced yet. Seems like CM Punk will defend his AEW World Championship against MJF at AEW All Out.
We will update you when we receive more details. Stay tuned with The Spotlight.
