Chris Jericho has seemingly responded to that epic MJF promo on AEW Dynamite, not so cryptically telling MJF that maybe he’s not as good as he thinks.
After a chaotic weekend in Las Vegas before, during, and after Double or Nothing, the world held its collective breath as AEW Dynamite began after it was announced that MJF was going to talk.
Standing front and centre in the middle of the ring, an irate MJF proceeded to cut down the fans in front of him, the fans watching at home, his colleagues, and even his boss as he played with the boundaries of what is real and what is pro wrestling.
MJF called out Tony Khan over his contract, accusing his boss of hoarding money to give to “ex-WWE guys” who aren’t fit to lace his boots. He continued by asking “hey boss would you treat me better if I was an ex-WWE guy?”
In closing he screamed that he didn’t want to wait until 2024, he wanted out now, begging Khan to fire him:
“Fire me Tony! Fire me you f*cking mark!”
MJF has since been removed from the roster page on AEW’s website and was removed from the opening of AEW Rampage on Friday night.
MJF’s former rival Chris Jericho has issued a public comment on social media following MJF’s earth-shattering promo, but refused to reference the former leader of The Pinnacle by name:
“For the record @AEW is the best sports entertainment company I’ve ever worked for & @TonyKhanis the best boss I’ve done business with. If certain talents feel they’re under compensated, maybe ur not as good as u think u are. Go elsewhere PLEASE. You’ll be begging to come back!”
