WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff believes MJF is now ‘in a universe all his own’, following MJF’s explosive “Fire Me, you f*cking mark!” promo on AEW Dynamite.
Speaking on the latest episode of his Strictly Business podcast, available via AdFreeShows, Eric Bischoff was full of praise for MJF following the incredible segment, and now believes the AEW pillar is in a league of his own.
“In my opinion, MJF is without peer. He is so good. There are a handful, one or two people in WWE who are capable of catching up to that, but there aren’t many. He’s in a universe all his own, in my opinion.”
Bischoff has been complimentary of MJF in the past, noting how MJF and WWE’s Becky Lynch ‘create art’ on social media.

Eric Bischoff conceded that he did not know if the MJF situation was real or all part of the show, with the WCW legend admitting that he did not care, as he was enjoying the ride either way.
“Where is this one going to go? I have no idea if it’s real, if it’s not, if it’s scripted. I have an opinion and it was probably something that started out as very, very real and then they woke up one day and then both of them were painted into a corner and it was like, how the hell do we get out of this? That’s just an opinion. I don’t know if I’m right or wrong, don’t care actually because the journey and potential for this journey is off the frickin’ charts.”
Eric Bischoff recently raised the ire of AEW owner Tony Khan, after suggesting that AEW Champion, CM Punk was the biggest financial flop in wrestling, to which Khan responded, “That’s f*cking bullsh*t” at the post-Double or Nothing media scrum.
Bischoff has since fired back once more, challenging Khan to come on his podcast, telling the AEW boss to give him a call.
