MJF continues to discuss the bidding war of 2024.
The AEW World Champion continued his reign of terror by walking out of Double or Nothing still holding the title, defeating Darby Allin, “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry and Sammy Guevara in a four-way match at the pay-per-view.
MJF Makes Latest Claim He Might Leave AEW For WWE
Following the victory, MJF appeared alongside Tony Khan at the post-show media scrum. The World Champion discussed his future in wrestling, which may already be winding down for the generational talent. The winner of the Four Pillars match then referenced his accomplishments in the ring, along with stating that he is happy with how it has all played out:
“I’m dead serious. If I literally retire today, this is not hyperbole, I’ve had one of the best professional wrestling runs in the history of the business, that’s a fact. Best oratory exhibitions, best Iron Man match, best singles dog collar match, tonight I had the best four-way. Also, some of the best rivalries in the history of the sport; Cody Rhodes, Wardlow, CM Punk, Danielson, and that’s just to name a few. I’m pretty sure if I called it quits, I’ve had a Hall of Fame career, which is why, quite frankly, when I say ‘take my ball and go home,’ earmuffs Tony, everybody thinks I’m talking about WWE.
MJF then referenced higher-ups in WWE and how they are interested in signing him to the rival promotion. The World Champion then went back to discussing quitting wrestling, but someone has to dethrone him first:
Now, does Nick Khan want me to work in his company? Sure. Does Triple H want me to work in his company? Sure. [Looking at Tony], calm down, it’s fine, or maybe it’s not, but I’m kind of bored of this sport and I’m bored of the lack of respect from professional wrestling fans, so when I say ‘take my ball and go home,’ I mean literally, just hang it up, and f*ck up the lineage of this title. Frankly, I don’t know if anybody is worthy of beating me for this thing.
Now, I’m not just going to hand it away, why would I do that? I earned this thing. Please, by all means, take it off of me, somebody put me out of my misery. Until then, we’ll see what happens,”
