MJF has claimed that his rivalry with one particular former World Champion will go down as one of the greatest in the history of professional wrestling.
CM Punk made his debut in All Elite Wrestling in November 2021 and initially engaged in short rivalries with Darby Allin and Eddie Kingston. However, come November, the former WWE star and MJF began trading barbs on the microphone and the fun didn’t stop for months.
The two men created gold before they even stepped into the ring together. Although, their two matches delivered for fans in spades. On February 2nd, MJF handed Punk his first AEW defeat, in Chicago no less. But of course the rivalry wasn’t done there. The pair met one more time at Revolution a month later in a bloody Dog Collar Match which saw Punk pick up the win.
Speaking on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, MJF was asked about Punk and the current controversy surrounding the former World Campion. While the star pleaded no comment to his rival’s recent issues, he did name their rivalry as not only the best in AEW history, but one of the greatest in wrestling history.
“What I will say is that me and CM Punk and the greatest feud in the history of the company and I don honestly think it will go down as one of the greatest feuds of all-time.”
During the conversation MJF also addressed his speculation around his contract, and what his new agreement means for his ‘bidding war in 2024.’
