Tony Khan Condemns MJF’s Actions During AEW Revolution – “It’s Not To Be Taken Lightly”

MJF Tony Khan

Tony Khan does not approve of MJF’s behaviour at AEW Revolution.

Adding to the long list of controversial actions by the AEW World Champion, the polarising star was the buzz of the internet during his match with Bryan Danielson.

Tony Khan Addresses MJF’s Unacceptable Behaviour

Following a unique rendition of the generational talent’s entrance music being played by a classical ensemble, the champion would go on to antagonise the crowd before the 60 minute Ironman match. Targeting a young fan during the match, the World Champion grabbed a drink and proceeded to tip it over the head of the child.

President Tony Khan, who has had well documented issues with MJF in the past 12 months, commented on the incident at the start of the post show press conference.

Khan stated that there has been a discussion regarding what happened, with the events being taken seriously.

“Before we came up here, we had a serious conversation and I mean that. It’s not to be taken lightly. The young man Titus was a real pro about it. We’ll see Titus again in AEW. I believe Titus is actually coming to Sacramento. I was just with him, he was a real champ about it. The champion didn’t act like a champion there. I think Titus was great.”

The animosity between Khan and MJF began in the spring of 2022, with the generational talent reportedly unhappy with his contract. The fallout would result in the future world champion no-showing a meet and greet event before Double or Nothing, with participation in the event itself remaining a mystery.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman would appear in the opening match of the pay-per-view, being squashed by former ally Wardlow. On the following episode of Dynamite, the unhappy AEW star would launch a foul mouthed tirade directed at Khan, which would result in a lengthy absence from TV until the All Out pay-per-view in September.

The holder of the Triple B title has made it clear that he has no loyalty or alliance to AEW, and will accept an offer from the highest bidder. MJF has frequently teased a move to WWE, publicly acknowledging that his contract is up at the end of the year, initiating “The Bidding War of 2024” to see who will sign the world champion for the highest price.
