AEW star Wardlow has broken the current wall of silence surrounding the subject of MJF to call his former boss “a piece of sh*t.”
The saga surrounding MJF centres around his apparent desire to leave AEW and head for pastures new – presumably WWE. Rumours swirled in the run-up to Double Or Nothing that the star was set to no show his match with former on-screen bodyguard Wardlow after missing an advertised meet and greet but that did not transpire.
Instead, MJF turned up for his match which saw him take 10 powerbombs and lose before being stretchered out of the arena. He then showed up on the following edition of Dynamite where he cut a stunning promo before punctuating it with a direct message to AEW President Tony Khan as he told Khan to “fire me you f*cking mark.”
Tony Khan has not addressed the MJF situation publicly and again refused the opportunity to do so after Forbidden Door but Wardlow has now made his feelings known and they’re anything but complimentary.
Speaking on Casual Conversations with The Wrestling Classic, Mr. Mayhem said MJF behaviour in and out of the wrestling business is simply unacceptable:
“Honestly, I shouldn’t even give this subject the time of day, and I really don’t care to, but I do understand — people gotta understand, we were together for three years. He was the first three years of my career, he was a big part of my career. So if anybody is allowed to touch on this subject, it probably is me.”
“I’ll just say this, he’s not a good person. He really is a piece of sh*t. It was not enjoyable working with him. He put me through more stress than anything and his behavior inside of the business and outside of the business is unacceptable. But that’s all I’m gonna say about that.”
