News on WWE interest in MJF
WWE reportedly has significant interest in top AEW star MJF.
WWE TV partners FOX and the USA Network also reportedly have interest in WWE signing MJF, according to Andrew Zarian of F4Wonline.com. It was noted that MJF’s current program with CM Punk has brought in a new level of interest from non-pro wrestling followers at both networks.
MJF responded to a tweet on Zarian’s report and indicated that his AEW contract is up in 2024. He wrote, “The bidding war of 2024.”
It was noted by Zarian that a reliable source at one of the networks recently commented on the November 17 MJF – Punk Dynamite promo segment and stated, “I actually stopped what I was doing and listened to him. I don’t think I have done that with pro wrestling in a long time.”
There were previously similar conversations about interest in MJF within WWE, but apparently that interest is at an all-time high right now.
“He has everything we would want. It really depends on if he could be that same person on WWE TV. We want new stars to be the focus within the next few years. That’s the plan,” one WWE source reportedly stated.
MJF has been with AEW since 2019, and is considered to be one of their top homegrown stars, with one of the brightest futures. He will be in action on tonight’s Winter Is Coming edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT, going up against Dante Martin in a match for the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF has won the ring for the past two years.

I suppose a watered down MJF can still get over on Monday nights
Lol this is like Manchester United coming in for Trent Alexander Arnold. A once good team would not be the place to go if you’re on THEE newest good team…
AEW is a wasteland. May as well go to a legitimate promotion to prove your worth.
MJF, good luck with making lemonade out of lemons, if you choose to go to WWE; because, you’ll be cutting Crystal Light promos for the rest of your career. 😂
If a wrestler doesn’t have the body or the size to fight Roman Reigns in some awful program where Roman will win anyways, then at best Vince will create some garbage ring name for you, give you 2 minute Raw matches, and stick you with Randy Orton in some stupid on/off tag team feud that he’ll just RKO you constantly at random.
Stick with AEW, or else good luck with the WWE, rebranded Monpellier Jermaine Flutterlfy.
