Chris Jericho says MJF isn’t as good as he thinks he is & will be watered down if he goes to WWE:

“MJF is 26. He has a lot to learn. He’s not as good as he thinks he is and it really is nothing to do with me but I’m sure he’ll be back. 18 months is a long time to stay at home and that’s Tony Khan’s prerogative. You’re under contract, you want to stay at home? You can stay at home and not get paid and that’s what happens. We see it happen in other companies and that’s just how it goes. If you didn’t expect that, then why did you sign your contract in the first place?

Oh absolutely [his character would be watered down in WWE]. He’s better off staying in AEW. But, again, don’t stick your finger in the light socket. You tell a little kid not to do that and they’re going to do it to see what happens. I’m not going to tell anybody not to go elsewhere because I did it. I did it for years. I did it to come to AEW. I walked away from WWE. When I signed my AEW contract Vince McMahon said ‘Can you get out of it?’ – No, you told me to go here! Same thing happened when I left WCW to come to WWE. Sometimes you got to take a chance and if you believe in yourself and you feel you aren’t getting your dues, then you gotta go elsewhere.”

    Jericho is 100% correct here. WWE is PG-rated, so MJF would have to resort to calling someone a fathead lol.

    Hey, just because it’s happened to basically everyone that came up from NXT in the last few years doesn’t necessarily mean it would happen to MJF too…
