News on MJF’s recent pay raise
As noted, MJF spoke with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour this past week and said he’s now making “a stupid, absurd amount of money” with AEW, and that he received this pay raise without signing a contract extension.
Now new report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter says MJF is making more than $1 million per year.
MJF originally signed with AEW in 2019, but later signed a contract extension that significantly increased his salary over the amount he signed for. His frustration from earlier this year had to do with how he’d risen up the card and outperformed his original deal. His current AW contract reportedly expires on January 1, 2024.
