Backstage News On MJF’s Reputation In All Elite Wrestling

Wade Keller opened up about some topics in regards to the issues that have been surrounding All Elite Wrestling over the past few months during a recent audio show, including how MJF secretly signed a contract extension with the promotion, but it is in the interest of AEW to not reveal it due to the plans they have for MJF in the coming year where MJF will most likely be announcing that he is going to stay with the company. Wade Keller also talked about how MJF got paid huge money and he even got the extension he wanted as Khan put whatever issues he had with MJF behind them, gave MJF what he wanted and went from there.

This is what Wade Keller said:

“The MJF thing isn’t a big topic of conversation. He’s back. My belief is he signed an extension even if he’s telling everybody on and off camera he didn’t. I think he did. Unless someone has seen the contract, I think it’s presumptuous and potentially faulty reporting, to analyze for the MJF situation, as if Tony Khan made a mistake by not signing him to an extension. It’s in their interest to say he didn’t because they have a storyline planned for a year from now where MJF is likely going to announce he is staying at AEW. I think he got paid big money and got that extension he wanted. And Tony put whatever issues he had with how MJF handled the situation aside, gave him what he wanted, and went from there.”

Wade Keller also discussed how MJF is someone Tony Khan trusts to do media interviews and how MJF can even be a locker room leader and represent the younger talent and he feels MJF will be with All Elite Wrestling beyond 2023 and that it is a done deal.

This is what Wade Keller said:

“And obviously, MJF is getting big pops, but he’s someone who obviously Tony Khan trusts putting out in the media to do approved interviews. MJF is very articulate, and a student of the game and is someone who, when he’s happy with his contract is tight with Tony and that they get along. So he’s somebody who, because of his prominence right now, with the TV time he gets and how young he is, and the crowd reactions, he’s got some things working for him that that certainly can move him in the direction of representing the younger wrestlers in locker room leadership. But even with everything that went on this summer, I think MJF is going to grow into a locker room leader. I think he’s going to be in AEW beyond 2023. My hunch is that that’s a done deal at this point.”

Wade Keller then discussed how MJF is not like the other AEW wrestlers who stirs up controversies and issues and how he is actually less of a problem than The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega and how he isn’t super political, just ambitious, which works for the stability of the AEW locker room.

This is what Wade Keller said:

He really isn’t a problem in the locker room like Sammy Guevara has been for instance or Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa have been. That’s not him. He’s actually less of a problem than The Bucks and Kenny. Kenny is more political than his reputation in terms of protecting his turf and not just being a laid back kind of quirky guy. He’s more political [and] MJF is ambitious, but not super political. And so that works to locker room stability too, especially if I’m right in my speculation and my hunch and my belief that he has signed a multi-year extension and just isn’t saying so.”
