Back in the 90s, the pro-wrestlers would threaten to jump ship to other wrestling promotions if they weren’t given more chances. On tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite, MJF threatened AEW President Tony Khan to give him better Championship opportunities, else he will join WWE.

MJF might jump ship to WWE

MJF made his way tonight with one thought in his mind: to put everyone on notice and demand what he thinks he deserves. Ever since the inception of AEW, ‘The Salt of the Earth’ has been involved in major storylines in one way or another.

However, he has not won a single title in Tony Khan’s company, and it looks like he is done with not being the champion.

MJF cut a promo tonight where he verbally called out AEW President Tony Khan and confessed that he is a good friend and he respects him. However, MJF thinks he is still far away from any title shot in this company.

Eventually, MJF name-dropped WWE Senior VP Bruce Prichard, whom he knows from their days together in MLW.

“I am the past, present, and future of AEW, and that’s why I deserve to be the AEW World Champion. Tony Khan, we’re friends and I love you, buddy. In fact, out of all the Khans in pro wrestling, you’re easily in my top 2.

“However, if you don’t start giving me opportunities I deserve, I have other friends from back in the day. I have an old friend from my MLW days, and his name is Bruce Prichard. And I got Brucie on speed dial.” MJF said.

This comment made the crowd go insane, and it will be interesting to see how things will unfold for MJF after this ‘stunt’.
