CM Punk is one of the greatest wrestlers to step foot inside the squared circle. Going toe-to-toe with him is not easy. However, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, better known as MJF, is trying to get the better of Punk. The two AEW superstars have been involved in a heated feud recently.

They even indirectly referred to WWE Superstars to fire shots at each other. Last month, in a segment, MJF told Punk that he has always been the second-best throughout his career, whether it was to the “You can’t see me Man” (John Cena) or the “King of Kings” (Triple H).

Later, in the segment, Punk fired shots at ‘The Salt of the Earth’. CM Punk claimed that the only way MJF is going to be number one is if they all wait long enough for Tony Khan to have a daughter so that MJF can marry her.

This looked like an indirect reference to Triple H and his marriage with the daughter of the WWE chairman, Vince McMahon. As this rivalry is getting interesting, AEW may book a match between MJF and Punk.
