• Chris Jericho Blamed For ‘Minimalizing’ AEW Main Eventer
On the new episode of his weekly ‘The Jim Cornette Experience’ podcast, James E. Cornette blamed WWF Legend Chris Jericho for trying to turn AEW original MJF into a babyface wrestler, resulting in minimalizing the hottest up and coming star in the company.
Here’s what Jim had to say:
“We heard Chris Jericho came out at that media deal and said ‘Oh, MJF’s gotta be babyface immediately.’ Like anybody who hadn’t been in a wrestling business for 20 years would know that the exact thing that you don’t do with a generational talent like MJF is change him up.
That’s why they like him because they’ve liked what he’s been but if he can take the edge off MJF and diminish his popularity, then he’s got rid of the veteran and now he’s minimalized the up-and-coming prospect.”
MJF is a natural organic heel and absolutely does not want to be a babyface, at least not at this stage of his career.
Here’s what The Wrestling Observer reported on the situation a few days ago:
“There are people in AEW that strongly think they should go with him as a babyface. They feel that he could be a massive babyface. They think that is what he should do now. There are people who believe he could be a generational babyface.”
Chris Jericho is with Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling right from the very beginning of the promotion in 2019 and actually became the first ever AEW World Champion on August 31st 2019.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF) had an independent wrestling (including CZW & MLW) career for a few years, before he also joined AEW right from the company’s start and has since become a major star, who’s main eventing shows and is already rumored to eventually end up in WWE one day.
