• “He’s not as good as he thinks he is” – Chris Jericho On MJF
About a month ago, MJF and his contract situation with AEW were some of the most talked about things in pro-wrestling today.
However, all that buzz is gone because so many things have happened since then (Sasha Banks’ WWE release, Jeff Hardy’s DUI arrest, the Vince McMahon investigation & more).
During an interview with talkSPORT, former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho had the following to say about MJF:
“After 30 years in this business I’ve learned if it doesn’t have anything to do with me I stay the hell out of it.
I don’t really care. If I had an angle with MJF or if I was involved in the contracts I’d be much more interested in it, but I stay out of it, it has nothing to do with me.
Only thing I will say is a contract is a contract. If every athlete in every sport wanted to be paid more now, then what’s the point of having a contract, you know what I mean? We’ll see how it plays out.
I’m happy with my contract and I know in a year-and-a-half when my contract is done, we’ll have some negotiations to discuss and that’s how it goes. Until then, I want to do the best performances that I can, put on the best shows and the best stories, keep the people interested happy and excited and when that contract is up, I’ll be rewarded for it.
MJF is 26. He has a lot to learn. He’s not as good as he thinks he is and like I said, it really has nothing to do with me but I’m sure he’ll be back.
18 Months is a long time to stay at home and that’s Tony Khan’s prerogative. You’re under contract, you want to stay at home? You can stay at home and not get paid and that’s what happens.
We see it happen in other companies and that’s just how it goes. If you didn’t expect that, then why did you sign your contract in the first place?”
