• MJF’s Pipebomb Promo Actually Backfired On AEW
On Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF cut his own version of the pipebomb promo.
MJF ripped Tony Khan for paying ex-WWE guys more money than him, even though he’s been carrying the company since the beginning and no one is better than him.
MJF also questioned if he would get treated better if he was an ex-WWE wrestler.
He claimed he’s the 2nd biggest minute-for-minute draw in AEW. He then said wrestlers in the back can have his spot because he doesn’t want to be here anymore.
According to the Wrestling Observer, MJF getting cheered by the fans actually backfired on AEW, as this scripted promo was meant to get more heat on MJF, but it ended up making All Elite Wrestling look ‘uncool’:
“The key is that MJF was wildly cheered by the end of the promo, particularly when talking about ex-WWE guys who can’t lace his boots.
A few days earlier, Kris Statlander got a major babyface pop when talking about her being with the company from early on while Ruby Soho came later, and resulted in Soho being booed in their match and even more after winning.
This was clearly not the plan, but with the crowd cheering MJF, it made the promotion seem uncool. If MJF got a heel reaction, it would be different.”
