MJF Loves Everything WWE Is Doing (Even NXT 2.0), Says Bruce Prichard Produces Incredible Television

MJF keeps a close eye on the competition and he loves what they're putting out.

AEW star MJF has made it a point to remind people that he becomes a free agent in 2024, often (and not so subtly) alluding to WWE opening up their checkbook to lure him away from Tony Khan and the All Elite crew. That said, MJF remains steadfast in his businesslike approach, vowing to go wherever the money is.

Speaking with Ariel Helwani, MJF expressed his respect for Bruce Prichard, the Executive Director of Raw and SmackDown. He also said that even though he can't legally say if WWE's reached out to him, he will confirm that there is a lot of interest in him.

"Well, Bruce Prichard and me, this is a shoot, Bruce Prichard and me go way back. When he was in MLW, he was one of the lead producers there and he would watch me do promos and he was floored by me. Absolutely enamored by me. I was the prettiest girl at the ball. We would just sit down and shoot the shit. I love Bruce. I think Bruce is a hell of a guy and has a hell of a mind. I think he produces incredible television. So yes, I've talked to Bruce multiple times. As far as have I been reached out to, legally it's not smart for me to answer that question but what I can say emphatically is that there is an absurd amount of interest in me. Tony Khan knows that. Tony Khan claims he's not afraid of that and that's good, so I hope you're not afraid to shell out a lot of fucking money," he said.

Claiming to have his finger on the pulse of everything happening in the wrestling industry, MJF says that he loves everything WWE is doing and believes AEW is currently the hotter product because they have him and a number of other "fresher" faces.

"See, I think WWE is doing great. I love everything WWE's doing. I just think we are fresh and we have fresh faces that people haven't seen before. I think right now everything that Vince [McMahon] and Bruce Prichard are putting out there is absolutely incredible. I love it. I love NXT 2.0. I love Raw, I love SmackDown, I love what Roman's doing. I think Roman's putting out some great work. Paul Heyman, fellow member of the tribe, absolutely killing it. Sorry about what's going on with Brock [Lesnar], you deserve better than that. I think they're putting out a great product. I think the big difference, quite frankly is that AEW has MJF. That's the biggest difference-maker you could possibly have," MJF said.

Asked if he was joking about his appreciation for NXT 2.0, MJF said that he genuinely loves WWE programming, even correcting Helwani when he referred to the company's Premium Live Events as PPVs. Whatsmore, MJF called the makeout competition between Indi Hartwell, Dexter Lumis, Persia Pirotta, and Duke Hudson "gripping television."

"I genuinely love WWE programming. It's great. There's so many charisma machines on that program. I think it's a great show. They had a makeout competition this past Tuesday; gripping television. How could you not like a makeout competition? I practically had a makeout competition with that hot redhead a couple of weeks ago. Who doesn't like a good makeout sesh? So, I'm enjoying it. I think Bruce is doing a hell of a job and at the end of the day, quite frankly, there's a lot of guys there that are developing and trying to figure out who they are as human beings. Not who they are as acts, but who they are as human beings and it's fun to watch these young guys develop and figure it out," he said.

MJF is currently feuding with Wardlow after his former bodyguard cost him his match against CM Punk at Revolution. MJF is vowing to make Wardlow ride out his contract at home so that everyone forgets who he is.
