MJF has made it no secret that his contract is up in 2024, even making reference to it on AEW television.
According to Andrew Zarian on Mat Men Podcast, WWE and its TV partners (FOX & USA) reportedly have interest in signing MJF once his contract expires. MJF has referenced WWE and talking to Bruce Prichard in interviews and promos on TV.
Speaking to CBS Sports' Shakiel Mahjouri, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about the report and WWE's interest in MJF.
"I think that's great. I encourage that," he said. "I think they should keep talking about him because he's a wrestler that's a big part of AEW and is signed here for a few more years. So I think please keep giving us that buzz because he's been getting great ratings for his segments and those have also been featuring CM Punk pretty regularly as they continue to interact. They've had a war of words and now there'll be on opposite sides of this huge trios match where you got Sting [and] Darby Allin teaming with CM Punk against MJF and FTR. I think that's great. You know, [WWE] had some wrestlers I really wanted to sign there and I signed him, Bryan Danielson and Adam [Cole] and Ruby Soho."
MJF won his third straight Dynamite Diamond Ring at AEW Winter is Coming, defeating Dante Martin in the finals. He is set to team with FTR against Sting, Darby Allin, and CM Punk at AEW Holiday Bash.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Holiday Bash beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
