In the interview, he notes that Tony Khan “knows where his bread is buttered”, and goes on to say there’s no one in this business more “over” than him. MJF also states he’s one of the best in the business’s history because he doesn’t “spam” moves like he’s on a “video game”.
During the talk, he also notes that he got into wrestling to make money. This is why he won’t be afraid to negotiate this when his contract is up.
MJF AEW Contract – When Will It Expire?
MJF confirms during the interview that his AEW deal is set to expire on January 1, 2024. In addition, he notes that the WWE, “who has an interest” in him will need to take him seriously and give him an offer he “can’t” refuse if they want him.
MJF continues to be one of the best on the mic, currently, and an incredible in-ring performer. It’ll be interesting to see what the next two years bring, and where he’ll head to next.
Another hot superstar in the land of wrestling right now is Ronda Rousey. Ahead of her major WrestleMania 38 match, which is about a week away, the talent has ended up injured.
Ronda Rousey Injured
Ms. Rousey stunned the WWE Universe when she made her in-ring return at this year’s Women’s Royal Rumble. She won the coveted match and chose Charlotte Flair as her WrestleMania 38 opponent.
During a recent Facebook gaming stream, Ronda reveals that she’s suffered a minor injury, recently. A mouth tissue connecting the gums to her upper lip (labial frenulum) has torn.
As such, the former RAW Women’s Champion notes during the stream that she feels fine, but she does also feel sick. She also states that she sounds like crap, due to this.
Ronda Rousey’s WWE History
Ronda Rousey originally debuted in the WWE after the 2018 Women’s Royal Rumble. She’d move on to have a match at that year’s WM (34) against HHH and Stephanie McMahon, with Kurt Angle as her partner.
During the 2018 SummerSlam event, she faced off against Alexa Bliss. She’d win that match and score her first title in the company, the RAW Women’s Championship.
She had a solid reign, defeating contenders like Nikki Bella, Nia Jax, Natalya, Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James.
As RAW Women’s Champion, she, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair participated in a triple threat match at WM 35, becoming the first women ever to main event the WWE’s flagship event. While Becky Lynch scored the win and both titles, all three competitors did a great job that night.
With days away from this year’s WM, here’s hoping Rousey recuperates from this small injury. She and Flair should have an amazing match.
