Cody Rhodes was part of AEW in the beginning before rejoining WWE, and he could see MJF do the very same thing.
Cody Rhodes Sees MJF Joining WWE
There were lots of questions when AEW was first introduced. The company continues to grow, while learning along the way.
Rhodes left AEW after opting to not re-sign. Instead, he returned to WWE and quickly was featured towards the top.
While speaking with Peter Rosenburg, Rhodes felt MJF would eventually sign with WWE.
“I think one day you will see MJF in WWE,” said Rhodes. “One thing I’m really proud of him for is, for those who don’t know, MJF was one of my recruits.”
“Probably the one I’m the most excited about just because [of] his potential, his personality and his overall professionalism is beaming. One thing I’m proud of him doing is, if you notice he’s put on a lot of muscle and he’s put it on safely over the last year and a half.”
“And when he does make that jump, and I don’t know when that is, but if he comes to WWE. he’ll have to stand across from guys like Drew McIntyre.”
“You have to stand across from guys like Omos. Or, gosh, Brock Lesnar.”
For the most part, Rhodes is naming some of the top names in WWE. Well, maybe not Omos; but, he continues to improve.
MJF’s AEW deal was to end next year. While not confirmed, many think he re-signed.
At Worlds End on December 30, MJF will look to beat Samoa Joe again. MJF is in lots of pain, therefore we might get a new champion before the year concludes.
So, is Cody Rhodes right that MJF will eventually leave AEW for WWE?
