Despite boasting that he barred AEW for more money and threatened to move out, Tony Khan thinks MJF is the company’s best problem ever.
“Fans love MJF,” Khan explained “Raslin'” host Brandon Walker. “They love him, hate him, he has fans all over the world who want to watch MJF wrestle and whether he loves him or hates him, it doesn’t matter.”
Khan confirmed that the Casino Ladder match winner will be in Wednesday night’s “Dynamite” Grand Slam special, adding that MJF is “doing it” on the title picture. He also explained that the Casino Ladder match win meant that MJF “will have a shot at the world title, I will approve that match whenever he wants.”
When asked to clarify, Tony doubled down, saying “Any time, any sanctioned event” could give MJF his title opportunity.
“It’s a world with live television, pay-per-view events, all these occasions. It’s exciting to have a competitor out there, and he has a big championship match tonight on ‘Dynamite. “
Jon Moxley will face Brian Danielson in the final of the Tournament of Champions on Wednesday night. The winner will be crowned the new AEW World Champion.
“It certainly makes it more interesting to have two of the world’s best wrestlers, one after the other for the World Championships,” Khan said, “and MJF is emerging in the background as a top contender, right to challenge for Is. title at any time. It’s a very interesting title picture in AEW.”
