AEW Star MJF Once Again Teases Jumping Ship To WWE As His Current Contract Nears Its End

MJF has become a Superstar as part of the AEW roster, but does he have any interest in being a WWE Superstar? The fan-favourite heel-turned-babyface has once again teased his 2024 plans during a promo...

Since the launch of AEW, MJF has established himself as perhaps the most versatile top talent in the entire pro wrestling industry. A master on the mic and entertaining as hell in the ring, he's the full package and has all the makings of a top WWE Superstar. 

He's long-teased making the leap to WWE when his AEW contract expires in 2024, though it's widely believed that he's simply toying with fans to build heat among the AEW faithful. 

However, it's hard to figure out why he wouldn't go there. These days, Triple H is calling the shots in terms of creative and that means no more abysmal Vince McMahon decisions; the company is also on a hot streak both critically and commercially (after being acquired by UFC owner Endeavor), with ratings higher than they have been in some time. 

In WWE, MJF could become a household name. In AEW...well, the company's ratings are steadily declining, as is attendance at their shows. Tony Khan, meanwhile, continues to have childish outbursts on social media and the general feeling at this is a promotion already heading the way of TNA. 

MJF has previously claimed his contract expires on January 1, 2024, and following his standout AEW World Championship defence against Kenny Omega on Saturday's AEW Collision, he addressed his status in a post-show promo. 

"I’ll be honest. I still don’t know what I’m gonna do for the bidding war of 2024," he teased. "But what I do know. But what I do know is that when I get the opportunity to wrestle the best bout machine. Kenny Omega, it tends to sway my opinions a little bit."

In all honestly, we expect MJF to stay with AEW, with this all building to some sort of storyline. We're not entirely sure why he wouldn't go to WWE beyond loyalty to AEW, though Khan could pull out all the stops financially to keep him around (money talks at the end of the day). 

Still, after seeing how Cody Rhodes and Jade Cargill have been booked since signing with WWE, MJF would arguably be nuts to not go to a company where he could become its top babyface or heel right in time for WrestleMania

Do you think MJF should sign with WWE or is he better off being AEW's top star? As always, you can let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

This is already part of his storyline. It has been since before he even won the title.

Last year when he disappeared for 3 months and everyone thought he was mad and leaving AEW? That was all a swerve. In that part of the story they said Tony Khan paid him millions of dollars to come back, but didn't extend his contract. Personally, I think its all BS. I think he probably gave him a proper raise and also extended his contract in real life.

But as soon as MJF came back he started talking about how he was going to win the world title and hold onto it until his contract was up in January 2024. Then he would use it to hold the company hostage and make Tony Khan pay him even more money, and Tony would have to either do it, or watch MJF go to WWE with the AEW world title.

And here we are, less than 3 months away from his "contract expring", he's just become the longest world title holder in AEW history, and he still has the belt. Of course it's building towards a storyline. It has BEEN the storyline this whole time.
