AEW star Maxwell Jacob Friedman(MJF) has been expressing his distaste towards working for the company and he has been demanding Tony Khan to release him. Now, the controversial former WWE star Ryback shared an interesting piece of information. The Big Guy spread an unfounded rumor that he probably made up about WWE Chairman Vince McMahon wanting MJF to come in at his “non drug tested current weight” to face Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. Apparently, Bruce Prichard and Johnny Ace have been in touch with Maxwell Jacob Friedman.
Ryback took to his Twitter account and wrote:
Rumor has it @VinceMcMahon is trying to find a way to bring @The_MJF in and keep him on his non drug tested current weight to feud against Cody and Seth for SummerSlam. This is strictly rumor from my “sources”’ but I’ve been assured him and Prichard/Big Johnny have had discussions

MJF made some huge statements
Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF) recently cut an emotional promo about the what went down during “Double or Nothing” weekend. He blasted AEW President Tony Khan and dropped ‘WWE’ bombshell as well.
He questioned why Tony is resistant to pay the man who has been busting his a** all this time, when instead, he hordes all that money to give it to all the “ex-WWE guys who can’t lace up his God d**n boots”. MJF asked Tony if he would like him better if he was an ex-WWE guy. He thinks he shouldn’t have the power to run a wrestling company, he should be behind the guard rail like the fan he is. He doesn’t want to wait until 2024 to wrap up his AEW contract, he wants Tony to fire him right now.
He then screamed into the camera that Tony Khan is a “f**king mark” before the mic got cut off and the show went to commercial. Fans have been shedding praise on the star to make his feelings known and drew comparison to how CM Punk cut the infamous ‘Pipebomb’ promo during his time in WWE.
It was noted that during the commercial break, the newly crowned AEW World Champion CM Punk made his way to the ring and tried to confront MJF. The Salt Of The Earth had no interest in talking to Punk and left through the crowd.
