Vince McMahon is the CEO of WWE and has the final say in everything that goes on in the company, whether it be related to production, storylines or matches in general. Vince McMahon also possibly removed Omos from Monday Night RAW recently.
MJF is arguably one of the biggest stars in AEW currently. He was previously signed to MLW, where he was contractually obligated not to compete in WWE and Impact Wrestling. However, as AEW did not exist at the time of signing the contract, he was able to work at AEW on the first episode itself. All Elite Wrestling realized they wanted to keep MJF signed for a long time and they made sure of that.
MJF recently spoke to Steel Chair Magazine, where the Salt of The Earth teased that when his AEW contract expires in 2024, he will be listening to offers from other pro wrestling companies.
“Don’t get me wrong, AEW runs deep in me, I don’t want to leave, but I am a businessman at the end of the day, and I can’t help myself if somebody’s got an offer for me, I’m going to listen to it.”
We will have to see whether MJF will stay with AEW after his contract expires in 2024.
