He’s gonna use the chip on Roman


gerardatron

Imagine Corbin attacking Roman, the Bloodline chasing him off, then MJF running in with an AEW referee…


Foreign-Detective855

Being idealistic, I wouldn’t mind seeing MJF as the catalyst for an AEW/WWE crossover event


christmascaked

For real. Hell, if he **cost** Roman the titles? He’d go down in history, I think. Just because of what it’d represent.

Russo: "I FUCKING KNEW IT!"


Transitionals

Fuck that will be insane


Brabochokemightwork

If only we get ‘Sympathy for the devil’ playing while MJF makes his entrance


SleestakLightning

The more he starts to mention WWE the more I'm convinced he's already signed an extension with AEW.


Baggzio

I mean the fact that Tony Khan himself brought up the whole contract thing in that return voicemail thing almost assuredly means he’s re-signed him to a new deal, there are almost no cases in any sport where someone will get a new contract for more money on the same length of time so yeah it’s a pretty safe bet that he’s already signed an extension. Also I’m pretty sure that they wouldn’t actually let him go out and there talk about it so openly if it was actually a real thing.


aggr1103

Especially considering how Tony went off at the end of the scrum about WWE contacting his contracted talent. People doubt Tony but he really isn’t playing games.


essex_ludlow

Agreed. Just because he’s a mark doesn’t mean he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Him and his family runs two other sports franchises FFS.


crazygypsy237

Most Fulham fans hate TK and the Jags are shit and disfuctional. Theres not really any precedent of knowing what they are doing.


essex_ludlow

Their business is making money... and year over year Jaguar franchise is growing. https://www.statista.com/statistics/195269/revenue-of-the-jacksonville-jaguars-since-2006/ I don’t know anything about soccer, so I won’t comment. Slightly out of topic... while many of us, including me, hated VKM’s booking, you can’t deny that he made a shitload of money for the last few years, especially due to the Saudi deal.


crazygypsy237

my guy, every nfl franchise is growing year over year. You need to be actively trying to not make money in that league to lose revenue. Its not an indication that the Khan family is well run. One of the best barometers we have of a team being well run is really their performance and the Jags have had back to back no1 picks


Kingslayer2779

I think the indication that the Khans can run a business is the fact that Shad is fucking billionaire lol. Hes one of the few who didn’t have a subsantial inheritance either


crazygypsy237

Business and sport franchise are 2 very different things


icemankiller8

Every nfl franchise grows it means nothing


icemankiller8

He runs two of the worst franchises that constantly waste money


Jreynold

Which is why worked shoots don't work! Once it's on TV it's just another storyline. Might as well just do a good storyline!


MaddyPerch

Nah dude, this is still working tons and tons of people


JGspot

IANAL but did graduate law school. I know it's all kayfabe but if two parties already have an agreement in place there cannot be an increase in demanded money without some change to the consideration being offered by the other party. In other words, if mjf had a deal with aew, and then Tony said he would give him more money for mjf to finish out his contract, unless mjf offers something else in return for the increased money Tony is giving him, there is nothing holding tony to the increased amount of money


UsidoreTheLightBlue

What. TK can at any time slide a new contract across someone’s desk saying he’ll double the salary for the same tenure they have left. That absolutely can happen. Now will it happen? Almost certainly not. Not because he can’t, but because it’s generally bad business.


RedmondSurvivor

No shit. The whole thing was that TK was willing to pay him more if he signed an extension, which MJF's camp was well aware of. But they won't want that revealed publicly because they are clearly still playing up this bidding war angle. And they'll probably have MJF as champion at that time to add to the drama of him taking the title hostage.


bryan_pieces

He’s definitely signed an extension for a lot more money. TK is not THAT stupid.


ferpari

Yeah, you don't fuck around this stuff so openly if you don't have a long term contract. Most wrestlers that are thinking about jumping ship usually just go radio silence until something gets signed


TheRealDickChixadore

Haha I saw you post and was like “wait, was this MJF tweet referenced in the Steelers sub?”. It’s like running into a coworker at Walmart when you see a regular contributor from one sub on another sub. Edit: Meant to add that I completely agree with you. He’s almost certainly extended.


SleestakLightning

I feel like it's a mindfuck for any r/steelers poster to see me posting anywhere else, haha.


RusticBelt

They repeated his line about the bidding war of 2024 in a video package on Rampage. Surely they wouldn't do that if they were uncertain about where he's going.


thebobbyshaw33

He’s still promoting WWE for free which makes AEW look incredibly small lol


wizsoxx

Aews champion is champion of just the world. Wwes champion is champion of the whole UNIVERSE. Case closed. /s for the sensitive even though it should be obvious.

Brief-Web-676

Nah bro, in an industry like wrestling, a career-ending injury is always potentially one day away. If you can get a big money contract, you take it immediately.


Mjh1021

I mean who knows what will happen in the next 2 years, get the bag now while you can


KuribohKutie

Ahh yessir ☝️


oysterthins

Throw em up for Biff


eei619

Biff Busick All Elite confirmed


inbredandapothead

People were really getting mad at him for talking about the bidding war of 2024 and now he’s out here live tweeting Smackdown this man is sick I love it


itsmekelsey_x

Ah yessir. He acknowledges The Bloodline. ☝🏻


Brabochokemightwork

Roman: Acknowledge me *Crowd cheering* MJF: listen guys I can’t hear my boy leke over here so maybe you can shut up?


DanTheMan901

My Dawg Jacob Friedman


TheyCallMeYDG

MJF and Sami would be such a funny tandem as honorary uso’s


FETTYSNACKS

Uce


ChickenNougatCream

Ahyessir


crap4you

☝🏻


eggy_mceggy

He's such a wildcard that TK let him be the first person to come out on Dynamite after AEW's biggest shitshow just happened :S


10024618

If MJF can acknowledge our Tribal Chief you have no reason not to


Wes-Man152

Future honorary uce


leafs81215

I’m on the fence on this stuff. Is it really wise for a top guy under an AEW contract to shill for WWE in his promos and on Twitter? On the other hand, it’s never been done before and it’s fascinating to watch. I don’t know what to think.


FyreWulff

They're the only other promotion that could reasonably be in a 'bidding war' with AEW. Nobody would buy MJF teasing Impact outbidding AEW, with respect to Impact.


wizsoxx

Itd be like julian newmans press conference announcing where hes going to play basketball lol


Scavgraphics

It doesnt' do any real harm, I'd say. There isn't a single person who watches AEW that isn't aware of WWE...that's what being the market leader is about.... In marketing terms, him comparing AEW to WWE puts them in a level TO be compared, lifting AEW in perception...it's #2...but of course it is...but it's a #2 that you think about when you thnk about #1. It's why WWE doesn't mention AEW in any real way....that would raise them in perception to WWE's level. Now, that's all marketing/advertising...in wrestling terms...it riles up the AEW tribe, and that's good business for MJF.


Downbound92

MJF's favorite announcer is Corey Graves


-OleOleOle-

I thought Biff came back.


BowlOfLoudMouthSoup

This makes me happy as a Jewish man. I am a fan of MJF and the Bloodline. I hope MJF can be an honorary “Jewce”.


Scavgraphics

I mean, dude.. We got the Wise Man right there.


bryan_pieces

THROW EM UP! BIFF!


Citizen_Crow

He's gone full meta


SerLutz

I’m really not a fan of all this WWE talk of MJF. Some of it from time to time it’s ok for the cheap heat, but the less the better.


christmascaked

A really good point imo. It’ll lose impact and just come off as annoying while diminishing AEW. Unless TK and HHH are able to put together a combo show, it should slowly get downplayed until we get closer to 24.


XPacEnergyDrink

What’s in 24


unbreakable0702

I agree. It gets old after a while. I also think MJF goes to WWE in the next 5 years or so. If he dosen't, then I will still be a fan of his.


NewRoryAndMalDrop

Look I fantasy book Roman keeping the Universal Title to Mania 40 which would be 2024…… Just fucking imagine if it’s Maxwell who takes it off of him


christmascaked

I’d cope with two more years of terror for that.


wizsoxx

Terror? Acknowledge him☝️


ghost18867

Your theme music sucks btw


SomeIrishFiend

Yeah, he's tied down for another few years


Tsuku

Surely to God he signed an extension if he's just gonna keep this up lol


[deleted]

I’m better than Uce And you know it.


VTCruzer

YES SIR EVERYONE LOVES BIFF BUSICK THROW ONE UP ☝️


wizsoxx

Aknowledged☝️. Its like mjf read a manuel on how to win me over & decided to finally pull the trigger.


NaytNavare

So... Who is going to turn this vague tweet into some kind of conspiracy theory? Edit: APPARENTLY I need to watch Smackdown to get certain references. xD My bad, friends!


Minimania18

It is a reference to the Bloodline. He tweeted this right after their segment on Smackdown


NaytNavare

Ahhh. Thank you. I have not watched WWE for three or something years, did not get the reference. I thought it was just goofing.


Minimania18

It's alright. He's live-tweeting Smackdown to get some heat.


sloggins

Roman “Acknowledge Me.” MJF “I’m not gonna acknowledge shit you fucking mark Dwayne Johnson wannabe phony.”


SamVanDam611

Nah, dude. This went up way too soon after the tweet. Found MJF's reddit account


Economy-Injury-8182

MJF be having the best walkout song in AEW. change my mind fam.
