As previously noted, MJF did an interview with Ariel Helwani and talked about his time working with WWE Senior Vice President Bruce Prichard. MJF also gave praise to the current WWE product.
It is being reported by Fightful Select that AEW President Tony Khan had a “heated conversation” with MJF in regards to the interview. The site noted the following…
“We’re told that the contract status of MJF is what has left him frustrated of late, but that Tony Khan took issue with the interview being set up without notifying AEW’s PR team of such. Those that we spoke to didn’t think there would have been an issue with the subject matter or the interview in general if that were the case.”
Khan was said to have spoken with MJF for over an hour. AEW talent need to get approval from the company’s media department before doing podcasts/interviews.
