A Disparaging Remark from MJF to Fuego

The root of Del Sol’s issues with Maxwell seems to be traced back to an incident early in their AEW tenure. Del Sol recalled a moment when MJF made a “weird disparaging remark” in front of several people backstage.

While he believes MJF might not even remember the incident, it left a lasting impression on Del Sol. He mentioned, “Some people are going to go out of their way to critique you or congratulate you or help you out. He kind of stuck to himself in that regard, never really talked to me.”

Despite this, Del Sol was adamant about separating personal feelings from professional opinions. He reiterated that while they might not get along personally, he would never deny MJF’s exceptional talent in the wrestling world.
