Tony Khan had “heated discussion” with MJF over interview

Last updated

AEW President Tony Khan and MJF reportedly had a “heated discussion” following Maxwell Jacob Friedman appearing on The Ariel Helwani Show.

Fightful Select recently reported that the AEW owner and top star had some issues backstage after MJF appeared on the podcast.

The site noted: “AEW founder Tony Khan and MJF had a discussion this past weekend that was said to have left both men frustrated.

“The conversation stemmed from MJF’s interview with Ariel Helwani, where the two spoke for over an hour, notably about his contract status with AEW. MJF’s deal runs until 2024, which looks to be a major year for pro wrestling free agency” it was revealed.

“We’re told that the contract status of MJF is what has left the young star 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” Fightful concluded.
