WWE commentator makes massive claim about MJF

Last updated

A WWE commentator has given his take on the situation regarding MJF and the All Elite Wrestling Championship and company in general.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman won the AEW Championship in the main event of the Full Gear PPV, and Booker T believes it is probably for the best of the company going forward.

Speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, he said: “I like that kid, I really like everything about MJF. I had a chat with him on the Jericho cruise a couple of years ago and I thought this kid was a student of the game” the 5-time WCW Champion began.

“So I heard a little bit of the press conference that he did after the match. I didn’t see the match, but I did hear some of the press conference on YouTube. He said the ship has been righted and I think that’s what that company needs more than anything, I think they need to get on a track where people focus on the show as opposed to the drama that’s going on or just the individuals” Booker added.

“When you got a show, it’s got to be focused on everything that’s going on, and everybody on that show, in order to make it successful. When you get to a point where there is only one person being thought about, it can be a problem” the WWE NXT commentator added.

“Those fans didn’t start chanting that CM Punk chant for no reason when The Young Bucks came out. It was like they were picking sides as far as, you know, this is what we want. We want wrestling, and we don’t want drama” Booker T concluded.

It remains to be seen if Maxwell is the answer that All Elite needs, but it does appear to be the most positive that people have been speaking about the promotion since the ALL OUT issues.
