MJF recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion with the popular sports media outlet, the leader of The Pinnacle in All Elite Wrestling spoke about working with Chris Jericho, his AEW World Championship aspirations and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On his AEW World Championship aspirations: “I’m going to get to that world title. I should be world champion right now. Jon Moxley hit an illegal maneuver on me [at last summer’s All Out]. And the reason I can’t focus on that is because of Chris Jericho. He’s the reason I’m not challenging for the world title.”
On working with Chris Jericho in AEW: “I wasn’t going to allow myself to be swallowed up in any of my moments with Chris Jericho. Chris Jericho is incredible, there’s no arguing that, but he has also never had to be in the ring with someone as talented with a mike in their hand as me.”
On how he can’t go after the world title while Jericho is around: “I can’t get to that world title if Chris Jericho still exists in my company.”
