Matt Hardy Has High Praise For MJF

Matt Hardy is all in on the current champion.

MJF is the brand new AEW Champion following his winning match against Jon Moxley at last weekends Full Gear Pay-Per-View. MJF has been with AEW since 2019 and has had a lot of huge moments but none bigger than this. While speaking on his own The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt shared his thoughts on MJF’s big Championship win and stated that he’s excited for his run with the He talked about MJF being the most homegrown talent on the AEW roster, and he believes MJF will be the face of the company for a long time.

It was an interesting move, for sure, but it is very on brand for the MJF character, I think. I’m really excited about MJF’s run as champion. I’m a big fan of Maxwell Jacob Friedman. So it’s gonna be really interesting to see how the people gravitate towards him as champion, and considering he is gonna be the centerpiece of the promotion, it’s gonna be really interesting to see how it does number-wise, from ratings and buy rates and whatever else. But I feel like more than anyone, MJF is the most home-grown AEW talent, even more than Hangman Page because I feel like Hangman Page was the first real homegrown talent that actually won the title, but he also had a big run in Ring of Honor, and he worked in Japan. This is really MJF’s first run on top, and now he is representing AEW as the champ, and I think it’s a good move. I’m all for it, and I truly believe, deep in my heart, I think MJF is gonna be the face of AEW for a long time to come,
