John Silver doesn’t think MJF is worth an AEW pay raise
With so much going on in the pro wrestling landscape these days, it’s easy to forget that it’s only been a month since AEW star MJF took us all on a roller coaster ride of speculation that he would refuse to appear at AEW Double or Nothing, only to do so, at his fiery speech against AEW owner and CEO Tony Khan on “AEW Dynamite” a few days later. Since then, all has been quiet on the MJF front except for a few comments from those in AEW, with some openly criticizing it while others played coy or offered no comment at all.
The last to talk about the MJF situation? None other than Dark Order’s Jon Silver. During an appearance at a K&S WrestleFest virtual signing, the Meat Man spoke about MJF’s gripes, but not too seriously, and answered whether or not MJF deserved his raise.
“No. He should actually pay the company to be on TV, I think,” Silver said with a laugh. “I’ve known him since he started. He should pay them to be on TV. C is what I think.”
Not only did Silver feel that MJF wasn’t worthy of a raise, but he was quick to point out other “reasons” why MJF may not be the “Salt of the Earth” that he is. he claims to be. It included a story about planes – not the kind of story involving MJF and planes one would expect.
“MJF is up when the plane lands,” Silver said. “He’s up, he’s just standing there, obnoxiously waiting. That’s all I really need to say.
No word on how MJF draws these serious accusations or if he will offer a rebuttal. As noted, the AEW star hasn’t been seen since the June 1 episode of “AEW Dynamite,” and it’s unclear when, or even if, he will return to the promotion.
