Chris Jericho Comments On MJF’s Return To AEW TV

The return of MJF comes months after he cut a promo shoot on AEW President Tony Khan during the June 1 episode of “Dynamite.” Although it was unclear whether the situation was real or part of a storyline, his return seems to confirm it was all a story, with Khan stating during the scrum that he asked MJF to come back because “he’s a big star” and the best thing to do as a company was to bring MJF back for “All Out.”

Jericho also went on to make a very bold claim about the returning star, stating his belief about the future involving MJF’s reaction from the fans.

“I’m a big fan of MJF, I really am,” Jericho said. “I said to him ‘when you come back, you’re going to be a babyface.’ He’s like, ‘I don’t want to be a babyface, I don’t want to be a babyface.’ I was like, ‘It’s going to happen.’ He’s like, ‘I don’t know what to do,’ and I said ‘I’m sure The Rock said the same thing or Steve Austin said the same thing. You can do a babyface comeback. I’ll teach you, it’s easy.’

“It’s easier to make people hate you than it is to make them like you, but once they start hating you, that’s when they really start liking you. He’s almost at that — that’s my prediction. I think he’ll be one of the top babyfaces, whether he wants to be or not, very very soon. A game changer, that’s my opinion.”
