While promoting this Saturday’s Full Gear event, MJF shared his thoughts on Jon Moxley and denies signing a contract extension with AEW.

Saturday’s co-headliner spoke with Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post about Full Gear and his opinion of opponent Jon Moxley:

This was a guy who during the height of the pandemic was defending his title, bleeding, sweating profusely in barbaric episodic week-to-week matches in front of no one, to a roar of nothing. And he was still able to have people talking about the three letters that are AEW. That’s a guy who deeply cares about the fan base. That’s a guy who deeply cares about professional wrestling. So, in that aspect, I’m over the moon that I’m wrestling this guy.

MJF covered many subjects in the interview including the different crowd reactions he has received since his return at All Out and why it would be a mistake to change his presentation because of that response.

He reiterated that his contract expires on January 1, 2024, and denies signing an extension but is being paid a lot more after returning two months ago:

I know the truth. I most certainly haven’t. I think that wrestling fans are kind of just doing that to kid themselves. So maybe they feel a little less heartbroken as things are going on.

Now I’ll tell you this, bonus and brownie points from Tony Khan for paying me what he’s paying me now with no extension. He did not have to do that.

The Full Gear pay-per-view takes place from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey this Saturday with WrestleTix reporting nearly 10,700 tickets being distributed, so far.
