MJF On Cody Rhodes Leaves AEW For WWE If He Would Have Hurt With Hell In A Cell


MJF recently spoke to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour and was asked if his good friend Cody Rhodes left AEW for WWE earlier this year.

“The American roller coaster did what it had to do. He’s a businessman, just like MJF. I don’t blame Cody Rhodes for his decision, Cody Rhodes did what’s best for Cody Rhodes and MJF always does what’s best for MJF, so kudos to him,” MJF said of Rhodes’ signing to WWE.

MJF was also asked what he thought of Rhodes wrestling with Seth Rollins with a torn pectoral muscle at WWE Hell In a Cell in June.


“Incredibly brave, incredibly brave,” said MJF.

Helwani then asked if MJF would have done the same.

“Absolutely not,” he replied. “This is what would happen, I would ask for my money, I would go into the ring and then lie on my back. Technically I participated.”

MJF and Cody are good friends in real life and have also worked together in the AEW storylines. They battled together for a loss to Black Taurus and Daga at AAA’s Conquista Total Gira 2019 event, then defeated MJF Rhodes in singles action at AEW’s Revolution 2020 pay-per-view.
