MJF Comments On Backstage Issues Within AEW

MJF speaks to Ariel Helwani about AEW's recent backstage issues.

AEW star MJF recently appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, and was asked about his thoughts on recent backstage issues within the company. 

This comes in the wake of a reported physical altercation backstage in AEW following the All Out press conference, during which blows were said to be exchanged between CM Punk, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Ace Steel.

Speaking on the topic, MJF stated:

"Can they co-exist? Is there separation between church and state? I think that goes out the wayside because what there is at AEW, and to be honest I'm not a part of the team but I watch from the sidelines, give 'em a little ra-ra, because what I care about is me at the end of the day. When I watch the boys and I see how they react in certain situations, it's a team atmosphere. Everyone wants these three letters to be successful. The only three letters I care about are MJF, but everybody in AEW cares about AEW [...] It's palpable when you watch our show. You can feel it. Everyone gives 110%.

"It's a three-year-old company. They want to raise this baby up like in the frickin' 'Lion King' on top of the rock. You feel that. It's palpable. [...] Everybody wants this place to be successful. MJF wants MJF to be successful. It's a team atmosphere."
