MJF solidified himself as a major heel in All Elite Wrestling at Full Gear last month, when he turned on his ‘good friend’ Cody Rhodes.
Despite being a bad guy before and during AEW’s start-up, MJF has always been Cody’s ‘friend’ on the Being The Elite YouTube series, and they aligned in AEW back in October to fight off Chris Jericho’s ‘Inner Circle’.
That turned MJF into a babyface, but he turned on Cody during his match against Jericho for the AEW World Title – throwing in the towel on behalf of Rhodes and then kicking him squared in the nuts post-match.
It is all leading to a match between the two men further down the line, but it looks like it won’t be happening until the next pay-per-view in 2020 – and MJF cut the latest promo in the feud on Dynamite last night.
MJF called Cody one of the best wrestlers of this generation and ‘untouchable’ with a microphone in his hand – apart from the one man he chose to target – MJF himself.

Friedman then quoted Rowdy Roddy Piper and said that “you do not throw rocks at a man with a machine gun” and “when my mouth opens, these bullets don’t miss” – and you just can’t help but believe every word he says.
MJF then insulted Cody’s personal appearance, such as his ‘cat p**s-stained blonde hair and beaver teeth that a helicopter could land on’, and then he went even further and mocked his ‘s***ty-little lisp’ which drew ire from the crowd.
Cody’s challenge for a match was also accepted by MJF, but he would not reveal the stipulations he was to propose – instead he is waiting for January 1 in Jacksonville to do that.
MJF’s ability to draw heat from the live crowd is certainly admirable, and he may be the hottest heel in the business right now.
If AEW have any sense, they’d tie him down to a lifetime contract so he can’t go anywhere – he’s THAT good!
