MJF did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated about his program with CM Punk that started a few weeks ago with their memorable promo segment on AEW Dynamite.
Theres no Batman without Joker. Punk needs me more than I need him. It doesnt get bigger than that, said MJF. Im well aware of it. Pinning his shoulders to the mat would be the biggest highlight of my career.
MJF reflected on the promo segment by noting that they didnt have a script or time limit.
We didnt have a script, said MJF. We didnt have a time limit. Me and Punk were in that ring, just talking, on Thanksgiving Eve. That should have drawn, maximum, 700,000 viewers, and Im being generous. Thats the greatest night to go out with your friends. Its not a night to stay in. Youre with friends or youre with family. But when we were in the ring, over a million people were watching.
MJF did bring up Punks beloved dog, Larry and AEW Womens World Champion Britt Baker in his promo with Punk last week. This is something he addressed.
There is no line, said MJF. People tell me Im a habitual line-stepper. I dont care. My job is to make you dislike me, to make you so mad that you pray someone will shut me up.
