MJF Believes AEW World Title Is Much More ‘Iconic’ Than Stanley Cup

10 months ago By Sports Desk

In a recent interview with PIX11 News, AEW (All Elite Wrestling) superstar MJF didn’t cut words when discussing the significance of the AEW World Title. The charismatic wrestler claimed that the prestigious championship belt holds more weight than the NHL’s Stanley Cup, the trophy awarded to the National Hockey League’s playoff champions. The Stanley Cup has been a revered icon in the sports world since its inception in 1893. However, according to MJF, who was on air to promote the AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam event, the AEW title’s importance eclipses that of the historic hockey trophy.

During the course of the conversation, MJF, who is known for his brash attitude, offered the PIX11 News anchor an opportunity to hold the championship belt. He cautioned her that the belt is a heavy object, weighing in at a solid 15 pounds. When the anchor mentioned the Stanley Cup and questioned the propriety of touching the AEW title, MJF was quick to express his opinion. He emphasized that his championship belt is far more significant and iconic, going so far as to suggest that it could be renamed the “Maxi Cup” in honor of himself, thereby implying its grandeur when compared to the Stanley Cup.

Beyond discussing the comparative importance of the AEW World Title, MJF also previewed his upcoming match against fellow professional wrestler Samoa Joe. MJF couldn’t resist taking a dig at his opponent, referring to him disparagingly as a “fat tub of goo.” Further underscoring his lack of respect for Samoa Joe, MJF encouraged fans to actively boo him during their match at the AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam event.

The comments made by MJF, while provocative, are not entirely surprising considering his persona. He has built his career on a blend of arrogance and talent, often stoking controversy with his brash claims and actions. However, his assertion that the AEW World Title is more iconic than the Stanley Cup is sure to raise eyebrows, especially among long-time sports enthusiasts.

The Stanley Cup has been a symbol of excellence in hockey for well over a century. Awarded annually to the NHL’s playoff champions, the Cup is a symbol that transcends the sport, known even to those who are not regular hockey fans.

Meanwhile, the AEW World Title is still relatively new in the sports world, given that All Elite Wrestling was founded only a few years ago in 2019. However, the championship has quickly gained status as one of the most coveted prizes in the professional wrestling landscape, in no small part because of the high-caliber talent competing for it.

While some might find MJF’s comparison between the AEW World Title and the Stanley Cup audacious, it does point to the growing influence and reach of All Elite Wrestling in the sports entertainment world. The company has amassed a significant following in a short span of time, drawing not just from the traditional wrestling audience but also attracting new fans to the genre. It has managed to snag major talent from other wrestling promotions and has consistently put on matches that garner critical acclaim.

As for MJF, his controversial comments will undoubtedly add fuel to the fire of his ongoing feud with Samoa Joe. Fans attending the AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam event are already gearing up for a confrontational, high-octane match. And given MJF’s knack for stirring the pot, the wrestling world will be watching not just the bout itself but also the drama that is sure to unfold in the lead-up to it.
