Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso spoke to AEW wrestler MJF ahead of last night’s Dynamite, and he discussed his plans for pursuing the world title after eliminating Chris Jericho. Below are some highlights.

MJF on his plans for the world title: “I’m going to get to that world title. I should be world champion right now. Jon Moxley hit an illegal maneuver on me [at last summer’s All Out]. And the reason I can’t focus on that is because of Chris Jericho. He’s the reason I’m not challenging for the world title.”

On not being overshadowed by Chris Jericho: “I wasn’t going to allow myself to be swallowed up in any of my moments with Chris Jericho. Chris Jericho is incredible, there’s no arguing that, but he has also never had to be in the ring with someone as talented with a mic in their hand as me.”

On eliminating Jericho before pursuing the world title: “I can’t get to that world title if Chris Jericho still exists in my company. That’s my goal once I’m done proving to the world that Sammy Guevara isn’t on my level.”
