Tony Khan Comments on His Current Working Relationship with MJF in AEW
A recent episode of 105.3 The Fan’s K&C Masterpiece radio show had AEW CEO Tony Khan as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Khan’s thoughts about his current working relationship with MJF in AEW and his praise of MJF’s great work as a wrestler.
“He’s one of the most dislikable people there is. He elicits that emotion for a lot of people. He’s a very challenging personality and very hard to work with, but he’s a great professional wrestler. We saw it last week, that incredible match to kick off Championship Fight Night on Dynamite. MJF is a great wrestler, he showed it out there one-on-one against (Konosuke) Takeshita. It’ll be the ultimate test for a champion, for a pro wrestler, on March 5 at Revolution, in the main event, a 60-minute Iron Man match when MJF goes one-on-one with the greatest technical wrestler in the world, maybe the greatest technical wrestler of all time, ‘The American Dragon’ Bryan Danielson. MJF, if you don’t like him, get ready to see him get put through the ultimate test of punishment. We’ll see what kind of wrestler and champion he is. Knowing, as a fan, you’re going to see Bryan Danielson wrestle for 60 minutes, what a treat.”

Jeff Jarrett Post Tribute to His Late Father Jerry Jarrett
As noted before, legendary wrestling promoter Jerry Jarrett passed away on Tuesday following a lengthy battle with esophagus cancer.
Jeff Jarrett recently posted a tribute in honor of his late father Jerry on Twitter.
“When Things go wrong, as they sometimes will,?When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,?When the funds are low and debts are high,?And you want to Smile but have to sigh.?When care is pressing you down a bit,?Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,?As everyone of us sometimes learns,?And many a failure turns about,?When he might have won if he’d stuck it out,?Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,?You might succeed with another blow.?
Often the struggler has given up,?When he might captured the victor’s cup.?And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,?How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out,?The silver tint of clouds of doubt,?And you never can tell how close you are,?It may be near when it seems afar,?So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,?It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit! (4/4) ~ #Dad
