AEW star Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF) has commented on Vince McMahon’s retirement from the professional wrestling industry.

A few months ago, it was reported that the WWE Board of Directors had begun investigating allegations made against McMahon for apparently having an affair with a former employee.

In July 2022, McMahon announced his retirement from the company, and Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan were named WWE’s new co-CEOs. With Triple H announced as the company’s new chief creative officer.

At 77, it’s time for me to retire.
Thanks, WWE Universe.
So. Now. Still. Together. #WWE #grateful

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Friedman claimed McMahon left a massive legacy in the industry. He briefly touched on the subject of the allegations made against McMahon and added that the longtime WWE chairman was very talented.

“It’s tough. So he left a massive legacy in the history of the company and there’s a lot of stuff that came out. We don’t know what’s real, we don’t know what’s fake, I think it’s all under investigation. All I can say is I grew up watching the guy, I thought he was extremely talented,” MJF said.

Watch the latest edition of The MMA Hour:

Friedman returned to AEW programming at the All Out pay-per-view and won the Casino Ladder Match, and later near the end of the show he faced CM Punk, who won the World Championship in the main event.

Salt of the Earth has been absent from television since the June 1 edition of Dynamite, where he cut a pipe bomb promo about Tony Khan and called it a “f**king mark.”

MJF also talked about current WWE product

During the same interview with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Maxwell Jacob Friedman was asked about his views on WWE’s current product under Triple H.

The Salt of the Earth claimed that the product had improved since The Game was in charge. However, he believes added that the same account “spits on the legacy” of Vince McMahon.

“I think it’s better and it’s really good and I think our product is also better…” Friedman said. “But I think saying that kind of spits on the legacy of what VKM has created,” MJF added. [From a, live show at the time of writing]

Friedman is currently one of AEW’s top stars and has the potential to become a future AEW World Champion.
