In recent years John Cena has started to no longer be part of the wrestling world, concentrating on that of cinema. The fact that the Cenation Leader enters the cinema is not something new for the figures of the business, even the likes of Hulk Hogan, Dwayne Johnson and Batista have made the same move with high success.
While in more recent times, Sasha Banks has also seen her stardom grow with more traditional television roles. Cody Rhodes left AEW for a triumphant WWE return at WrestleMania earlier this year, but that doesn't mean MJF will follow the same path.
Eric Bischoff speaks about MJF
Speaking on his 'Strictly Business' podcast, Eric Bischoff suggested to the new AEW MJF world champion to follow in John Cena's footsteps in the future: "MJF I think he probably has the ability, at some point in his life, to move any level.
other kind of entertainment choose, maybe in the cinema. If you are Tony Khan and suddenly MJF gets a part in a movie, that's not a good thing but if the opportunity to be in a great movie comes, you know it won't come back and it's bad for AEW from his point of view.
Your boyfriend who you had contracted for X dollars a year now makes four times as much, or ten times as much, to make a movie." MJF has now become world champion for the first time after defeating Jon Moxley at AEW Full Gear.
The end of the match was not without controversy when William Regal betrayed JOn Moxley by throwing a pair of brass knuckles at MJF who then hit him and got the winning pin. John Cena hasn't fought since he took part in a dark match after the September 10, 2021 episode of Friday Night SmackDown at Madison Square Garden.
His last televised match was at SummerSlam 2021, where he was defeated by Roman Reigns. The star returned to Monday Night Raw on June 27, 2022 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her WWE debut. While Cena hasn't ruled out a return to the ring, he doesn't say when or where he'll fight again.
"No... The only thing I care about at this point at 26 years of age is where will I make the most amount of money?... I think if AEW is willing to pay me enough to put the company on my back and build it up so that one day we have a hundred thousand people at an event I don't see what the difference is," MJF said.
