All Elite Wrestling star Maxwell Jacob Friedman delivered a show-stealing promo amid his reported displeasure with the company during the latest episode of Dynamite on Wednesday (June 1).
The Plainview, Long Island native addressed AEW founder, co-owner, president and CEO Tony Khan, who he referred to as “Boss,” and how he was “taken for granted” by AEW management, despite being the company’s top rising star, accusing Khan of hoarding money and instead “giving it to all the new ex-WWE guys he keeps bringing in.”
Friedman, who referred to himself as “a generational talent” said “I don’t want to be here anymore” in reference to his status with AEW and yelled “fire me, you f****** mark” directly into the camera as his microphone was cut off during the TBS live broadcast.

The emotional promo came days after Friedman missed a scheduled appearance at AEW Fan Fest last Saturday (May 28) afternoon and was reported to have booked a flight out of Las Vegas, according to Wrestling Inc reported, though Friedman didn’t get on the flight and made his scheduled appearance at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view event in a losing effort to his former on-screen bodyguard Wardlow.
MJF’s promo — which hasn’t been shared by AEW’s social media accounts — is one of the best segments in the company’s three-year history.
