Former NXT Name MJ Jenkins Would Love To Go To AEW, Discusses Friendship With Sonny Kiss
MJ Jenkins has her sights set on becoming “elite.”
On Wednesday, April 15th, 2020, WWE laid off several professional wrestlers in a cost-cutting measure. NXT Superstar, MJ Jenkins, was one of those names. However, she is already looking toward the future.
Speaking with Sportskeeda, Jenkins discussed her desire to go to the other promotion that runs on television every Wednesday night and commented on her friendship with AEW Superstar, Sonny Kiss.
“Oh, man… You know, there is so much wrestling out there and… [MJ laughs] ..I can say, from what I’ve seen, the main place I would love to go is AEW. I can’t lie,” she said. “Sonny Kiss has been one of my friends for the longest. I met him so long ago in New Jersey when I was wrestling and he was wrestling, at a smaller indie company. Britt Baker is there, me and Britt had our first-ever tryout match in front of the whole WWE locker room at SmackDown. And we killed it! You just have so [many] great performers there. Ariel Monroe, Big Swole is what she goes by now… But I would love to go there because I believe in what they’re doing and I believe in their women’s division.”
WrestleZone will have full coverage of both NXT and AEW beginning Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern.
