IMPACT, EC3 Call Out MJF For ‘Imitated’ Political Gimmick
This past Wednesday on Dynamite, MJF started the #MJF2020 campaign, with an end goal of being “elected” AEW Champion. In a fiery political-style speech, he stated that “dictator Jon” isn’t the type of change that All Elite Wrestling needs, and that he will lead the company forward for 25 years.
It this all seems familiar, you might have been watching IMPACT five years ago. The promotion shared a clip of EC3 during his #EC3ForChamp campaign, which reads as very similar to Mr. Friedman’s political speech this past Wednesday. EC3 himself then retweeted the clip, stating that “A past worth imitating is a past worth destroying.”

Is MJF truly just imitating what came before, or can you not truly own this type of political showmanship? Also, EC3’s campaign ended in great success for the Troublemaker, so can MJF match that and push “Dictator Jon” off his perch at the top of All Elite? Tune in at the next rally this Wednesday to find out more.
