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

A few months ago, it was reported that the WWE board began investigating allegations made against McMahon for seemingly 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 as the new Co-CEO of WWE. With Triple H, announced as the new Head of Creative of the company.

At 77, time for me to retire. Thank you, WWE Universe. Then. Now. Forever. Together. #WWE #thankful

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Friedman claimed that McMahon left a gigantic legacy in the industry. He briefly touched on the subject of the allegations made against McMahon and added that the long-term WWE Chairman was highly talented.

"That's a tough one. So he's left a gigantic legacy in the history of the business 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 tremendously talented," said MJF.

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

The Salt of the Earth has been absent from TV since the June 1 edition of Dynamite, where he cut a pipe-bomb promo on Tony Khan and called him a "f**king mark."

MJF also spoke about the current WWE product

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

The Salt of the Earth claimed that the product has improved since The Game has been in charge. However, he believes added that the same narrative "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..." said Friedman. "But I think to say that kind of spits on the legacy of what VKM created," MJF added. [From a, live show at the time of writing]
