MJF Officially In Cody's Corner At Full Gear

Saw on the IG page that they are now advertising Cody w/MJF vs Jericho in the main event.

Obviously this raises the notion of MJF turning on Cody again, I still think it's too soon and too obvious here but it seems likely on such a big stage.

I say keep MJF on Cody's side for YEARS. Just keep the friendship going for as long as you can before doing the turn.

As for putting MJF in his corner and stuff like that, I say go the route of that jump scare scene from Exorcist III.

Have it the scene dangle forever and ever to the point that people basically give up the idea that anything is going to happen and then BOOM, do it when people let their guard down.

I love this Cody/MJF dynamic, it's something you would never see in WWE.

I feel like it's a little early to pull the trigger on the inevitable feud between them.

If I'm booking it, Jericho wins clean, this sparks the "maybe this guy isn't as great as I thought" dilemma in MJF's mind, leading to the turn down the road.

Re: MJF Officially In Cody's Corner At Full Gear

I feel WWE has a tendency to skip capitalizing on great story lines. The biggest example is never turning Cena heel; then you can likely think of plenty of others. WWE sometimes misses an opportune time, but will later try to do the story after all the buzz has died and the story can fall flat. WWE doesn't tend to walk this line well. Recent HIAC is a good example; having Bray go for the title so soon appeared like "striking the iron while it's hot", but ultimately was too soon and they failed to book it.

With all that trash talk, I'm curious to see how AEW can walk the line of giving too much or not giving enough in terms of capitalizing on a hot commodity. Everyone is expecting MJF to turn at some point, but when? They're playing with our expectations and could drag this out for over a year. They could also cave and go for the obvious & expected heel turn. On paper, there is potential for whatever they do, but in reality if he turns heel right now it could damage him. MJF is in a very interesting spot because people want him one way without sacrificing the other.

Turn him heel right away and not surprise us, but give us an excellent heel? Keep him face and prolong this dynamic, always making us waiting and excited for the heel turn?

Have MJF turn on Cody already and make him a main eventer. Geeks like Pac, Page, and Omega aren't cutting it at the top of the card. The company desperately needs MJF to join Moxley and Jericho at the top.

I feel like this is something that should have been communicated to us on last night's Dynamite

Yeah they hinted at it during the video package but never outright said anything about it.

Even if he doesnt turn, I feel he will cost Cody the match somehow furthering the divide.

It'll be interesting if they keep going with the 'douchebag with a heart of gold' idea. He gets insane babyface reactions for it.

Re: MJF Officially In Cody's Corner At Full Gear

I don't think they've established him enough yet to turn him heel. I'll put it this way, if you're watching the shows you know who MJF is at this point. You know he's kind of a cocky heel character, but has shown some good and had Cody's back a few times as his friend. But as a casual fan at this point I'm not invested enough in MJF's character to care about a feud with Cody. They should actually build something good up, give him a reason to resent Cody.

Re: MJF Officially In Cody's Corner At Full Gear

I just hope they don't do the turn now. They could keep together for another year before they pull that trigger.

As it is, we haven't gotten that much between them on TV at least and honestly, the one potential thorn in this story is that if MJF turns on Cody, especially now, Cody looks like a dumbass. Because everyone can see this coming. If he can't, it'll just make him look kind of dumb.
