AEW star Britt Baker recently spoke with Mostly Sports on a number of topics including how fellow AEW star MJF felt during his rivalry with WWE star “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes back in 2020 that Rhodes was trying to steal his spotlight and his thunder by showing up with a neck tattoo.

Baker said, “So, there was a lot of controversy around [Cody Rhodes getting a neck tattoo] internally at the time.” “Because MJF, at the time, I don’t know if I can say this, I’m just going to say it because f**k MJF: he felt that Cody was trying to steal his thunder at the time because they were in a feud at the pay-per-view.”

“Cody vs. MJF, MJF big coming out moment, and it was like his ‘hurrah’ [moment], and Cody shows up, bam, with a neck tattoo.”

Brandon Walker then said, “Stealing the spotlight a little?,” to which Baker responded, “Yup, that’s what MJF says.” “I’m sure he doesn’t care now because MJF is successful on his own, but at the time [he did].”
