The last time this happened was between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens in 2016 and 17. Kevin Owens was the Universal Champion and Chris Jericho was his best friend and they were absolutely incredible. Chris Jericho had a list that he used to write the names of people down whom he did not like and Kevin Owens was at his comedic best. And MJF and Adam Cole have started showing some dissention between the 2, they will face each other in the main event of the biggest wrestling show ever AEW All In and they will have a banger of a match and the hope is that they do not turn on each other, just go their separate ways as gentlemen like Trick Williams and Carmelo Hayes went their separate ways but they do not have any beef between them. This will open up the possibility of MJF and Adam Cole coming back together in the future if need be.
