MJF has claimed that a Mount Rushmore of Long Island wrestlers would just be him four times, adding that he really wants to punch the Hardcore Legend Mick Foley in the face.
While Long Island might be considered a hotbed of professional wrestling having given the world the likes of Max Caster and Matt Cardona, there is one name that stands just a little higher than the others, Mick Foley. ‘Mrs Foley’s Baby Boy’ travelled the world, paid the price and put his body on the line to become a multi-time World Champion and WWE Hall of Famer.
“I Want To Knock Him Out” – MJF On Mick Foley
However in recent years another star has staked their claim as the ‘King of Long Island.’ AEW star MJF has never been short on confidence, and is potentially just days away from becoming World Champion for the first time. Speaking in a new interview with Newsday, MJF further staked his claim as Long Island’s favourite son. The star said that he is in a Mount Rushmore of one, before commenting that he wants to punch Mick Foley in the face.
“The Mount Rushmore of Long Islanders who are professional wrestlers, I just think is me four times. I think Mick Foley is a hack, and it’s really upsetting that I never got to wrestle him — not because it would be a dream come true for me, but just because I really want to punch him in the face and knock him out with my Dynamite diamond ring, and prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I’m the greatest Long Island wrestler that’s ever lived.”
When it was suggested that Chris Jericho might also be in the running, MJF branded him a “gross little Canadian.”
MJF will be back in action at AEW Full Gear when he meets Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship. Moxley has held the gold since AEW Dynamite Grand Slam when he defeated Bryan Danielson.
