MJF Blasts NJPW, Claims “It’s The Drizzling Sh*ts”

MJF stands on-stage on AEW Dynamite 2022

MJF is not considering a move to New Japan Pro-Wrestling in the near future.

Following a successful defence of the World Championship at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view, the generational talent appeared in front of the wrestling media for the post-show press conference, addressing the questions in his trademark manner.

With All Elite Wrestling’s next pay-per-view being the Forbidden Door crossover show with NJPW on June 25th, the World Champion will likely have to defend the title against one of the top stars of the Japanese promotion.

MJF Demeans NJPW Promotion And Wrestlers

When asked about a match at Forbidden Door, MJF was against the idea, stating that nobody on the roster is worthy of being in the ring with him:

“Do I have to wrestle at Forbidden Door? F**k that. Oh God, it’s a f**king indie fed, dude. I don’t know, man. Jesus Christ. Look, with all due respect, their greatest legend probably couldn’t lace my boots. I think I would make anybody on that roster look silly, and I don’t want to waste my time. I’m a very busy man,”

The World Champion continued to berate the promotion, stating that only one wrestler on the roster gets a reaction out of him:

“I think New Japan Pro Wrestling sucks. Except that Great-O-Khan guy, he f**king pops me. I like him. But everyone else there is the drizzling s**ts. I don’t know. It reminds me of just like a local indie fed.”

At the 2022 Forbidden Door event, All Elite Wrestling’s Jon Moxley faced off against New Japan’s Hiroshi Tanahasi to crown an Interim AEW World Champion, due to lineal champion CM Punk out with an injury at the time.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman was not a part of the 2022 event. Three weeks prior to the crossover show, MJF cut the infamous pipebomb promo on Tony Khan, and was absent from the promotion until the All Out pay-per-view in September that year.
