AEW World Champion MJF is not known to be subtle with his opinions. Maxwell Jacob Friedman has made a name for himself by running down opponents on the microphone, throwing out insults left, right and centre.
Now it appears he is at it again, with a special message for any wrestling veteran who plans to criticise him.
MJF Hopes Wrestling Veterans “All Rot In Hell”
In an interview with Muscle & Fitness, MJF was asked if he respects the veterans who have criticised his pandering to WWE officials on AEW programming. In true MJF fashion, the reply was not short and sweet, but long and brutal.
“I could give a s**t about the older guys. I wish they would all rot in hell and die already. It’s our time. Screw them, and screw the fans that like them still. I’ve had a phrase and a saying since I entered this business: talent over tenure. I believe in it whole heartedly, and if these old dogs don’t want to believe I’ll put them out of their misery myself. Just come for the champ, and I’ll do it.”
When asked about his appearance at a recent UFC event and his role in the movie “Iron Claw,” MJF spoke of his mass appeal.
“We finally have a superstar again, that we can showboat. I think that I am easily the type of athlete who should be interviewed by Muscle & Fitness, as I am, and I am also being interviewed by Forbes, and ESPN, and all these news and media outlets. I got all the stroke, and I am the one that everybody is talking about in professional wrestling.”
During the interview with Muscle & Fitness, MJF also touched on the team of individuals who ensure that he is at his absolute best.
“If you are born gifted, and you work hard, the possibilities are limitless. I have a personal chef; her name is Julie Posner. She makes me five meals a day, every day. I have a nutritionist, his name is Bryce Ready, and I have a personal trainer and coach; branded as Stoked Athletics. Essentially what I am doing, literally week after week is, I’m moving up in the weights that I lift. I’m training up very slowly.”
