All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star MJF has made a massive statement in a recent interview. MJF is famous for his trash-talking skills. The AEW star is currently involved in a heated rivalry with former WWE Champions CM Punk on Tony Khan’s pro wrestling promotion. During one of the promos, Punk compared him to The Miz, who is WWE’s most famous trash-talker.
MJF spoke with Peter Schwartz on Sports recently. During that chat, he narrated a story from his childhood when he was five years old. The AEW star recalled that the first match he saw in full was the iconic Hell in a Cell match, where The Undertaker went one-on-one with Mankind.
During the match, there was a dangerous spot where The Deadman threw Mankind from above the Hell in a Cell structure. MJF said that he would not have allowed The Undertaker to throw himself like that. He further added that when he was five, he thought that he could get the better of the Deadman easily. Here’s what The Salt of Earth had to say:
“There is no way I would have let the schmuck throw me off the top of the cage. Immediately, at five years old, I’m going, ‘I could beat this guy’ and that’s when I knew. Quite frankly, I’m probably right.”Advertisement
