MJF recalls his earliest memory of wrestling.
As somebody who has experience in throwing people off the top of cages, MJF revealed his earliest memory of professional wrestling to Ariel Helwani in a recent interview.
“The way I got introduced to pro wrestling, and I was about four [years old] at the time, I was over at my uncle’s house. It was a family get together at his beautiful, luxurious home. On the TV, it was Friday night, so there was SmackDown. I didn’t know it was SmackDown at the time. I’m getting a glimpse of what this stuff is and I’m just in absolute awe. I don’t remember exactly what I was watching but I was just in awe of these monstrous titans. I remember looking at my father as we went home and I was like ‘I just need to see more of this.’ So he took me to a Hollywood Video when I was very young and I grabbed just a bunch of DVD’s and there was one guy in particular who looked like a zombie and his hand was reaching out in the front. At the time, I didn’t know it was The Undertaker. So I bring that home and I put in the DVD and I read the back and on the back it says Hell In A Cell match. So the first match I ever watched, I think I was four turning five, was Mankind vs. The Undertaker in a Hell In A Cell match and I was absolutely floored.”
