MJF: I Could Give A Shit About The Older Guys, I Wish They Would Rot In Hell And Die Already

MJF does not care about the older generation.

MJF is the reigning AEW World Champion and has made it no secret that he intends to cash in when he becomes a free agent in January 2024. MJF has dubbed himself a "generational talent" and has openly discussed his desire to transition to Hollywood, already landing a role in "The Iron Claw."

Some older wrestlers and fans have criticized MJF for putting himself before the business or crossing lines on television.

Speaking to Muscle & Fitness, MJF was asked about critics of his work.

“I could give a s**t about the older guys,” said MJF. “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.”

Speaking about his crossover appeal, MJF said, “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.”

MJF successfully defended his AEW World Title against Ricky Starks at AEW Winter Is Coming. Bryan Danielson is currently chasing him for the title.
