MJF's personality isn't for everyone and he's pissed off his fair share of fans throughout the years.
It's better to piss off fans than be pissed on by fans.
Speaking to the New York Post, the number one contender for AEW World Title, recalled a couple of fan horror stories he's experienced during his time in wrestling.
“At AEW, a fan tried to dress up I believe like a pilot and was trying to convince our security that they were supposed to fly me out on a private jet after the show,” MJF said. “I can assure you that that guy was most certainly not my pilot, so there was once a fan who literally tried to kidnap me. I’ve seen it all. When I was in Mexico, people threw a car battery at me and urine at me. That’s because I don’t tiptoe around. I don’t hide how I feel.”
MJF isn't afraid to insult anyone and everyone
Arn Anderson, who has been around wrestling for nearly four decades, has seen it all and has his own fan horror stories. Even he is surprised fans don't kill MJF on the spot.
“I just happened to be walking by a monitor when he started [a stage show at a Starrcast fanfest] and my God, I couldn’t believe the kid was getting away with the stuff that he was saying, that a herd of people didn’t bum rush the podium and cuff him and take him to jail,” Anderson said. “It was unbelievable how he was toeing the line.”
Taz went on to call MJF "a pain in the ass, but [AEW's] pain in the ass."
MJF is set to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title on Saturday at All Out and the feud has been based around "Dictator Jon" not delivering on his promise of a paradigm shift.
“It’s great that they had their hand held sometimes by VKM, awesome,” MJF said, referring to WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. “But I didn’t. I didn’t come from that product. I didn’t come from that land. I am AEW born and bred. I will be AEW until I die. This is my company. This is where I started. This is the company that I’ll end in. My ultimate goal is when I pass away for people to go, ‘That guy was the greatest professional wrestler in the history of our sport. That’s my only goal.”
Before MJF steps into the ring with Moxley, his lawyer "Smart" Mark, must face the AEW Champion on Wednesday's Dynamite.
