In the mind of Maxwell Jacob Friedman, he is the hero rising through the ranks stopping the narcissistic Genghis Khan-esque villain in AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes.
Speaking to News Chief, MJF reveals he's not mad that All Elite Wrestling fans boo him, he's mad that they boo him "for the wrong reasons."
“It upsets me that people boo me, because they’re booing for the wrong reasons,” MJF began. "I want them to boo me for the right reasons. Cody is a sociopathic monster. He’s been on a blood rage since AEW started by trying to make himself the face of AEW. I saved them from a Genghis Khan, and I gave them a face everybody could love.”
MJF is a young star in a roster that has quite a few main event names like Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho. Of course, Maxwell, ever so humbly, feels his name still carries more weight.
“I love Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley... but my name pops up more than them,” MJF boasts. "What I’m capable of doing is grabbing you by your face through the TV set and pulling you in. You’re not going to be able to stop watching me. That’s called having ‘it,’ and I’ve got ‘IT’ in spades.”
MJF most recently agreed to face Cody Rhodes at AEW Revolution, provided Cody maintains adherence to three specific stipulations. Learn more here.
