MJF weighs in on video games.
AEW has put a large investment in video games and the AEW console game is set to be released at some point in the future. Being a fan of wrestling probably means playing a wrestling video game at some point growing up.
For MJF, those were the only video games he played.
"Video games are for virgins, but wrestling video games are for winners," MJF said on Game Marks podcast. "I think anybody can agree on that. Regular video games like Zelda or Cuck Central Part Two or whatever people are playing nowadays, I don't know, I'm not a simp. For me, the first wrestling game I ever played, which is the only acceptable type of video game to play, was called Day of Reckoning on GameCube. The storyline resonated with me at a young age and I remember very much enjoying the story in that game. At some point in Day of Reckoning 2, you do a cage match with Rey Mysterio. Once I got to the cage match, I could not figure out how to get out of the cage because I'm not a virgin nerd. I threw the controller down and said, 'clearly video games aren't for me.' To my knowledge, I did not play another wrestling game for a couple of years."
MJF went on to say that he did end up playing SmackDown vs. Raw vs. ECW after quitting wrestling games following his failure to figure out how to climb the cage in Day of Reckoning 2.
