Maxwell Jacob Friedman wants you to use your voice ahead of his championship match against Jon Moxley at AEW All Out on September 5.
MJF started a grassroots campaign to be awarded the championship match on September 5 and now, he is using another great political tool, a petition to get Jon Moxley’s Paradigm Shift DDT banned from his offense. Maxwell Jacob Friedman felt the impact of the Paradigm Shift DDT on the August 12 episode of Dynamite and did not take too kindly to this.
“Jonathan Moxley's actions left my client nearly unable to walk. The result could have been even more catastrophic, potentially ending my client's livelihood or--even worse--his life,” says the petition written by Maxwell's legal counsel. “Let me be clear: the events that transpired last night were preventable. If immediate action isn't taken, Jonathan Moxley's behavior could have a lasting impact on my client, your favorite professional wrestler or even your loved ones.”
The petition further states, “My client is calling for a ban of Jonathan Moxley's move The Paradigm Shift. The sole purpose of this high-risk move (double underhook DDT) is to drive an opponent's head into the mat. Professional wrestlers on the receiving end of this move are subject to unacceptable levels of risk as it relates to spinal, neck and/or brain injuries.
“My client has stated on the record his plan to be the top guy in professional wrestling for the next 25 years. This can only be achieved, however, if my client is able to participate in wrestling matches in a professional environment with an acceptable level of risk.”
