Ex-WWE Star Claims MJF “Has A Problem With Going Too Far”
MJF loves being the bad guy, but one wrestling legend believes that sometimes he has a problem going a bit too far with his actions.
It was at AEW Revolution last weekend when Maxwell Jacob Friedman had what many people believe was the best match of his career so far. MJF defended the AEW World Championship against Bryan Danielson in a 60-Minute Ironman Match that MJF won 4-3. It actually went into overtime, so it was a 65-minute match.
During the match, MJF went into the crowd, grabbed a drink from a woman and threw it on her son that was sitting in the crowd. While some people thought the woman and child were plants that were part of the show, they were not. It drew a lot of criticism from fans watching the show.
After Revolution at the post-show press conference, AEW Owner Tony Khan said he had a conversation with Max about it because that’s not something you should be doing to fans that are paying money to be at the show.
While appearing on the Cafe de Rene with Rene Dupree show, WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts said that MJF has a problem with going too far sometimes. Jake works for AEW as a manager for Lance Archer.
“Yeah, yeah, by far (MJF is the best talker).
“Anything when you do something to a fan is too much (Roberts said about the situation with MJF throwing a drink on a kid). Here’s the thing guys, the fans are the ones that make you. Don’t, ‘Hey, you fat f*cking b*tch.’ There’s no need for that. Number one, she probably is a fat b*tch, and the kids beside her know mama’s fat. She don’t need to be reminded. Is she coming back? I doubt it, because the kids are crying, that guy made fun of my momma. I’m not f*cking coming back for that sh*t.”
“There’s absolutely no need to attack the fans, none, zero, zilch… MJF does have a problem with going too far. I think he just gets going and he just lets go. You can’t let go. You gotta keep control of your sh*t.”
Another wrestling legend, Ric Flair, was also critical of MJF’s drink-throwing move.
