AEW’s MJF Compares Himself To Andre The Giant
The Salt of the Earth, as humble as ever it seems
Love him or hate him, no-one can deny that MJF is one of the greatest heels currently plying their trade in pro-wrestling, with ‘The Salt of the Earth’ becoming one of AEW’s most important stars.
Despite this, MJF has only wrestled 14 matches so far in 2021, and as he revealed on Busted Open Radio, there’s a reason why MJF doesn’t wrestle every single week:
"Here's the deal, I only wrestle when it behooves me to wrestle," started MJF. "I find that a lot of guys on the AEW roster are wrestling because they feel they need to impress our fanbase. I don't have to impress anybody, everybody is already impressed by me. You're impressed by me the second my music hits. There's a reason that when my music hits, I get one of the loudest reactions, positive or negative, in all of wrestling. I don't have to wrestle every single week to make people feel that way to get people excited about me. I'm an attraction. I'm Andre The Giant.”
