MJF Originally Thought He’d Be A ‘Kane Like Figure’
The young MJF was a fan of the brooding masked type
MJF is many things, and self assured is top of the list. But years before he was the Burberry wearing rich kid running roughshod over AEW, MJF thought he’d end up going down different path.
"I always thought that I was going to be this dark, brooding, black face paint around the eyes, Kane-like, Legion of Doom-esque character and the character name was Mad Max and I remember, I always gave my guy a red mohawk with long tights, black boots, and a skull with a big leather jacket. Then, I grew out of being a complete f****** loser and I realised I should just be myself and start making Maxwell Jacob Friedman, a fun-loving guy that everyone likes. Beloved by all and has a little bit of money. Not a lot, but a comfortable amount of money," said MJF on the Game Marks podcast.
Clearly MJF is the humble salt of the Earth, and it’s hard to imagine him in the ‘stoic take no prisoners killing machine’ role. There’s always time.
