Former WWE star Chavo Guerrero has compared AEW World Champion MJF to the Rock, John Cena and Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Guerrero was released by WWE on June 25, 2011, ending his 10-year tenure with the company.
He has since performed as both an actor and as a wrestling co-ordinator on television shows such as GLOW and Young Rock.
Speaking to Wrestling Inc, Guerrero drew on his extensive career in both wrestling and Hollywood in order to speculate on the future of the AEW Champion:
“I see him more as a Roddy Piper potential. You know how Roddy could just… He was really quick witted. He could really ruffle feathers.
“And I just saw an old interview of… Because “Territories” are, the Portland episode just aired. So people are posting a lot of old stuff of Roddy because he was all over that Portland episode.
“I saw an interview he did, and it was in a Portland news show. Man, he was very straight to the point, antagonistic, keeping kayfabe, but also just was really, he just pushed the envelope better than anybody ever does.
“Anytime you see Cena or Rock, or Batista for the most part in interviews, they’re very PC in a sense. MJF is not. He’s more like a Roddy Piper. He ruffles feathers and gets people going. It’s cool to see. I love it.
“Roddy was Roddy. He was a different cut from a different mould for sure. And there’s only one Roddy Piper.
“But if I was going to compare MJF to somebody, I would compare him to that as opposed to a John Cena or a Rock or Punk or somebody. He’s cut from his own little mould there.”
MJF will make his first television appearance since winning the AEW World Championship on this evening’s (November 30) edition of AEW Dynamite.
