AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF) has now slammed ‘blood thirsty’ fans in a now-deleted tweet.
MJF took to the platform to share a serious message about the well-being of performers, urging wrestlers to take care of themselves.
In a post he has since deleted, MJF wrote:
“The more wrestling fans become blood thirsty for these dangerous feats in the ring.
“The more the wrestlers will hurt themselves trying to curry fans favor.
“Wrestlers, The fans don’t understand that at any given point we can be paralyzed from the neck down or even die from a maneuver as simple as a body slam.
“By the way fans reading this, bodyslams hurt, every move hurts. They will keep moving the goal post of what they deem is ‘good’.
“So before you do something stupid. Consider this, their tweet about your “banger” gonna pay for your medical bills?
“Do the right thing. Go in that ring with the intention of winning the match and leaving the ring the same way you entered it.”
MJF hasn’t wrestled since defending his AEW World Championship in a 60-minute ironman match against Bryan Danielson at the March 5 Revolution pay-per-view.
He’ll defend the title against either Darby Allin or Sammy Guevara at Double Or Nothing on May 28.
