AEW World Title number one contender MJF has told the story of how a fan once went to pretty extreme lengths to supposedly try to kidnap him.
Speaking with the New York Post, Friedman said that a fan once tried to convince security that he was a pilot who was supposed to fly MJF out on a private jet. Obviously, he was not.
“At AEW, a fan tried to dress up I believe like a pilot and was trying to convince our security that they were supposed to fly me out on a private jet after the show. I can assure you that that guy was most certainly not my pilot, so there was once a fan who literally tried to kidnap me. I’ve seen it all. When I was in Mexico, people threw a car battery at me and urine at me. That’s because I don’t tiptoe around. I don’t hide how I feel.”
Friedman also said that AEW is the promotion in which he will end his career. Speaking about talent in AEW that was formerly in WWE, he explained:
“It’s great that they had their hand held sometimes by VKM [Vince McMahon], awesome. But I didn’t. I didn’t come from that product. I didn’t come from that land. I am AEW born and bred. I will be AEW until I die. This is my company. This is where I started. This is the company that I’ll end in.”
