A popular AEW star has called MJF “a real piece of s**t”.
MJF is the current AEW World Champion and the top heel of the company. Since debuting for All Elite Wrestling in 2019, Maxwell Jacob Friedman has always blurred the line between his character and his real life personality.
Another AEW star who usually speaks his mind is Eddie Kingston, who has let his feelings about Friedman known in a new interview.
Speaking on WTF With Marc Maron, Kingston addressed his true feelings on MJF. He said:
“He’s a real piece of s**t. I’m just going to put that out there. I don’t know why he’s the champion.”
“He’ll cry about it to Tony (Khan), then I’ll get an email from Megha (Parekh) and HR, ‘you can’t be calling our world champion a piece of s**t.’ Well, if he doesn’t act like a piece of s**t, I won’t call him that.”
When Maron mentioned that being a piece of s**t is part of MJF’s on-screen persona, Eddie replied:
“Not backstage to the boys. He’s a low life. He’s a young kid who thinks he knows it all and he doesn’t. F**k em. I don’t give a s**t. What are they gonna do, fire me? Okay. I’ll work somewhere and make money.”
Kingston has since responded to the release of the interview in a Twitter post, saying:
Well I guess the podcast deal came out and it is news now that I don’t like our worlds champion. We’ll folks he ain’t the only one I don’t like. It’s simple if you are not a good person in my eyes (important “in my eyes”) then go f**k yourself. (Edit so @AEW can retweet it.
It remains to be seen if these comments will be used in any sort of storyline between the two men.
MJF is currently embroiled in a feud with Bryan Danielson and will face Konosuke Takeshita in an AEW World Championship Eliminator Match on the February 8 edition of AEW Dynamite.
Meanwhile, Eddie Kingston is feuding with the House of Black, which has caused a falling out with his long time friend Ortiz.
