Everyone has different tastes in wrestling. Look at Twitter for five minutes and you will know this to be true. However, it is not just fans who have specific tastes, but the wrestlers too. In this case, AEW star MJF.
Speaking with Yahoo! Sports ahead of Blood and Guts, MJF said he wants to puke in his mouth watching people wrestle on Dynamite. Needless to say, he is not a fan of the high-flying style many AEW fans utilize. Here is the quote:
“When I first got into the industry, I was already a student of the game. I enjoyed watching the [Nick] Bockwinkels, the [Ric] Flairs, the Tullys [Blanchard] — who I now get to work with every week — do their thing. The smartest thing about them, contrary to what you see now stylistically in professional wrestling, was that they didn’t want to get hit, they didn’t want to mess their bodies up.
When I watch professional wrestling on AEW Dynamite, I cringe, I want to puke in my mouth a little bit, because I see these guys and they are murdering themselves. They are jumping from the top rope to the floor, they are doing the loopy loops, the twisty turns, the flippity do-das, and they are killing themselves. Some of these people who are younger than me, and I’m already wildly young, might not be able to walk anymore when they get to my age.”
MJF is scheduled to take part in the first Blood and Guts match in AEW history this week. He will team with the rest of The Pinnacle to take on his old faction, The Inner Circle.
