As noted, AEW World Champion MJF caused quite a stir when he decided to grab a drink from a woman sitting ringside and threw it at a young fan sitting next to her during the Iron Man match at AEW Revolution. It was later revealed that the drink turned out to be alcohol and that Tony Khan and MJF “had a serious conversation” about what happened.
On the latest edition of his Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Konnan gave his opinion about what MJF did and noted how the champion could’ve found himself in legal trouble if the family had decided to press charges.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On talent risking charges by such interactions: “They [fans] don’t understand that when you’re [in] the heat of the moment, you do stuff like that… And so, I had a guy in Tijuana that I told him, ‘Do not engage with the f**king fans.’ And he engaged with them, and he got arrested. And he actually wanted me to help him, and I said, ‘No, I’m not going to help you’… After that, he learned his lesson. And the thing is, the wrestler doesn’t understand that something like that could get big.”
On the incident similar to Brian Pillman’s antics: “Yeah, it’s almost like an old-school Brian Pillman Loose Cannon gimmick modernized.”
