MJF Compares Himself To Muhammad Ali, Says He’s Not Playing A Character


During a recent interview with UPI, AEW Superstar MJF commented on his match with Darby Allin tonight, his constant trash talking, why he’s like Muhammad Ali, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On facing Darby Allin tonight: “Darby can pretend that he’s all calm and brooding, but the fact of the matter is, he’s not in check with his own emotions, and the second that he lets himself go mentally in our matchup, I am going to pounce on that like a wild animal.”

On talking trash: “I’m willing to say whatever I have to in order to defeat my opponents. Muhammad Ali did the same exact thing and nobody was saying he was some horrible human being.”

On being called a throwback: “It’s sad that somebody being real in professional wrestling is a throwback. I don’t perform for [expletive]. You know what I do? I be myself 24/7. I’m not a character. I’m not playing anybody. This isn’t a game to me. This is a sport.”
