MJF Defends Zachary Wentz, Says He Isn’t Antisemitic



AEW World Champion MJF took to social media today to defend Zachary Wentz, the wrestler formerly known as Nash Carter.

Carter was released from WWE NXT last April following allegations of abuse by his wife Kimber Lee. Lee also shared a photo of Wentz in a Hitler-style mustache and mimicking a Nazi salute. The photo was the reason given for Wentz’ release at the time.

MJF, who is outspoken about calling out antisemitism online, posted to Twitter on Monday and defended Wentz. The Salt of the Earth wrote:

Part 1. Everyone’s afraid of talking honestly so I will. @ZacharyWentz isn’t a antisemite. I lived with him. The fact he’s not on TV right now because a girl (who got caught lying about abuse) couldn’t handle a break up and posted a photo of him doing something in jest is wild.

Part 2. When a wrestler who shall remain nameless keyed my car and called me a k**e, Zachary went out of his way when everyone else turned a blind eye to check in on me. The court of twitter can sometimes get dirtbags out of our industry. But the court isn’t always right.”

MJF’s message resonated with Carter’s former tag team partner Wes Lee. Lee and Carter were together in Impact Wrestling and in NXT, winning the tag team titles in WWE’s black-and-gold brand. Lee responded to MJF’s post by tweeting a Burberry scarf pattern and writing, “Respect.”
