MJF: “I Don’t Care About Being Cool!”, Talks Feud with Cody Rhodes


During a recent interview with the Bleacher Report, MJF commented on feuding with Cody Rhodes, listening to the veterans, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On how Cody Rhodes is like the Wizard of Oz: “He’s almost Wizard of Oz-esque. You have this big bad wizard, but when they pulled back the curtain, there was just this tiny little feeble, weak man who was trying to puppeteer everybody’s lives for the betterment of his own good and only his own good. That’s Cody. There’s a reason why after I kicked that no good son of a b—h Cody Rhodes in the nuts that there was a huge smile on my face. It’s because what happened was a thousand million pounds of weight got completely lifted off my shoulders. Because I had to follow this guy around and be his glorified hype man for way too long. And I allowed that to happen because I thought that man cared about me, which he did not. When I broke the chains of slavery and kicked him square in the balls and it felt so good, Jon. Oh my God. It felt so good.”

On listening to the veterans: “For some strange reason a lot of people in my age demographic don’t want to listen to veterans of this sport. They’d much rather put on their kick pads and do their moonies and their 450s. They’re not trying to learn. They’re not trying to get better. They’re just trying to be cool. I don’t care about being cool, Jon. What I care about is making money. What I care about is making waves. What I care about is going down as one of, if not, the greatest professional wrestlers to have ever lived. And the only way that happens is by studying your sport and your craft. I have sat down for hours until my eyes have bled while I studied legends and I still do to this day while these kids are studying gymnastics routines. That’s why I’m ahead of the curve.”
