MJF Praises Former Mets Players, Taya Valkyrie On Her Frankie Monet Ring Name In WWE NXT



During a recent appearance on the Mets’ YouTube channel, AEW World Champion MJF revealed that of all the past members of the New York Mets, Paul Lo Duca and Mike Piazza would have become good wrestlers. He said,

“You know, if I had played baseball, the answer would be yes. But outside of that, if you’re asking me a Met that would have been a good wrestler? Paul Lo Duca was a pretty thick boy. He was a little bulldog. He was pretty thick around the arms, the chest, and the shoulders.”

“So that’s my answer, Paul Lo Duca. Mike Piazza, too, obviously. Another thick, handsome man. Catchers, man. I’d say most catchers [would probably be pretty good wrestlers.]”

On a recent edition of the “AEW Unrestricted” podcast, Taya Valkyrie recalled trying to hold onto the ring name she’d been known as for years before switching to Franky Monet in WWE NXT.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On fighting to keep her ring name in WWE: “I was fighting so hard for Taya Valkyrie. Oh, my god. I went to bat for her over and over again and just kept getting ‘No, no, no.’ Even variations of it. I was going to use my first shoot name and then Valkyrie. I was trying all these different combinations of things because this is who I’ve been for 12 years, almost 13 years. I felt like that’s who the fans know, which made it even harder because I felt like Taya kind of died for a second. She kind of was taken to jail. She was nowhere to be seen. It was crazy.”

On her WWE name being inspired by Claude Monet: “I have been an artist my entire life and it just kind of went along with the artist [Claude] Monet,” Valkyrie said.
