MJF Says Roddy Piper Made Him Fall In Love With Wrestling, More


During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, AEW Superstar MJF commented on WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper being the reason he fell in love with wrestling, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Roddy Piper being his inspiration: “Roddy Piper. Before me, I’m going to say the only person who would equal the ability to get a visceral reaction from the crowd was Piper. Piper made me fall in love with wrestling. And if I was able to have an opportunity to have promos back and forth with Roddy, and then a match that I know would be vicious as all hell. I think that would probably go down as the greatest match in the history of professional wrestling.”

On his favorite wrestling heels: “Chris Jericho was up there [as a heel]. As much as I hate to admit it. I would say Chris Jericho is most certainly up there. Roddy Piper. I would throw in Tully Blanchard, I would throw in Eddie Gilbert, I would throw in Ric Flair and I would also throw in Chris Candido.”
