Road Dogg On MJF’s Drink Throwing Incident: ‘It’s Not A Good Look’


AEW World Heavyweight Champion MJF threw a drink at a young fan during his Iron Man match with Bryan Danielson at the Revolution pay-per-view event. MJF didn’t know that the drink had tequila in it. Following the incident, AEW invited the child backstage as a make-good.

WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg talked about the moment on an episode of his “Oh You Didn’t Know?” podcast. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On the incident: “So I — you know, I think there’s a lot of mindsets about this. But from a professional, like a corporate [standpoint] — and look, that’s how I’m looking at the company, and any job I do is a representation of the company that I work for. And therefore to me, that’s not a good thing unless that was a plant, or somebody’s kid and they knew that it was okay to do that. Like, I don’t think it’s good. But I can tell you, I’ll have 100 people and Jim Cornette too telling me I’m stupid, and I don’t know what I’m talking about, and it’s heat and all this. But again, I’m thinking about it from a corporate standpoint. And I can tell you this much, we wouldn’t do that on one of our shows. And if the individual did it, they would probably be punished for it.”

On his own past of using controversy to get heat with fans: “And this is the same guy who said the words that we talked about earlier on the podcast and did all these horrible things. But I don’t look at it the same way now, because I’m 30 years older and I work as an executive in the industry. So I look at it like a company that I’m trying to sell to the public. And that is not a good look, in my opinion.”

On AEW inviting the kid backstage after the incident: “I think the kid getting backstage was all them trying to make up for the talent going into business for himself, you know what I mean? And look, that’s not a negative, and he ain’t the first one to do it I’m just saying, from a business standpoint that’s exactly why they went into crisis-control mode and said ‘Get me everybody’s T-shirt, get me so-and-so down here,’ and go into crisis control mode. We’ve done it 100 times, and we’ll do it 100 more. And so will they.”
