AEW Star MJF Reveals Which WWE Hall Of Famer Inspired Him To Get Into The Business

All Elite Wrestling Star MJF (Maxwell Jacob Friedman) recently spoke with Inside The Ropes and talked about which WWE Hall of Famer inspired him to get into the pro wrestling business.

MJF said:

“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.”

MJF then talked about who are his favorite heels in professional wrestling.

MJF said:

“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.”

At this Sunday's All Out PPV, MJF is set to face Chris Jericho in their final match and if Jericho is unsuccessful, then he can never wrestle for AEW again.
