Jim Cornette Says Roddy Piper Would Have Loved The MJF Character


Jim Cornette sees a lot of "The Hot Rod" in MJF.

The pro wrestling legend spoke about the similarities he sees in MJF and the late, great Roddy Piper during the latest installment of his official podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience.

Featured below is an excerpt from the episode where he touches on this topic with his thoughts, explaining why he thinks the "Rowdy" one would have loved the Maxwell Jacob Friedman character.

“I think [Piper] would love [MJF] and he would love it. I think he would say here is a guy that can talk his ass off, knows how to push people’s buttons, likes to get heat… If he saw his matches, especially the one with Darby Allin I think he would be very impressed with that.

"So yeah, I’ve got to think that Roddy would be relieved that somebody has come along like that and still obviously takes the business fairly seriously and can go out and not do the same style that Roddy did, but go out in the same vein at riling people up on the microphone like Roddy did 40 years ago. I think he would approve wholeheartedly.”
