MJF is not only proud of his career as a pro wrestler, but he’s incredibly proud of his Jewish heritage.
The AEW World Champion discussed this topic during his recent appearance on WTF With Marc Maron, where the Salt of the Earth calls himself the most prolific Jewish world champion in the history of the business. The champ later credits Bill Goldberg as one of the best Jewish wrestlers in history, but says that the former undefeated superstar couldn’t cut a promo to save his life.
If you’re a Jew, you love MJF. Because, if you think about it, I’m really the first prolific world champion that just so happens to be Jewish in the history of the business that is good at talking and wrestling. [I] love Bill Goldberg to death, but [if] you put a mic in front of his mouth, he kind of has a bit of a panic attack.
MJF defeated Konosuke Takeshita on last night’s AEW Dynamite, which was only his second match since he won the AEW World Title from Jon Moxley back at Full Gear. It was confirmed last night that MJF would be defending the gold against Bryan Danielson at AEW Revolution.
