AEW has a roster of stars hungry to show the world what they can do. They also have quite a few people who are young enough now to be huge names in the future.
Andy Williams, better known as The Butcher joined The MetalSucks podcast recently where he revealed something very interesting. MJF and Jungle Boy’s match on February 12th might have entertained the fans, but apparently the wrestlers involved weren’t too pleased with it.
“Dude, f*cking Jungle Boy, last night, Jungle Boy wrestled MJF, and as a wrestling fan, we’re literally watching — that’s gonna be Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels in ten years. Those dudes are gonna rule the f*cking wrestling world and they don’t even know it yet, and to see them beat themselves up at 22 and 23 years old — like MJF was really beat up over that. After that match, he was just like, ‘Did I f*cking do this right? Was I too slow on this?’ And I’m f*cking killing this kid’s f*cking character right now, but, you have to tell him that.”
“It’s like, ‘Dude, you’re so young and all you’re doing is… think of a wrinkly bed sheet. All you’re doing is smoothing it out. Every time you guys touch, you’re gonna smooth it out, you’re gonna smooth it out, and then by the time you guys have your big moment, whenever that is, all those wrinkles are gonna be smoothed out and then you’re just gonna be second nature man.’”
“That is amazing. If you think about it, because all you’re doing is just, you’re triangulating a scenario and you’re just making it more and more perfect every single time you touch, and nobody has that opportunity. No one does anything perfect the first time.”
The level of dedication in the AEW locker room is quite impressive. We’ve only seen the beginning of what is in store for fans. The All Elite Wrestling locker room wants to be their best and they’re taking that job very seriously.
