MJF is undoubtedly one of the best heels in the pro wrestling world right now and his character has only continued to develop during his time in AEW. He quickly cemented himself as a top star and has been a mainstay of AEW television since the debut of AEW Dynamite back in 2019.
He is dedicated to his character as he never breaks kayfabe, inside or outside the squared circle, and his promo skills only continue to improve with each day. He also loves to get under the skin of people and this carries forward to even the world of video games.
While the AEW video game is still in the early stages of development, the audio capture is already done and recently alpha footage of the game was show, which featured Darby Allin performing some wrestling moves.
While speaking on the Game Marks podcast, MJF talked about the upcoming AEW video game, revealing that he won’t be doing any motion capture for the game as MJF isn’t in dire need of the money.
“The reason people do that is that they need money. I’m not exactly the type of guy who is hard on that. I’ve done the head scan thing for the console game and they’ve had me pose in my different pay-per-view trunks and robes. I found that interesting, but I’m never going to be a (motion capture) guy because I don’t need the money.”
The AEW video game promises to change up a lot of things when it comes to how a pro wrestling game can be played. We will have to wait and see whether it will live up to fan expectations or not.
