MJF has been touted as one of the defining heels of the current generation of pro wrestlers and there is a good reason for that. MJF became a huge star in AEW in a short time and has always more than delivered in all of his programs on AEW television. MJF is also set to be part of a film next year.
The Salt of the Earth buys his own hype in a huge way and for the most part, he backs up everything he says inside the squared circle. Due to his excellent promo and character work, many fans feel MJF could see himself in movies in the future.
Even MJF himself recently claimed that he will be a Hollywood movie star in 10 years. While speaking with Ariel Helwani, MJF confirmed that he will be following in The Rock and John Cena’s footsteps. This is because he has already voice acted on an animated film that is set to release next year.
I have already done a voiceover for an animated movie that I cannot discuss, but that’ll be coming out in 2023. I’m excited. Quite frankly when people think about professional wrestlers and acting, you get nervous because most professional wrestlers cannot act. I mean, you put a red light in front of their face and the best thing they can say is ‘Oh, I’m gonna kick your a**’. But that’s not my [thing]. I’m a bright guy. Just like John Cena is a bright guy, just like The Rock is a bright guy, just like Batista is a bright guy.”
MJF is currently feuding with Wardlow after Wardlow betrayed him at AEW Revolution earlier this month. We’ll have to see how the feud between the two will progress in the coming weeks.
