MJF has been considered one of the defining heels of the current generation of pro wrestlers and it is not difficult to understand why. MJF became a huge star in AEW in a short time and has far exceeded expectations.
On last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, William Regal and MJF engaged in a promo battle where fans hung onto each and every word. It revealed how Regal ultimately crushed MJF when he was trying to join WWE.
While speaking on the latest episode of The Gentleman Villain, William Regal dove deeper into MJF’s promo, especially the email where he rejected MJF. He blasted MJF for being entitled and still whining about the email.
After two emails, I told him, ‘You’re 19, go make a name for yourself. I’ve spent a lot of time telling him all these things he needed to work on,’ and being a really good microphone guy is one of them, but he was already good. That’s how he came onto my radar. When he sent me the third email, which was basically the same thing I had already seen. Everyone I’ve ever met, I’ve done stuff for. I’ve already told the lad, ‘send me an email.’ I’ve told him twice. Sending me another one, when I have 200 or more people trying to get a job, and the people I’m already dealing with, he’s just taking up my time now. He even said that.
He sent me two emails, I told him not to send any more, and he sent another one. Why send me another one? He went out, did all the things that whoever has taught him, and the time he’s spent with me, did all that and got himself into position. That’s what I wanted, but he sent me a third one, on a day where I was probably 15 emails in for other people that I wish I could have gotten an opportunity for when I’ve already gotten him an opportunity, it’s just going to take awhile, and he needs to go out and make a name for himself,” said Regal.
He continued, “What I said was real. If all it took was for you to get an extra email, that I told you not to send me, to get you fired up to be this good as what you’re doing, job done. It’s actually sad that you let that be a problem for seven years. He doesn’t remember this, it’s common knowledge now. Not long after we met, I had two bleeds on the brain and WWE kept me completely isolated and stopped emails from coming in, being incredibly brilliant to me because I was having treatment. I was having amnesia and two bleeds on the brain. They stopped all emails coming to me. There were a lot of people, Ricky Starks being one of them. Sammy Guevara being another. That sort of went on the missing list for a long time. You don’t hear them moaning about me. He’s made it into something else.”
MJF is set to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title at AEW Full Gear in November. We will have to wait and see whether MJF will end up winning the title or not.
