MJF is known in his pro wrestling world for his callous attitude towards everything. While some have praised him for that, believing it makes him a better heel, others believe that it gives him an excuse to not put in effort.

Ricky Starks spoke with The New York Post, criticizing MJF’s uncaring persona. The #1 contender for the AEW World Championship said it only reinforces MJF to be lazy.

“It’s easier for Max to be lazy. It’s easier for Max in his current position to say, ‘I don’t have to go and visit the kid at the school because he asked me to.’ That’s different from me because I take that responsibility because that person is looking up to me.”

Last week saw Starks win the Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale and become the top contender for the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF, the only person to ever hold the Dynamite Diamond Ring, came out after Starks’ win to berate him. Starks didn’t take this lightly and fired back at the Salt of the Earth. Starks went on to acknowledge being extremely passionate throughout the exchange


“Even if this was a star-making performance in other people’s eyes, to me this was another situation – the third time now if you look at my AEW career – where I’ve gone out there and I’ve passionately spoke. In an industry and in a company where there are so many cornballs and disingenuous people who are all about taglines and trying to push merch, I go out there and speak from the heart and I speak what I feel.”

MJF and Ricky Starks will collide for both the Dynamite Dozen Ring and the AEW World Championship at the Winter is Coming TV special next Wednesday on Dynamite. This will also be MJF’s first title defense since winning the title at Full Gear. Stay tuned to Ringside News for the latest updates in pro wrestling.
