MJF calls himself The Salt Of The Earth, but his actions denote the exact opposite. He caused a lot of controversy after throwing water at a kid during AEW Revolution. Now it seems Tony Khan had a serious conversation with him after he got a little overzealous at Revolution and threw water on a young fan.

During his title match against Bryan Danielson at AEW Revolution, MJF made his way into the audience and began berating the San Francisco crowd with his trademark trash-talk.
To further his disruptive antics, he even took a drink from a woman in the audience and callously threw it in the face of a young fan. It was a display of arrogance and contempt that left many in the audience stunned and outraged.
Naturally, many people thought this crossed the line. In fact, reports suggested that the young fan was quite upset and that several people from AEW approached the young fan to cheer him up.
While speaking during the post AEW Revolution press conference, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about the whole ordeal. Tony Khan revealed that he had a serious conversation with MJF about the young fan named Titus. Khan added that Titus took the whole incident like a champ and that he will be coming back to AEW.
Before we came up here we had a serious conversation and I mean that it’s not to be taken lightly. The young man Titus was a real pro about it. We’ll see Titus again in AEW, I believe Titus is actually coming to Sacramento. I was just with him, he was a real champ about it. The champion didn’t act like a champion there, I think Titus was great.
Bryan Danielson was unable to defeat MJF, after both went into Sudden Death after the 60 minute time limit expired in their Iron Man match. Thus, MJF retained his AEW World Championship for another day. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for MJF, as AEW certainly has a lot of plans for him.
