MJF calls himself The Salt Of The Earth, but his actions denote the exact opposite. He caused a lot of controversy after throwing a drink at a kid during AEW Revolution. What was initially believed to be water, turned out to be alcohol. That being said, it seems Jim Cornette absolutely loved that part of the show.
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. He made light of throwing a drink on that child during the media scrum by remarking that the kid “looked thirsty.”
Tony Khan had a serious conversation with MJF following AEW Revolution, where he expressed his disappointment in the negative reaction MJF elicited from the audience. Although MJF’s actions generated significant heat, it was not the type of heat that is desirable for the promotion.
While speaking on the Drive Thru podcast, Jim Cornette talked about MJF’s questionable antics during the pay-per-view. Interestingly enough, Cornette made it clear that he loved MJF throwing tequila at the young fan.
“MJF bailing to the floor and throwing the water on the kid. Oh my god, what boos it got? Well, I heard that from from the scrum afterwards, I heard that it became a deal and it was f****** classic. It was f*****vgreat. And he said to the camera is this gonna cost me a star Dave?’ When he was stalling. He got heat by slowing it down like the heel would because Danielson is too good of a technical wrestler. But then they told the stories that Danielson has the bad shoulder, so naturally MJF is going to start working on that. But at the same time MJF was able to do that wild f****** flipping cannon ball thing and land on his feet but supposedly sell his knees. So is his knee bad or not? We don’t know.”
Scorpio Sky even commented on MJF’s actions. MJF was also compared to CM Punk following his antics at AEW Revolution. We do not condone what MJF did and we hope such an incident never happens again.
