MJF has acted in a manner that contradicts his self-proclaimed title of Salt Of The Earth. He sparked controversy at AEW Revolution by throwing a drink at a child in the audience. Initially believed to be water, it was later revealed that the liquid was actually alcohol, further exacerbating the situation. In fact, Eric Bischoff was not a fan of MJF’s actions.

During his championship match against Bryan Danielson at AEW Revolution, MJF began hurling insults at the San Francisco crowd, utilizing his signature brand of 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 young fan. He made light of throwing a drink on that child during the media scrum by remarking that the kid “looked thirsty.”

Following AEW Revolution, Tony Khan had frank conversation with MJF in which he expressed his disappointment in the negative reaction that MJF’s actions elicited from the audience. While MJF’s controversial behavior generated a significant amount of attention, it was not the kind of attention that the promotion sought or desired.


While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff talked about MJF’s questionable antics during the pay-per-view. Bischoff stated that MJF throwing booze on a kid isn’t ‘money heat.’

It’s not my kind of heat. I don’t think it’s ‘money’ heat,” Bischoff said. “I understand why he did it and I just don’t think you can get heat with kids. It just doesn’t work and for me, as much as I love MJF’s character — I think he’s one of the most exciting pieces of talent I’ve seen in decades and I love his work — but at that particular moment,” he continued, “I think there would have been a better way to get better-valued heat, meaning money heat.”

On the other hand, Jim Cornette absolutely loved the spot. 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.
