Despite proclaiming himself as the “Salt of the Earth,” MJF’s recent actions have been contradictory to this title. At AEW Revolution, he created a stir by throwing a drink at a child in the audience, causing controversy. Initially believed to be water, it was later revealed that the liquid was alcohol, intensifying the severity of the situation. In fact, Jake Roberts feels that MJF went too far with his actions.
At AEW Revolution, MJF’s championship match against Bryan Danielson was accompanied by his customary brand of trash-talk, which involved hurling insults at the San Francisco crowd.
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.”
After AEW Revolution, Tony Khan had candid conversation with MJF expressing his disappointment in the negative reaction from the audience that was provoked by MJF’s actions. Despite the significant amount of attention generated by MJF’s controversial behavior, it was not the kind of attention that the promotion sought or desired.
While speaking during a recent interview on Café De René With René Duprée, WWE Hall Of Famer Jake Roberts talked about MJF throwing booze on a kid. Roberts condemned the move and s stated that MJF went too far.
Yeah, yeah, by far (MJF is the best talker). Anything when you do something to a fan is too much (Roberts said about the situation with MJF throwing a drink on a kid). Here’s the thing guys, the fans are the ones that make you. Don’t, ‘Hey, you fat f*cking b*tch.’ There’s no need for that. Number one, she probably is a fat b*tch, and the kids beside her know mama’s fat. She don’t need to be reminded. Is she coming back? I doubt it, because the kids are crying, that guy made fun of my momma. I’m not f*cking coming back for that sh*t. There’s absolutely no need to attack the fans, none, zero, zilch… MJF does have a problem with going too far. I think he just gets going and he just lets go. You can’t let go. You gotta keep control of your sh*t.
Even Eric Bischoff was highly critical of the move. 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.
