MJF is known to cause a rise out of pro wrestling fans with his various attempts to gain heat. It seems that he is also not above telling a little lie in order to accomplish something he wants.
Fightful recently spoke to Rickey Shane Page, and he had something interesting to say about MJF. In a recap that was posted behind the outlet’s paywall, Page revealed that MJF lied to AEW to get RSP on the show.
We spoke about his AEW experiences, specifically the match against Paul Wight. He said MJF actually lied to AEW to get him on the show. It was for the first Arthur Ashe show, so it was a big one, and AEW needed extras. MJF, without consulting RSP first, told AEW he was in the area because he knew that RSP would make the trip up. He drove straight through the night, and was told by Aubrey Edwards he’d be working with Paul Wight on the show.
It was also noted that Ricky Page “spoke highly of his AEW experience, and said that Tony Khan was nice to him. Sometimes he would stand in the Gorilla position to watch Tony Khan direct the show, because he’s interested in that and said that Khan was very cool about him doing that.”
MJF is known to be a smart operator, and he knows how to get things done. It turns out that he is also not above stretching the truth a little bit, if it helps him out.
We’ll have to see what MJF gets into next. Odds are, his mouth has plenty of clever lines left, stored away in care he’s ever in a jam. If anything, that clever wit and tactic might see him emerge as a top WWE Superstar if he decides to make the leap to Vince McMahon’s company in 2024.
