AEW World Champion MJF is not just content with dominating the world of professional wrestling; he’s set his sights on Hollywood stardom as well.
Having already made significant strides in acting, including a role as Lance Von Erich in “The Iron Claw,” where he also held an executive producer credit, MJF is eager to establish himself as a versatile entertainer.
In a recent conversation with Liam Crowley for Comicbook.com, MJF expressed his ambition to have a regular presence in the entertainment industry outside of wrestling within the next five years.
While he maintains his deep love for wrestling and intends to remain full-time in the industry, he’s equally committed to pursuing acting as a full-time career. His aspiration is to follow in the footsteps of legends like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, and Batista, who successfully transitioned from wrestling to acting and achieved great success in both realms.
“I genuinely think in five years from now, I’m going to be a guy that people see regularly on their TV screen outside of the professional wrestling landscape. Trust me, I love wrestling too much to not still be involved in it. I will most likely still be full-time, but I want to be acting full-time as well by then. I would also like to put out an album by then. I would like to be a well distinguished actor that is recognized as being a great actor that transitioned from wrestling like these greats that did it before me. Like Dwayne, like Batista. Like Cena.”
MJF’s multi-faceted talent is not limited to wrestling and acting alone. He also mentioned his desire to release an album in the coming years, showcasing his creative versatility.
MJF envisions a future where he becomes a renowned actor while continuing to make a significant impact in the world of professional wrestling, much like the iconic figures who came before him. With his determination and talent, he’s well on his way to making a memorable mark in both arenas.
