Maxwell Jacob Friedman, MJF, says if he wasn’t a wrestler, there are many things he could be doing, but he is meant to be a professional wrestler and nothing else.
Speaking on an Instagram live Q&A for B/R Live, MJF, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, was asked by a fan what he would be doing if not for the wrestling industry. In his own, very non-humble way, MJF said while he is a multi-talented person, he believes he was put on the earth to wrestle and that is a very obvious fact so he continues to focus on wrestling.
“You know, I’d love to stand back here and go, ‘stand-up, acting, whatever,’ but in all reality, God put me on this green Earth to be a professional wrestler. That’s why I was born. That’s why I was placed here. That’s what I was meant to do. That’s what I’m supposed to do and it’s very obvious,” said MJF. “So, I could look into this camera and say and say, ‘yeah, I would love to do movies. I would love to do TV, music, whatever because I’m so multi-talented there’s literally nothing I can’t do.’ But realistically, I understand why I was placed here, and it was to be the greatest world champion in the history of our great sport that is pro wrestling.”
MJF will have a one-on-one match against Jungle Boy Jack Perry, son of famous actor Luke Perry, at AEW Double Or Nothing on Saturday, May 23, 2020. WrestleZone will have live coverage of the event beginning at 7:30 p.m. with their pre-show.
