• AEW Wrestler Recalls A Fan Trying To Kidnap Him & Another One Throwing Urine At Him
While speaking to the New York Post, AEW wrestler MJF recalled the time a fan tried to kidnap him after an AEW show.
Below is what he said:
“At AEW, a fan tried to dress up I believe like a pilot and was trying to convince our security that they were supposed to fly me out on a private jet after the show. I can assure you that that guy was most certainly not my pilot, so there was once a fan who literally tried to kidnap me. I’ve seen it all.”
He continued and revealed the incident where a fan threw a car battery and urine at him.
“When I was in Mexico, people threw a car battery at me and urine at me. That’s because I don’t tiptoe around. I don’t hide how I feel.”
MJF is set to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship this Saturday night at All Out 2020.
