• MJF Breaks Character On AEW Dynamite, Gets Emotional (Video)
On tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF dropped his heel character and cut an emotional promo talking about his childhood days.
Below is what the 25-year-old wrestler said:
“I know it’s easy to think that I was raised with a silver spoon in my mouth. But the fact of the matter is, at one point in my life, the only reason I got out of bed in the morning was because of professional wrestling. Just like all of you, I love professional wrestling. I love AEW.
That day meant more to me than just another Friday. Let me go back a little bit in time. In 2007, I’m a 11-year-old boy with a litany of learning disabilities. I have severe ADD, every single day in school for me was hell.
The one thing I was good at was football, I tried out for the team, and was one of only two Jewish kids to try out. Shockingly, the coach started me as a linebacker, and that meant everything to me.
For once, I thought I fit in. And the very next day in school, I see my teammates walking up to me, and I’m excited because for once in my life, I thought I’m going to make friends.
Instead, they look angry, and in their hands are rolls of quarters. And all of them decided to throw the quarters at me as hard as they physically could. They said, ‘pick it up, Jew boy. Pick it up.’ I went home, and I cried and cried.
I finally stopped because I realized, ‘today’s Friday, and tonight I get to meet my hero CM Punk at an autograph signing.’ CM Punk, the guy I looked up to. That day meant everything to me.
When I went back home, I made a promise to myself. I wasn’t going to be afraid to speak for myself. I, this 5 foot nothing, ADD-riddled jew boy, was going to become the best in the world.”

“That was the hardest moment of my life.
That was the hardest moment of my life.
