MJF Says Characters Make Money In Pro Wrestling Not Flips

AEW star MJF was recently the guest on Talk is Jericho. During the interview MJF talked about how characters make money in wrestling no fancy and flashy moves.

“There is a lot of guys on our roster that can do their ‘flippy dos,’ and their cool little moves and that’s cute. That doesn’t create cash. What creates cash is controversy, what creates cash is characters. When I say characters, I’m not saying I’m portraying anyone, because I’m being myself 110 percent of the time. When I say characters, I say someone that creates intrigue, someone that takes you to the edge of your seat, that you have to listen to.”

“When I was on the independents, I got to work the top tier indies. But a lot of the fans would be upset saying, ‘He doesn’t know how to do a 450-shooting star press, he doesn’t know how to wrestle.’ Listen dipsh-t, I can do that all day long. But at the end of the day, I’m coming to get the winners purse. Now, I do not care if you like what I do in the ring. Bell to bell, what I’m worried about is getting the ‘W’.”
