MJF is not a fan of flippy dudes

https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/20...throne-655363/

He was then asked if he considers himself to be a bit of a throwback wrestler.

"When I watch pro wrestling, I don't care for the flippy dudes and the let-me-run-myself-to-death guys or those that want to 'outathlete' you. I don't care about that. I come into the ring with one sole purpose. That is to win so I get the winner's purse and make more money than you," said MJF.

MJF says he grew up idolizing guys like Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard and others who epitomized what it meant to be a "wrestler."

"I gravitate towards that style of wrestling. When I come through the curtain, people aren't watching me because they wanna see moves. They're watching me because they wanna see me," said MJF.

"Sure everyone has 27 variations of a piledriver but not everyone has it and I was born with it. That's why it is the reason why I am going to be the only thing people talk about when it comes to AEW. That's why everyone is gravitating to me. Everyone is afraid to be a star, but I'm not afraid to be a star because I am one."


He's the last of a dying breed. If we had more guys like him wrestling would be a lot more fun to watch these days.

Good. He knows characters and promos and good acting get over. 2 flippy fucks with zero build no promo work and no major backstory or major tension and drama dont sell tickets. All the glory days of wrestling at its peak point to that. We need more of that today.

He's in character here with some IRL beliefs in there as well.

Re: MJF is not a fan of flippy dudes

AEW seems to be getting the right guys with the right mindset... MJF should be a huge deal in the years to come. He's been a blast to watch so far.

Now if we can just get the "No Flips just Fists" guys on AEW............
WINNING and TommyWCECM like this.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

God forbid a wrestler decides to do a flip

MJF along with a few other guys like him will balance out the flippy guys of AEW. That's good. Least AEW will be likely a mix of talent

It's less about the flips and more about the lack of selling and psychology. Some of the high flyers or "more athletic" guys get the art of wrestling, but many are like Ospreay who just flip out of their god damned minds and it becomes a dance instead of wrestling.

There is a reason Dustin/Cody blasted every match on the card out of the water, even the more athletic contests.... both guys understood how to sell, when to sell, when to go big, and when to go home. Many matches that some go gaga over are simple escalations of moves and kickouts until it ends. No story, just escalating mayhem. Some people might like it, but that is not great wrestling.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
