MJF has become a bigger deal in AEW over the past few months. Not only does have a title shot for AEW World Heavyweight Championship and also has a big project or two in the works as well.

While speaking on the NotSam Wrestling podcast, MJF confirmed he has an upcoming movie role, but he’s been pitched for other opportunities outside the squared circle.

“It’s business, the pro wrestling business. It’s also a sport, don’t get me wrong, but within that sport,” MJF explained, “there’s a business and my goal has always been to make the most amount of money, to then use that to transcend and enter into the Hollywood sphere and then literally leave all of my fans in the dust and pretend I never knew they existed in the first place.

“I don’t even like wrestling. Here’s the thing — I studied it, I had to in order to be the best. I think through studying it, I grew an appreciation towards professional wrestling,” he added. “But once I’m done, you will never see me again.”


MJF said people might be doubting the credibility of his comments. However. he feels everyone will find out how truthful he’s been in a few months from now.

“I am using this sport like a succubus, I am sucking the life out of it, the blood, the money, and then I will be gone. I’ve already booked a huge movie, I’m not allowed to announce what it is, but it will be happening and it will be happening soon. Again, I’m not allowed or at liberty to say if [ICM Partners agent] Bryan Diperstein helped at this moment.”

“If he did, I’ll tell you this — he did a great job. So I have that going on,” he explained, “the people at Warner Bros. Discovery are like crazy high on MJF, they are coming up with potential ideas for MJF outside of the wrestling sphere. There’s also a podcasting opportunity that has been thrown my way that I am considering.”

“So I’m honestly — and I’m not saying this to be funny, because again, when we had our first interview back in 2019, I believe, I said a bunch of stuff and I’m sure people watched and went, ‘What a funny character this is.’ I’m dead serious, you’re going to find out everything that I’m talking about in a few months’ time was completely and entirely real because everything about me is completely and entirely real,” he stated. “I am MJF 24/7 and what happens when you’re MJF 24/7, is you get insane opportunities. And there’s a lot of people in [Los Angeles] that want a piece of Maxwell Jacob Friedman.”

MJF is bound to be the first homegrown mainstream star for AEW. With confidence and charisma, he is bound to reach the next level on the stage real soon.
