The AEW World Champion, MJF, often touts himself as a "generational talent," and it seems that Adam Cole, a fellow professional wrestler, and close friend, recognized this potential long before MJF rose to the top. During a recent "Under the Ring" interview, Cole delved deep into his memories and spoke candidly about his first meeting with MJF, painting a vivid picture of a young talent destined for stardom.
"I recall our first encounter like it was yesterday," Cole began, his voice filled with admiration. "It must've been about 6 to 8 years ago when MJF was just dipping his toes into the wrestling arena. Fresh-faced and hungry, something about him grabbed my attention immediately.
I remember distinctly thinking, 'This guy's going places.' I know it's a sentiment many echo, but with him, it felt genuine. His prowess in the ring, his ability to captivate an audience, and his insatiable thirst for knowledge were all there."
Cole Marvels at MJF's Rise
Cole's tone grew more earnest as he continued, "I always believed MJF had that spark to be extraordinary.
But his career trajectory, his rapid ascent, has surpassed even my wildest expectations. He's still in his mid-20s! He's showcased time and time again not only his in-ring skills but his unparalleled mastery of the microphone.
The passion he brings — it's palpable. This guy lives and breathes professional wrestling. And the crazy part? He's just getting started." The relationship between Cole and MJF will be put to the ultimate test soon. In less than a week, they will join forces to challenge Aussie Open for the ROH World Tag Team Titles during the "All In: Zero" pre-show.
And, as anticipation builds, fans are eagerly awaiting their rematch for the coveted AEW World Title at the grand stage of Wembley Stadium. The wrestling world is abuzz, and all eyes are on these two titans as they prepare for a showdown that promises to be nothing short of legendary.
