AEW World Champion MJF recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated on a number of topics including how important the AEW World Championship 60-Minute Iron Man Match against Bryan Danielson at the 2023 AEW Revolution PPV Event was for his pro wrestling career.
MJF stated that he learned far more inside of that match than he would ever learn in the history of his pro wrestling career.
MJF said, “I will say this about Bryan–I learned far more inside of that match, bell to bell, than I’d ever learned in the history of my career in a match.” “I wanted to kill that motherf***er, but I also learned what made Bryan Danielson the American Dragon. And that made me levels better. We have zero in common, and I mean zero, but I learned a lot. And that was the first time we’d ever shared a ring together, which too many people gloss over.”
It was noted that the match was the finest work of MJF’s career, and will also forever remain part of Danielson’s highlight reel.
