During a recent episode of Sportskeeda UnSKripted, veteran wrestling journalist Bill Apter spoke about AEW sensation MJF.
According to Apter, MJF is currently great on the mic but back in the day, his incredible skills would’ve mattered depending on which territory he would be in.
Apter claimed that Friedman would’ve been too small for WWWF. However, the current AEW star would’ve been great in the National Wrestling Alliance, where he could’ve mixed it up with the likes of Mike Graham, Steve Keirn, Jack Brisco and Dory Funk- among other notable names.
“Well he’s good on the mic, but it depends on what territory would he be in. I think he would’ve been too small for the WWWF. He would’ve been very good in the National Wrestling Alliance, wrestling people like Mike Graham, Steve Keirn, Jack Brisco, Dory Funk, yeah.” – said Bill Apter.
Bill Apter further compared MJF to Nick Bockwinkel, stating that once the AEW star matures, he will be a lot like Bock.
“Oh, he absolutely does but I don’t know if I have that feel like a Bockwinkel because I know Nick Bockwinkel really well. I think, MJF, once he matures he may have that Bockwinkel air about him.” – added Bill Apter.
