MJF took to Twitter to reveal a recent discovery – a list he made on his first day of pro-wrestling training.
The AEW broke character in a rare Tweet that named Adam Cole and Cody Rhodes as two dream opponents when he was just starting out.
MJF posted on Twitter that his former trainer Pat Buck found a note MJF had written during training, detailing his dream opponents in wrestling.
The list started with Bear Bronson, who also trained at the Create-A-Pro wrestling school.
The note was from 2014, when MJF was just 18 years old.
In the Twitter post, MJF wrote:
“Today my trainer @buckneverstops cleaned out his car and found something from 2014!!!”
“When I entered @CreateAPro all the students were asked to do an exercise where we write out three opponents.”
The first one being someone you’d like to wrestle that was a genuine possibility.
The second and third being two active wrestlers that were dream opponents.
This is what I wrote.”
This was accompanied by a photo of a note with three names on.
- Bear Bronson
- Cody Rhodes
- Adam Cole
This list just goes to show how much MJF has achieved in a short space of time.
He drew with Adam Cole on AEW Dynamite (as is now his tag team partner), and beat Cody Rhodes at AEW Revolution 2020.
MJF also listed “become a top indy name” as his goal. Giving indie meant “not WWE” at that time, the AEW Champion certainly has achieved that.
Sean Ross Sapp replied to the Tweet, joking that MJF became a top indie name by beating Hiroshi Tanahashi at Forbidden Door.
