While most fans would love this moment and see it as a great opportunity to get trolled by MJF, the father in question was not amused.
“I tried to laugh it off knowing he’s just in character,” Tom Gilmartin said (via TMZ). “But it really upset him. I know that’s his gimmick but he’s only 7 & doesn’t understand.” Gilmartin even said that his son is now being mocked online, despite the fact that most people who know who MJF is, know that he would and does do this to anyone and everyone.One would think the kid would be a hero after this moment to his wrestling buddies.
MJF is not sorry
As seen in his post above, he tells the father to “cry about it.”
Furthermore, TMZ reached out to MJF for a response and he said: “F**k them kids.”
To make it even better for fans of AEW, especially those fans who dream that one day, MJF will insult them online, those in charge of AEW have no desire to change anything.
“If you have a meet/greet or inquire media-wise for MJF, you’ll get MJF,” Cody Rhodes wrote on Twitter (via TMZ). “Talent have freedom of expression so please don’t think anybody is going to act any different than they do on TV.”
With that said, Cody did offer him a VIP treatment at a future event.
AEW Dynamite airs on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on TNT.
