MJF Names Only Himself As His Mount Rushmore Of Long Island Wrestlers, Calls Mick Foley A Hack

During a recent interview with Newsday, MJF commented on who he believes is his Mount Rushmore of Long Island wrestlers. True to form – MJF named himself in all four spots and said Mick Foley is nothing more than a “hack.”

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On being loved in Long Island but hated everywhere else: “It’s not just geography. It’s biology. Long Islanders are just born better. It’s in our blood. I leave my apartment in Glen Cove every day, and I just inhale the air, as if it’s a drug. Because the air here is better. The beaches are better. The people are better. The gyms are better. The movies are better. Everything here is better.”

On if Long Islanders are simply heels: “I detest that word. I think what it makes Long Islanders is honest. That’s the word I would use. We’re honest — brutally honest. We’re not afraid to say it like it is. I feel like that’s why when I come home to the UBS Arena, I’m shrouded with love and respect. I’m not just from Long Island, I am Long Island.”

On his Mount Rushmore of Long Island wrestlers: “The Mount Rushmore of Long Islanders who are professional wrestlers, I just think is me four times. I think Mick Foley is a hack, and it’s really upsetting that I never got to wrestle him — not because it would be a dream come true for me, but just because I really want to punch him in the face and knock him out with my Dynamite diamond ring, and prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I’m the greatest Long Island wrestler that’s ever lived.”

On if he’d prefer his title match being closer to Long Island: “Of course I would. But, it’s still the Tri-State area, and, in my mind, that’s my backyard. All I do is travel. Very rarely do I get to breathe in Northeast air. So I will take it. To me it is a homecoming. And, hopefully, it’s the crowning of the new homecoming king. This is not just the hardest match of my career. It’s the most historic, because we could potentially be crowing the face of the next generation of professional wrestling.”
