Mark Henry recently compared MJF to WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin
On the recent episode of Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry explained how MJF and Stone Cold Steve Austin are similar.
The WWE legend stated that just like The Texas Rattlesnake had the fans riveted in a story, irrespective of whether he was a babyface or heel, the 27-year-old star possesses the same ability.
"Steve Austin wasn't a babyface. He was just a hell of an entertaining wrestler that whatever story he was trying to tell, he can reel your a** in. Max is, in a way, kind of the same right now," Mark Henry said.
MJF is slated to be an action at the upcoming AEW: WrestleDream pay-per-view, where he'll team up with Adam Cole to take on The Righteous.
