On September 9th, 2021, the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) YouTube channel posted a clip from a September 8th fight in Cincinnati, Ohio where wrestler MJF (signed to AEW) goes on an aggressive rant against the Midwest U.S. He starts by calling the audience pot-bellied pigs and saying Cincinnati is the “biggest dumpster fire in the world.” He then says, “It’s called the Midwest because every single thing in it is mid,” resulting in boos from the crowd. MJF goes on to call Skyline Chili, a Cincinnati chili chain, mid, then calls the Cincinnati Reds mid for not winning a World Series since 1990. One commentator agrees. Finally, he says “every single person in here is mid.” The video gained over 547,000 views in two months (shown below).
ITS CALLED THE MIDWEST BECAUSE EVERY SINGLE THING IN IT IS MID. SKYLINE CHILI? MID! YOUR CINCINNATI REDS WHO HASN’T WON A WORLD SERIES CHAMPION SINCE 1990? MUH MUH MUH MUH MID!
