TikTok is using a roast of the Midwest to discuss everything else they find “mid.”
In internet slang, the term “mid” refers to anything subpar or mediocre. Now thanks to a rant by All Elite Wrestling (AEW) fighter MJF, people are railing against all things they dub “mid.” In MJF’s monologue, he states, “It’s called the Midwest because every single thing in it is mid.” TikTok was quick to upload the speech and turn it into a viral sound.

While participating in a match in Cincinnati, Ohio wrestler MJF took to insulting the city and his opponent.
“It’s called the Midwest because every single thing in it is mid,” MJF said. “Skyline chili? Mid. Your Cincinnati Reds who haven’t won a World Series since 1990? Muh-muh-muh-muh-mid! And every single person who lives here is… mid!”
