MJF inducted into National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame

MJF has another proud moment to add to his career résumé. The AEW world champion was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in Commack, NY.

MJF commented:

I’ve been a top name in this industry since I was 21.

I’ve accomplished more than I can remember at this point. Championships. Accolades. Awards.

But this might be the most important one outside of being your @aew World Champion.

My great great uncle Benny Friedman is in the NJSHF and I’m very glad and humbled I get to be standing beside him and all the other incredible Jewish athletes in history.

MJF spoke with Newsday TV about the honor.

MJF: Everybody in this hall of fame, everyone on the wall, had to fight discrimination and anti-semitism. Because just being an athlete and a Jew is really not supposed to be in the same sentence. ... I love Long Island more than anything, I love being Jewish more than anything, and I love being able to be a role model for young Jewish kids.

MJF chimed in on social media after the ceremony as only he can with a side serving of comedic attitude.

Chalk up another reason why MJF is better than you and you know it.
