MJF inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum

AEW World champion MJF was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum yesterday, in a ceremony held in Commack, Long Island.

“I can’t put into words what today meant to me,” MJF said. “With the rampant discrimination and bigotry seen worldwide I proudly say i’m not just a Jew, I’m a human. We should all treat each other as such. Except me…I deserve special treatment because I’m a hall of fame level human!”

MJF’s great great uncle, American football player and coach Benny Friedman, is also part of the Hall of Fame and was inducted in 2004.

MJF became the third wrestling star to be inducted into this Hall of Fame, following Raven in 2009 and Bill Goldberg in 2010.

The Hall of Fame is dedicated to honoring American Jewish figures who have distinguished themselves in sports. It was established in 1993.
