MJF has gone through a lot in his pro wrestling career, and he has made the fact that he is Jewish a big part of his character. That representation has been noticed all over, and now he’s set to receive a big honor for it.
MJF is not only the AEW World Champion, but he is also 1/2 of the ROH Tag Team Champions. As he continues down his path toward Samoa Joe at AEW Worlds End on December 30th, he will take some time beforehand for a big night.
MJF posted on X to let everyone know that he is going to receive another honor. He will be inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame on December 18th. He posted a graphic for the announcement along with a short caption to sum everything up.
“An incredible honor. #Betterthanyou.”
The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum has honored great Jewish athletes for years. Their website showcases the organization’s commitment to give a spotlight to those athletes, and other notable figures in sports, from the Jewish community.
The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, in Commack, New York, the first annual induction ceremony was established in 1993. It is dedicated to honoring American Jewish figures who have distinguished themselves in sports. Its objective is to foster Jewish identity through athletics and to commemorate sports heroes who have emerged from people not commonly associated with sports. The hall has inductees in the sports of American football, auto-racing, baseball, basketball, bicycling, bowling, boxing, Canadian football, canoeing, cycling, fencing, figure skating, golf, gymnastics, handball, horse showing, horse-racing, ice hockey, karate, lacrosse, marathon running, pole vault, racquetball, rowing, rugby, shot put, skiing, soccer, softball, squash, swimming, tennis, track, triathlete, volleyball, weightlifting, and wrestling. It has also inducted authors, broadcasters, columnists, and sportscasters.
This is a big deal for MJF, so odds are he will be around for the December 18th induction. Odds are, MJF will see himself in many more Hall of Fame situations by the time his career is over, but this is a notable moment for him.
We will have to see if MJF mentions this big honor during AEW television. If anything, it may give him another ring to show off.
