Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF): A Brief Biography

Maxwell T. Friedman is an American professional wrestler signed with AEW. He is best known as MJF and for his work with AEW.

Professional Wrestling Career

Early Years (2015-2019)

Friedman worked at several CWZ dojos and trained to become a professional wrestler. He originally auditioned for WWE Tough Enough in 2015. He made his career by climbing the ladder in MLZ and CZW. He won singles and tag titles on independent promotions before signing with AEW.


AEW (2019-Present)

In 2019, Friedman signed a five-year deal with AEW. Friedman aligned himself with Cody. At Full Gear, he turned on Cody and cost him the title. He began his feud with Cody, where he hired Wardlow as his insurance. At Revolution, he defeated Cody.

He had an undefeated streak which led him to the AEW World Heavyweight Championship. At All Out 2020, he lost to Jon Moxley, which ended his winning streak. At Full Gear, he wrestled Chris Jericho to enter the Inner Circle and won. He decisively entered the stable and started feuding with Sammy Guevara.

MJF with his Diamon Ring

At Revolution 2021, Chris Jericho and MJF faced The Young Bucks for the AEW World Tag Team Championship and lost. After Revolution, Sammy confronted MJF. However, MJF secretly created his own stable to take out Inner Circle.

MJF became the leader of The Pinnacle and challenged Inner Circle to a Blood and Guts match. The stable won when MJF threw Chris off the cage. They collided against each other in a Stadium Stampede, which Inner Circle won.

MJF has won the Diamond Dozen Battle Royal for three consecutive years. He feuded with the likes of Sammy Guvera, Jungle Boy, and Darby Alin. At Full Gear 2021, he defeated Darby Allin. In 2022, he began feuding with CM Punk. After weeks of confrontation, MJF defeated CM Punk in Chicago. At Revolution, CM Punk defeated MJF in a dog collar match after Wardlow betrayed MJF and helped Punk.


This led to a singles match between Wardlow and MJF at Double or Nothing. MJF no-showed the fan fest building up to the event. He was defeated at DoN and delivered a shoot promo on the following Dynamite where he let out his frustration on Tony Khan and fans.

He then went on an indefinite hiatus. At All Out 2022, a superstar called Joker entered the Casino Ladder Match with a mask at the position of a Joker. Later that night, The Joker confronted the AEW Champion CM Punk and revealed himself as MJF, thus marking his return to the company, which was uncertain up until that point.
