MJF receives major accolade!

The New York Times included MJF’s Le Dinner Debonair performance in their list of the Best Performances of 2020. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of the list, Wesley Morris, praised MJF’s performance. Morris also took a shot at WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.

“It [Le Dinner Debonair] was less than spectacular, though not for anything Friedman did. He wasn’t embarrassed at all. He was smooth in a way that should worry Ric Flair. This kid makes you wanna say,”Woo!” he wrote.

MJF took to Twitter to share the news with a note describing how much his grandpa loved his and Chris Jericho‘s rendition of ‘Me and My Shadow.’ He also shared a picture with his grandpa.

The ‘Best Performer’ Celebration!

The ‘Salt of the Earth‘ is not your ordinary man. Everything he does is his way. Rather, it was MJF’s idea for him and Chris Jericho to do the Le Dinner Debonair. Celebrations are also a slightly different affair for this man.

MJF has the talent and the brain. Firstly, he orchestrated the highly acclaimed Le Dinner Debonair. Secondly, he defeated a legend in Chris Jericho to enter the Inner Circle. Now, being the best performer for 2020, his luck is certainly on a roll.

Keeping up with his good luck and momentum, he won the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal alongside Orange Cassidy. Next week, he faces the ‘Freshly Squeezed’ Orange Cassidy for his Dynamite Diamond Ring. Plus, it’s the Inner Circle’s ultimatum next week.

With the wave of momentum he’s on, it won’t be a shocker if he keeps his ring against Cassidy next week. As far as the ultimatum is concerned, Sammy Guevara and MJF might lock heads. Let’s see what happens!
