Maxwell Jacob Friedman
Name: Maxwell Jacob Friedman
Alias: MJF, Maxwell Jacob Feinstein
Birthplace: New York, NY
Aerial: Aerial attacks are an under-utilized part of MJF’s repertoire. He skilled enough but uses them sparingly. Although I’d like to see a bit more, I understand his logic as he doesn’t want to be cheered.
Appearance: He is on the smaller end of the heavyweight scale but has a good build. That being said, he uses his look extremely well as it relates to his character. He is able to project his cockiness and ego just by walking to the ring.
Charisma: This is where MJF shines. He may be the most fully developed heel in wrestling today. He has an excellent grasp of his character and uses all his skills to enhance it. The best of which is his sharp tongue. He is a great promo and a great interview. Sometimes, he gets too caught up with the crowd and overworks it. He also has a tenancy to oversell and come off as comical.
Power: Friedman’s smaller size hinders him as far as power goes. Yet once again, he uses this to his advantage. He takes what should be a drawback and channels it into a character aspect to further his overall story.
Technical: Unfortunately, his prowess on the mic often overshadows his skill in the ring. He may not be the “technical wizard” he proclaims to be, but he is definitely a very solid grappler. He’s very comfortable on the mat, and he even uses a submission finisher.
Overview: Maxwell Jacob Friedman is a throwback to the classic heel. He is basically using a rehash of the Million Dollar Man gimmick, but he does it so well that no one cares. It’s scary to think how good he might end up being when he operating at this level only 3 years into the business. He’s cut down so many people on the mic that he may have trouble eventually working as a face, but he’s so good as a heel he’ll probably never have to.
