Maxwell Jacob Friedman, maybe the most important rising star in skilled wrestling, is engaged to his girlfriend, Naomi Rosenblum.
“I mentioned sure 🙂 …and sure, I pressured him to smile for pics (after he instructed me I’m the luckiest lady on the earth),” Rosenblum wrote in an Instagram caption saying the information.
Friedman, who performs a personality in All Elite Wrestling as an entitled and crafty rich Lengthy Island native, tweeted, “Girls panicking on my TL [timeline] don’t fear. Simply cuz there’s a goalie doesn’t imply you possibly can’t rating. Try for greatness. #Saltoftheearth.”
The couple posted engagement photographs from in entrance of El Parador Cafe in Manhattan.
Friedman, now 26, joined AEW across the time of its launch in early 2019. He had a chronic story with Chris Jericho, throughout which they carried out a musical duet that was so critically acclaimed that it was named among the finest performances of 2020 within the New York Instances.
This previous June, Friedman gave a “pipe bomb” promo by which he blasted AEW and its founder Tony Khan. He vanished from TV programming for a number of months, because the surreal style of professional wrestling saved followers guessing as as to whether his monologue represented his true frustrations with the corporate, or if it was all a part of the story — or each.
MJF returned at “All Out” over Labor Day weekend. After henchmen cleared the ring of a battle royal the place rivals fought to assert a big poker chip to money in for a world title shot, he returned sporting a masks, to the tune “Sympathy for the Satan” by the Rolling Stones. On the finish of the present, he revealed himself.
MJF’s burgeoning feud with CM Punk seems to be placed on maintain as AEW offers with the fallout from Punk’s post-“All Out” theatrics.
Rosenblum graduated from the Wharton Faculty of Enterprise on the College of Pennsylvania in 2022. Whereas lots of her classmates pursued careers in banking and consulting, she works as an artist.
“That has been actually tough to navigate, particularly with all the stress and everybody interviewing for banks,” she mentioned in an interview with “thirty fourth Road” final 12 months. “Making an attempt to do my very own factor may be very terrifying.”
She added: “Do what’s going to make you cheerful, after which the whole lot will fall into place and include time.”
