The All Elite Wresting world champion was given the Key to the Town of Oyster Bay Monday by Supervisor Joe Saladino.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman is a 2014 graduate of Plainview-Old Bethpage High School and is now a household name in professional wrestling.
Despite his international notoriety, he says he is proud of his Long Island roots.
"The level of warmth I feel in this place is why I always say that Long Island is the most magical place in the world, and now I have a key to that," Friedman says.
Saladino also proclaimed April 5 as Maxwell Jacob Friedman Day in honor of his charity work with "AEW Together."
Friedman and the rest of the AEW wrestlers will be at UBS Arena on Wednesday.
