Not sure if this is old news or not cause I haven't been following.
SourceTonight is the night for Nyla Rose, a woman of many names. She wears her Oneida heritage with pride in the U.S. under the moniker the Native Beast. Japanese wrestling fans recognize her as the American Kaiju. Fans of Tofu Pro Wrestling recognize her as Debbie Kong. Viewers of Canada’s OutTV might even know her as Su from the trans-focused sitcom “The Switch.”
But in February 2019 Rose earned her most historic title to date: full-time member of the All Elite Wrestling roster.
The move made Rose the first out transgender woman to ever sign a full-time deal with a major American wrestling promotion.
Rose isn’t the only out trans wrestler plying their craft between the ropes, but her signing stands as the next step in LGBTQ acceptance in an industry that is only recently softening its attitudes toward LGBTQ competitors and fans.
