As we get closer to NYWC “A Matter of Pride” we will be taking a look at the competitors taking part in the event. Today, we have a statement from former NXT star Bull James.
When I was with WWE and NXT we were (and they still are) based out of Orlando, FL. Everyone involved worked their tails off to produce what is now the hottest brand in the industry. But none of it would’ve been possible without the city of Orlando and its people. Fan or not the people of Orlando welcomed us with open arms and when the shooting at the Pulse nightclub happened I was disgusted and enraged. So, when NYWC made the decision to run the first LGBT wrestling event I asked to be a part of it immediately.
I’ve decided to make a Pride-themed set of gear to wear that night that I will be signing and auctioning off along with a 50/50 raffle I will doing at the event. The proceeds of both will be donated to One Orlando. With everything that the city of Orlando did for my career and the careers of my friends, peers and coaches it’s the least I can do and I’m proud to be a part of it!
