For those of you who missed it, back in April IMPACT Knockout Gisele Shaw shared her horrible experience at WrestleCon. She took to social media to explain what took place and how she was verbally attacked by Rick Steiner in regards to her transgender identity.
Shaw recently spoke with Cultaholic and stated that although the incident was unfortunate she appreciates those that supported her.
“It is very unfortunate that that incident happened, especially that they are certain people that I watched growing up and that I looked up to growing up. It’s just unfortunate that it did happen. I don’t know what the motive was, but all I can say is that I’m just so grateful for the people that supported me and have been there for me when I went through that, because that was really rough for me personally. I didn’t want to get out of bed because of what happened, there’s been so many people that have supported me and said, hey, no, you’re not sleeping, you need to get out. Things like that happen unfortunately still. We’ve come so far as a community, but I feel like there’s still so much work to do so all we got to do is keep pushing forward and make sure we support in and out of wrestling.” (Fightful)
