PWG held a packed show last night in Los Angeles, but one fan allegedly had a terrible time. Sadly, the Threemendous event brought some people to the show who greatly contradicted with the inclusive nature that the greater pro wrestling community represents. A transgender fan was allegedly assaulted in the bathroom of the Globe Theater during the event and now the company has released a public statement on the matter.
Pro Wrestling Guerrilla released three tweets to address this situation. They also disabled replies for those tweets. PWG made it clear that they do not condone such heinous activity and they will do everything possible to ensure that it never happens again. It was also noted that no report was made at the time of the incident, but they are working closely with the Globe Theater to address this terrible situation.
We are aware of the incident that was reported on Twitter last night during Threemendous VI. Upon learning of the report we immediately contacted the security and management of the Globe Theatre who investigated throughout the remainder of the night.
No report was made to Globe or PWG staff or management last night, however we are in contact with the victim and working closely with the Globe to address the situation.
PWG is committed to being a safe inclusive environment for all fans. We abhor and will not tolerate physical violence at our events.
This is a heartbreaking story to hear, because everyone should be allowed to enjoy pro wrestling. We can only hope that this kind of thing never happens again in any place, especially in the pro wrestling community.
