Odyssey Jones, one of NXT’s largest athletes is in hot water today after he made what appeared to be a transphobic post on social media. The big man has been a fan favorite for the colorful brand despite not always having the best in-ring win-loss record. Now he’s facing a completely different type of battle.
Odyssey shared a post on his Instagram story about a transgender man who gave birth. The headline stated that the man was outraged after nurses called him “mom.” Jones captioned the photo with a series of laughing emojis, as if he were mocking the situation.
Since the incident, Odyssey Jones has gone private on his socials. The owner of TransGraps, a Twitter account that covers the trans wrestling community, called out the wrestler. They also dragged him for what she believes is a boring overall character.
“We are sorry to learn that NXT wrestler Odyssey Jones is transphobic. We hope he stops being fucking stupid eventually and wish him the best in any future “not being a stupid piece of sh*t” endeavors.
I’m shocked to hear anything about Odyssey Jones frankly. I’m shocked anybody pays attention to such a fucking boring performance center graduate.”
Odyssey Jones came to WWE after a football career at Syracuse University. He signed in 2019. He has been a member of the NXT roster for his entire stint, except for a handful of dark matches. Time will tell there will be any repercussions coming down from WWE.
