Val Venis has not shied away from his right-winged opinions, as his battle with pronouns has shifted back to an old war with vaccination. Now, he is using people that are beloved in the pro wrestling world, who all suffered from health issues, in viral propaganda to make his point.

This meme that he shared on X included photos of Chris Jericho, Keith Lee, Bray Wyatt, Damar Hamlin, and Triple H under people who are responsible for distributing and promoting the vaccine. Above them reads, in bold lettering, “STOP THE SHOTS.”

Val Venis posted that graphic along with a caption that said, “Stop the shots.” Although he did not go into any depth on this post, it is very clear how he feels about vaccination. He used a few hashtags as well, including #JusticeForBrayWyatt.

Keep in mind that Val Venis also once spread rumor that The Pope was arrested. This latest post was just one in a long line of outlandish claims, including that The Rock “sold his soul to the devil.”


As we previously reported, Val Venis made an incredibly bold claim about the vaccine in relation to Bray Wyatt’s passing. The former Intercontinental Champion said that mentioning that Wyatt suffered from COVID would drive people to get vaccinated, which is something he really doesn’t want.

It should be noted that Val Venis’ X account is severely restricted. When you search @ValVenisEnt, nothing comes up. His account must be accessed through other mentions on the timeline. Also, the post in question, where he made this unfounded claim about the vaccine, cannot be embedded, as we received a notice that, “Sorry, this content could not be embedded,” when we tried. You may check out the screenshot below to see his post.

Val Venis is not likely to make any return to WWE. That being said, he’s totally okay with being an outsider of the pro wrestling world, because he makes killing in the legal marijuana business these days.

This is quite a controversial take on the vaccine, but what do you have to say? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you think!
