Impact Wrestling issues statement supporting Gisele Shaw

In a statement on their official website, Impact wrestling said they support Gisele Shaw after she came out as transgender.

The statement said that Shaw informed the company of her decision several months ago.

“Impact Wrestling fully supports Gisele, including connecting her with prominent LGBTQ+ resources, including GLAAD and Athlete Ally, and will continue to support her,” a post on the website read.

Impact Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore added, “Impact Wrestling has been at the forefront of empowering female performers for over 15 years. Our company believes featuring storylines with women athletes and characters from all different walks of life can not only entertain, but also inspire.”

D’Amore noted that inclusiveness and representation are important to Impact and its parent company Anthem Sports & Entertainment.

“But I’ll also add Gisele is in IMPACT Wrestling because of her wrestling ability, her charisma and because she fits in with our roster. She is in Impact Wrestling because she’s one of the best young talents anywhere in the business,” D’Amore concluded.
