Fan Ejected For Holding Up Highly Offensive Sign Aimed At Transgender Wrestler
| Last updated
A bloke was kicked out of the arena during an AEW Dynamite event after he held up a very offensive sign aimed at an openly transgender wrestler Nyla Rose.
Rose was competing in a match against Riby Soho in North Carolina when a spectator caught everyone's attention.
While Rose and Soho were battling it out inside the ring, a man in the crowd could be seen waving around a transphobic banner which has now landed him in hit water.
The sign read: "Nyla Rose is that guy's dad."

Rose clearly noticed the sign and decided to hit back by flipping the man off while she was near the ropes.
It was the perfect "F you" to the idiotic supporter, although unfortunately that was probably the exact sort of reaction the bloke was hoping to get from his stunt.
When footage of the sign aired on AEW's broadcast, it wasn't long before arena security was informed of the incident and the man was swiftly ejected.
Many wrestling fans jumped to Rose's defence, slamming the bloke for his actions.
Rose's wife also took to social media to throw support behind her partner.
"My wife is the strongest person I know," she tweeted.
"To everyone wondering. The a**hole was removed from the venue.
"There has been so much more love than hate tonight and that alone tells me we are all doing something right. They call us names, call us sensitive, when the real issue is; they're mad they can't just get away with being bigots anymore. They always tell on themselves. Let them.

Back in 2019, AEW star Rose made sports history by becoming the first transgender person to sign with a major wrestling promotion in the United States.
She has since gone on to establish herself as a fan favourite within the wider wrestling community.
