Here's What Never To Say When Dating a Gay Black Man
Professional wrestling in America has a long and homophobic history filled with flamboyant villains but very few out-and-proud LGBTQ-identified athletes. Rick Cataldo wants to change that. Inspired by female wrestlers he saw growing up, Caltado dropped out of high school at age 14 to start working a busboy and training twice a week to become a pro wrestler.
The internet knows the power of Joey Ryan's penis. Before signing to cable's Lucha Underground earlier this year, professional wrestling's "King of Sleaze" became a viral sensation when he defeated a supposedly gay Japanese competitor with little more than a hip-thrust! Though Ryan admits the match ending "sounded like a scene from South Park " when proposed, he had no idea the concept's ridiculousness would make him the darling of the world wide web. And, Ryan concedes, he certainly didn't expect to elicit a "homophobic" response from one of sports entertainment's most iconic personalities. The pending battle between an overtly homoerotic persona and Ryan's own sex-laced character, reminiscent of '70s era straight male porn stars, captured fans' imaginations and made Japanese headlines.
