‘Lucha Underground’ Star Joey Ryan’s Powerful Penis Rises Up Against Homophobia in Pro Wrestling
Ryan was signed to play gay character “Chase Walker” in un-released episodes of upstart Wrestling Retribution Project. For that character, Ryan wanted to do something he has never before seen in pro wrestling.

“In the past, with characters like Goldust and Orlando Jordan, gay characters have always been creepy or weird, using their sexuality to freak other wrestlers out,” he stated. “I wanted to have a character that fought the good fight, did well for himself and just so happened to be gay.”

While the project never took off, Ryan says the character’s values and persona more accurately reflect gay athletes. Comments like Cornette’s on Twitter, he suggests, undermine that reality and draw negative response from those unwilling to accept members of the LGBT community as people and athletes.
