All Elite Wrestling just signed history's first major league transgender wrestler, Nyla Rose.

Announced yesterday at an event at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the rival WWE league is taking some groundbreaking strides forward for LGBTQ+ representation. The newly formed AEW is owned by billionare Shahid Khan, who also owns NFL's Jackson Jaguars and English football team Fulham FC, according to PinkNews.

"Oh it’s true alright," Rose confirmed on Twitter.

We can see from a clip posted on Twitter that Rose has already landed herself in a feud with fellow wrestler Kylie Rae. We'll see that seed to fruition on AEW's second event on May 25.
