AEW signs LGBTQ wrestler Sonny Kiss

The AEW Double or Nothing Ticket Announcement Party announced a lot more than just info on the Tickets. Several signings were made official, matches were announced and partnerships were made at this historic event.

One of the wrestlers signed is former Lucha Underground wrestler Sonny Kiss fka XO Lishus. Kiss, an openly gay wrestler, will bring diversity and a different style of wrestling to All Elite Wrestling.

In his promo at the Ticket Announcement Party, Kiss cut a vicious promo about what to expect from him in AEW and also announced that he’ll be appearing at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view on May 25th.

    Third time we agree… this is weird.

  • Keith Learmonth

    What the media portrays as “normal” is straight white couples with 2.5 kids.

    In reality, that hasn’t been normal in decades, and never will be, because as you correctly pointed out, normal is a social construct. I think it’s one that needs to be demolished, even if it’s demolished by “political” gay characters on TV.

  • Soulshroude

    What’s “normal” again? You think I’m strange because I dress differently than you. I think you’re strange because you all dress the same.

  • Keith Learmonth

    And I’m tired of media portraying straight white people as the only “normal” people, while any kind of positive portrayal of gay people, trans people, non-white people, hell, even people with alternative fashion sense is suddenly “Shoving it down people’s throats!!!”

    The right opinion is this is the greatest thing ever. I will be banning all who say otherwise! Praise me for my tolerance, for I am KillswitchTheBiitch!

  • Soulshroude

    My view is this: Don’t shove sh*t down my throat that I don’t want, need, desire. I’m basically sick and tired of any type of media, or person trying to cram stupid politics, religion, etc. in my face, just to state that … … this is “important”, when in reality… in my perspective, it doesn’t matter to me one damned bit. Go find someone else to placate, I don’t need that garbage.

  • Soulshroude

    Exactly. That’s twice that we agree on something.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Personally, I believe that the Dream’s character is Dream-sexual. Only cares about what gets him off, doesn’t care what it is.

  • Soulshroude

    Guessing this counts for Velveteen Dream, as well? Even if his “gimmick” is just that and I believe him to be bold faced straight.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Take pride, but don’t ever show it?

    How the hell does that work?

  • Soulshroude

    Does anyone really care about that side of politics? WWE has a lesbian and a few openly gay guys. So what? This “trend” of “let’s flaunt the LGBT community” really needs to just… retire, itself. Take pride in who or “what” you think you are… quit cramming it down my throat (pun intended).

  • Keith Learmonth

    I saw Sonny’s work as XO-Licious on Lucha Underground. Pretty solid talent. As long as they can avoid doing obvious cheap storylines that mock LGBT+ people and portray them as being evil just because of how they live, this is a good signing.

    Wrestling really needs to get rid of that old “Different = bad” mentality. Wrestling’s fan base is full of people who would be considered “different”.
