Meet the Transgender Wrestling Champion
When Nyla Rose started transitioning in 2007, she wasn’t sure if she would continue to be accepted in the wrestling world. Today, Rose is a member of the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) league’s active women’s roster. She’s also the first openly trans wrestler signed to a major promotion—she kicked off 2020 by winning the AEW Women’s World Championship. Rose, who goes by the name Native Beast in the ring, shows us some of her trademark moves.
