Closet door bustdown

PHOTOS: This dreamy Israeli pro wrestling champ just came out as gay

Chances are you’ve never heard of Nir Rotenberg, the Israeli professional wrestler who goes by Rixon Raus.

But you’re going to want that to change, like, five minutes ago.

Rotenberg is the current reigning champ of the Israeli Wrestling League. He also just came out publicly to send other queer wrestlers the message that it’s ok to be who you are. And for what it’s worth, he’s also a dreamboat.

In an interview with WDG just before nabbing the championship (with a translation posted on A Wider Bridge), he said:

“I understood the extent of the responsibility and the influence that my actions have now that I am a champion, and I knew that it was time to come out of the closet in public. If I had a gay role model as a young wrestler, the fears I’ve had in the past would have been avoided.”
