Jai Vidal has signed a multi-year contract with Impact Wrestling. Vidal revealed the news on the latest episode of the “LGBT in the Ring” podcast.

In recent months, Vidal has been featured in the role of content creator and executive stylist for Gisele Shaw. Tommy Dreamer was the person who offered him a contract with the company. He said,

“I can’t even put into words how happy I am, how grateful I am for what the last few weeks has brought me. I am very happy and proud to announce that I have signed a multi-year contract with IMPACT Wrestling. I found that out this morning actually, that I am the first openly gay wrestler to sign a contract with IMPACT, and it took me a few minutes for it to actually sink in. It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s cool.’ I’m like, wait, no, hold on, that’s groundbreaking. It’s knocking down barriers. It’s everything that I’ve always wanted to do for my community in professional wrestling. I talk about this a lot, but growing up, I had nobody to look up to when it came to representation. So I would always find certain talent that I felt I could just connect to on a different level, such as Shawn Michaels or Jeff Hardy or Eddie Guerrero, because I am Latino, or even female wrestlers. To know that maybe one day down the line somebody will see me on TV and will be inspired by me being openly gay, it will inspire them to chase whatever goals and dreams they have as an open person in the LGBTQ community.“
