San Antonio-based pro wrestling promotion Pride Championship Wrestling, one of the longest-running LGBTQ-led promotions in North America, has folded after founder and out pro wrestler Ignacio “Iggy” Mendoza’s status as a registered sex offender resurfaced via social media in recent weeks.

News of Mendoza’s past resurfaced on Aug. 18 in a Facebook post by San Antonio-based pro wrestler Veronica Brazier. “Ugh I have no words,” Brazier wrote alongside promotional images of Mendoza, who wrestles under the name “Texas Hellhound” Madness, and a screenshot of his page on the Texas sex offender registry. “Another one we had our children around … Iggy, so disappointed.”
