- WCNC has an article about a promoter in Denton, North Carolina denying black wrestlers and fans from appearing at their independent wrestling event on June 23rd after allegedly receiving a threat from the KKK.
"More or less any black wrestlers and even black fans weren't welcome in the show," said Chris Rogers, who wrestles for the promotion. "You could have cut the tension in the locker room with a knife because we felt like why are we even here to put on a show for these people if we can't have our brothers of another race or nationality."
"Tell them I said, 'Shut the hell up and leave it alone,'" said the unnamed promoter. "I was warned by a text message from an unknown number." He went on to state that he received a text message from the KKK reading, "Do not bring no blacks into Denton. You have been warned. The White Knights."
