"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."
