• School Authorities Investigating Teacher Who Worked As A Pro-Wrestler With Nazi Gimmick
Kevin Bean, a 36-year-old man from Boyertown, PA who is a teacher of children for 5th and 6th grade, is under investigation by his school district for working as a pro wrestler with a Nazi gimmick.
He works for World Wide Wrestling Alliance and goes by the name of Blitzkrieg “The German Juggernaut”. His entrance includes waving a flag which has the German Iron Cross on it while throwing up Nazi salutes.
The school district has issued the following statement about the situation:
“Spring-Ford Area School District was made aware of a video featuring an employee, outside of the school setting, participating in an amateur wrestling event. Once administrators were made aware of the video they acted immediately to conduct an internal investigation.
The actions portrayed in this video do not represent the core values of the school district. As an educational organization, we pride ourselves in providing a safe and nurturing learning environment.”
