• “The emotional turmoil of being transgender has almost ended me on multiple occasions” – Tyler Reks

After being the #1 topic of conversation in the pro-wrestling world today due to a life-changing decision, former WWE wrestler Tyler Reks has now issued a statement on this.

You can read it below:

“The ball dropped early today as this is now worldwide news. This is me. Unashamed, unabashedly me. This is the side of me that has hidden in the shadows, afraid and fearful of what the world would think; afraid of what my family, friends, and followers would say or do.

I am no longer afraid and I am no longer fearful. I can now say with confidence, that I love myself for WHO I am.

The previous eight months have been some of the darkest of my entire life. The emotional turmoil of being transgender and having to face the world has almost ended me on multiple occasions.

However, the day I stopped caring about what other people thought, was the day I truly became limitless and allowed my authentic self to come into the light.

My loving wife, family, and closest friends have accepted me for who I am. To them, I am forever grateful. Your support along the way means more than you will ever know.

I don’t expect everyone to agree or understand. It’s not my place to change any of your core beliefs. Just know that the outer shell may change, but the soul remains the same.

I know that many of you have questions and, as I have promised, they will all be answered. Tomorrow, on Extra, my interview with Billy Bush airs worldwide. I have included a link in the bio to this interview along with my personal coming out video that explains everything (waiting for Instagram to approve my name change and update the bio – please see my story for the link in the meantime).

I promise to always be transparent and truthful with my journey, and to be a light to those that are in need.

This is me.

Love always,

Gabbi Alon Tuft”
