“Everyone at TNA stands firmly behind this new anti-bullying campaign. The bullying must stop, and we want to take a stand,” says TNA Chief Marketing Officer Al Ovadia. “There’s no place in our schools for bullying, be it based on a student’s looks, race, sexual orientation or anything else.”
Several TNA stars admit to dealing with bullying in school, according to the press release.
“Growing up, I was bullied until I was a freshman in high school because I didn’t conform to a group or play sports,” wrestler Mr. Anderson says. “I was open that I liked video gaming and comic books and got picked on for that.”
TNA Impact! airs Thursday nights on Spike TV from 9 p.m. to midnight.
