One of Brendan Dassey's post-prison wishes has just been fulfilled. xHamster, the popular porn site that you definitely don't have bookmarked on both your phone and your laptop, has stepped in to make sure the nephew of main Making a Murderer subject Steven Avery gets to peep WrestleMania with his family. Dassey, as previously reported, was ordered to be released within 90 days following an overturned conviction.
"We are pleased that we can make this young man's dream of going to WrestleMania come true," xHamster spokesperson Alex Hawkins told Complex in a statement Monday. "We have been in talks with the family and they are more than thrilled that Brendan will get this opportunity after so many years of heartache and injustice. We are waiting on a response from Brendan and we know he will be thrilled that he is going to WrestleMania when he gets out."
xHamster recently slid into headlines with the unveiling of a new mascot, following 8 fruitful years under the OG hamster logo. "Our audience wants to see our logo evolve because they are connected with our brand, free spirited and wild at heart," Hawkins said in a press release last week. "That's why we came up with this simple but sexy new logo version. We never want to become too comfortable with something we did well long ago. We always view our own success as a challenge to see what we can do to become even better and set new levels of accomplishment for xHamster in the future."
Their offer to send Dassey and his family to WrestleMania comes shortly after a dedicated group of supporters launched a Change.org petition. The petition, which now has nearly 2,200 signatures, calls for Vince McMahon and the WWE to step up with some dream fulfillment. However, it would appear they've been beaten to the punch by that porn site you definitely weren't perusing right before reading this article.
Dassey's conviction in the murder of Teresa Halbach was overturned earlier this month by a Milwaukee judge, who argued that Dassey's controversial confession had been unconstitutionally obtained and coerced. Unless Wisconsin prosecutors move to retry Dassey on the charges within 90 days, he will be released. According to TMZ, his post-prison plans also include getting a job in the video game industry and consuming his mother's famous lasagna.
