Vidal commented on his signing with IMPACT on OutSports’ LGBT In The Ring:
“It’s knocking down barriers and everything that I have always wanted to do for my community in professional wrestling.
“I talk about this a lot, but growing up, I had nobody to look up to when it came to representation.
“To know that maybe one day down the line somebody will see me on TV and will be inspired by me being openly gay, it will inspire them to chase whatever goals and dreams they have as an open person in the LGBTQ community.”
