On Friday, it was reported that Brendan Dassey, nephew of Steven Avery, had his murder conviction overturned by a federal judge. As a result, he could be freed within the next 90 days if the state does not choose to retry him.
If he is free, he will get to watch WWE’s biggest pay-per-view event Wrestlemania, which he complained about missing when he was forced into confessing the murder.
It seems like fans of Dassey want him to be able to see Wrestlemania on a completely different level. Matthew Kick started a Change.org petition on Saturday to help send the fan to Wrestlemania 33, in Orlando, Florida next April.
“Dassey, now 27, was originally convicted of helping his uncle, Steven Avery, in the murder of Teresa Halbach but a federal judge has ruled that his constitutional rights were violated when he was grilled, without a parent or his lawyer present, at the age of 16. We ask that the WWE and Vince McMahon help make his dream come true and send Brendan Dassey to Wrestlemania.”
Dassey is famously remembered for complaining on the Netflix docu-series “Making a Murderer” that he was missing Wrestlemania 21 as he was likely going to be in prison at the time of the event on April 10, 2005.
The petition currently has 150 signatures and you can only hope it gets to the desk of Vince McMahon and he does the right thing.
