Together, Dropkick Depression and RAINN will be creating the first ever professional wrestling driven physical assault and harassment training program following the Speaking Out Movement.

Middlesex, New Jersey – August 4, 2021 – Terra Calaway, the founder of Dropkick Depression, a mental health driven professional wrestling organization, has partnered with RAINN to create the first ever professional wrestling physical harassment and assault education and prevention training program. This program is aimed to help create a community of prevention in the independent professional wrestling world following the Speaking Out Movement.


In the early months of 2020, professional wrestling as a whole underwent a movement dubbed “The Speaking Out Movement”, named for the hashtag used throughout Twitter #SpeakingOut in which professional wrestlers, individuals behind the scenes of wrestling promotions, as well as fans came forward to speak about their experiences with physical assault within the professional wrestling community. The community was shaken up and many changes were made throughout companies as large as World Wrestling Entertainment and All Elite Wrestling down to the local promotion bringing in neighborhood fans.

Terra Calaway and Dropkick Depression have engaged RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-physical violence organization, to develop and deliver a physical misconduct and assault education, awareness and support training in the fall/winter of 2021. This training is being specifically tailored to cater to the world of professional wrestling, will be interactive, and will relate to the experiences in wrestling of how physical violence affects the community.

Further information is available at www.dropkickdepression.com/rainn as well as on Dropkick Depression’s official Twitter @OperationDD and Terra Calaway’s official Twitter @TerraCalaway. The program will be live in November 2021 with the first class being taken on the 16th.
