You may know Brendan Dassey as the confused but lovable teenage cousin from the 2015 Netflix true crime hit Making a Murderer.

Dassey, who blundered his way through what many would call unethical police questioning tactics, has spent the better part of his adolescence and adulthood behind bars for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

Since a judge overturned his conviction on Aug. 12, fans have rallied around Dassey, eager to give him back the years he lost and then some. True fans of the show will know that Dassey lamented the loss of simple pleasures while imprisoned. He wanted a pet cat, and he yearned with all his heart to see WrestleMania live.

A change.org petition to send Dassey to WrestleMania on the trip of a lifetime quickly earned more than 2,000 signatures. And now, according to Complex, popular porn site xHamster will be footing the bill for Dassey’s dream trip.

“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.”

According to TMZ, Dassey’s other dreams for life as a free man include getting a job in video game design and chowing down on some of his mom’s home-cooked chili and lasagna.
