Griselda rappers Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine and Benny the Butcher’s clothing line is opening a physical store at the Walden Galleria in Buffalo, New York, and some very familiar faces are in their ads. As seen below, AEW stars The Butcher, The Blade and The Bunny (Allie) are in the latest Buffalo Kids ad in the Buffalo Airport. Braxton Sutter (The Blade) actually used to work at the airport and got quite emotional at how far he’s come due to betting on himself.

“This one means a lot to me,” wrote Sutter on Twitter. “This picture is hanging in the Buffalo Airport. I worked there for over 10 years while pursuing pro wrestling out of my hometown. It was a great job, a union job where I made full-time money only working part-time hours. That was the idea, so I would have time to train, work indy shows on the weekends and keep chasing my passion.
“But a point in time came where I had been wrestling for over 10 years and I was in my 30s. I didn’t see myself getting out of the position I was in unless I made major changes in my life. So, I bet on myself and quit the airport in 2014 know I wasn’t going to be able to match that income with any other part-time job.
“In 2020, I conquered a major goal signing with All Elite Wrestling, completely changing my life. Now, there is an amazing picture of me, my wife and my best friend hanging in the terminal directly across from the restaurant I used to work at because of the choices and sacrificess I made in my life. It feels really good and I’d like to give a HUGE shoutout and thank you to good brother Westside Gunn for everything so far.
