Depending on whether or not his conviction remains overturned, Brendan Dassey could be headed to WrestleMania, according to multiple media reports.

Pornography website xHamster announced Monday they're funding a trip for Dassey and his family to attend WrestleMania 33 in Orlando on April 2.

The Department of Justice has 90 days to either retry Dassey, appeal the decision, or release him from prison outright. His conviction was overturned by a federal judge earlier this month.

xHamster told USA Today they've been in contact with the Dassey family, and depending on the outcome from the DOJ, they're also waiting on confirmation from Dassey himself.

“We are pleased that we can make this young man’s dream of going to Wrestlemania come true,” said Alex Hawkins, spokesman for xHamster. “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.

Monday, Attorney General Brad Schimel said in a news conference that the DOJ would probably act much sooner than the 90 day deadline.
