An elementary school teacher who also performs as a professional wrestler is under investigation for his act, The Blast reports.
Kevin Bean, 36, teaches 5th and 6th graders at an elementary school in Boyertown, Pennsylvania.
But he also works for a local wrestling promotion, World Wide Wrestling Alliance, where he plays a Nazi character named “Blitzkrieg the German Juggernaut.” He waves a flag with the German Iron Cross, yells “Sieg Heil” and raises his arm in Nazi salutes.
In a video posted by a journalist from Pro Wrestling Sheet, children hold signs and cheer for the Nazi.

Dino Sanna, owner of the promotion, said the teacher is a “good guy” who is religious and “not hateful”
Sanna said the students cheering for the Nazi character were Bean’s students.
