This is heartbreaking! Apparently there are many more as well!
Also, as a British person, I am deeply ashamed and I feel for all of those victims involved!

WWE UK Talents Among Wrestlers Accused of Sexual Assault and Harassment in Wake of #SpeakingOut Movement

On Twitter, hashtag #Speakout became a prominent trend in the early hours of Friday after several women, associated with the pro-wrestling industry, spoke out against violence and sexual assault they had suffered.


Allegations of sexual assault and harassment have shocked the British pro-wrestling circuit with top pro-wrestlers, including several contracted with the WWE, being accused by various women.

On Twitter, hashtag #Speakout became a prominent trend in the early hours of Friday after several women, associated with the pro-wrestling industry, spoke out against violence and sexual assault they had suffered.


WWE’s Pete Dunne and the leading performer of WWE NXT UK brand also expressed shock on what he had been seeing on social media regarding allegations on his fellow wrestlers, stating, “This is a huge eye opener and let’s hope it will force a big change.”




WWE UK’s Jordan Devlin, Ligero, Travis Banks, Joe Coffey names have come up so far. WWE also released an official statement on Devlin – a former Cruiserweight champion - stating: “We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter.” Devlin is being accused of abuse, by a person named Hannah Francesca, who shared graphic photos on Twitter of bruises throughout her lower body. Her tweets are protected now.

“This is scary. I'm really scared. Jordan Devlin did this to me. And this is just the physical damage. Not including my arse and back bruises...because I don't fancy posting that online,” Francesca wrote. WWE NXT Superstar Piper Niven showed supported Francesca’s allegations, tweeting: “I feel like we are all just waiting for someone else to go first. I'm scared too, I see you and I love you. The pro-wresting world had been dealing with such allegations against an independent wrestler, David Starr, after a Twitter user by the name of Tori shared her story earlier this week, saying the 29-year-old sexually assaulted and abused her, prompting another woman to share her experience.


Since then, Starr has been dropped by various wrestling promotions, including an organization he co-founded - We The Independent - and stripped of his titles.

@Darth_Ozy This story is shocking! Even Will Ospreay has been accused and I was following him as well! Pete Dunn is the only British Wrestler I know that hasn't done anything at this time.

No...not Ospreay...if this is true, of course, I will stop following him but of course my heart will break.
I believe he has now deleted his page and I don't think he was accused of actual assault, but he's being accused of letting it happen and being there, which is still pretty bad.

Right, I remember the story. He and his girlfriend Bea got a girl blacklisted because she accused his best friend of sexual assault. I don't care, he is DISGUSTING.

I think you're right:

If this is true, then Bea is also to blame!
Also, it's not just women that are coming forward, it's also men as well.
We'll know more in the near future and who will be guilty 😞

It's not just UK, many Americans are coming out too.
For instance, Jim Cornette and his wife Stacey have been accused of luring wrestlers to sleep with Stacey in exchange of getting pushed and featured on OVW programming.
Other UK talents have also been accused- most notably David Starr, Ligero, Joe Coffey, even Jack Gallagher.

Another indie wrestler said someone signed with AEW tried to sexually assault her during 2013 Summerslam weekend.
And now, even Matt Riddle has been accused.

I'm sure there will be more names out. It's big.

Yeah although in his case it’s not sexual abuse but emotional abuse and gaslighting by the looks of it.
Tbh reading the Jimmy Havoc stories it seems like he really needs some help with mental health and substance abuse.

@Darth_Ozy OMG! Did he really just say that?
Yeah I saw this, pretty shocking and sick from Sammy Guevara here. And further exposes how much of a hypocrite Tony Khan is. He has no problem “banning” Hulk Hogan from AEW so he can virtue signal and win internet points but when he has actual problematic people like Sammy and Jake Hager on his roster, or even convicted rapist Mike Tyson, he’s completely silent.

btw in more news, it looks like Matt Riddle has a good chance of being innocent from all accounts I’ve read so that gives me slight relief. On the other hand Joey Ryan has been outed as a serial sex offender.

Yes, this is true! It's hypocritical.

Yeah, i heard that the woman who accused him is known to be a liar, so we'll just have to wait and see.
It wouldn't surprise me if Joey Ryan was at all tbh, the way he acts and says is just pathetic and I have never liked him.
