WWE releases two NXT UK stars Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/26/2020 at 01:08 PM
PWInsider.com is reporting that Ligero has been released by WWE. Ligero's profile on WWE.com has been deleted and he was not moved to the Alumni section.
Accusations were made towards Ligero as part of the #SpeakingOut movement which Ligero addressed on Twitter prior to disabling his account.
Ligero had denied one accusation but then wrote the following:
"Regarding the other statements from people like Laura, Natalie who have spoken out about the way they were made to feel, and others that have come forward about unwanted messages, I have no excuse. Itís inappropriate, itís an embarrassment and itís an absolute shameful way to act from someone in a position of trust. I sincerely apologise for my actions and any hurt Iíve caused."
John Pollock of PostWrestling.com is reporting that Travis Banks has also been released.
Me or be near me in public incase anyone would find out. Cheated on me multiple times in-front of my face, and was horrible to me.
Had a massive effect on my mental health and self confidence. I hated wrestling and the person I became when I was with him. #speakingout
