WWE Issues Updated Statement on Sexual Misconduct Allegations


As you all now by now, numerous wrestlers have been accused of sexual, physical, and mental abuse as part of the #SpeakingOut movement on Twitter. One of those names is WWE Superstar Matt Riddle, who was scheduled to debut on tonight’s WWE SmackDown broadcast. As of this writing, there is no word on if that will still be happening.

WWE has now issued an updated statement on the allegations, saying,

“Individuals are responsible for their own personal actions. WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated. WWE’s ability to fine, suspend or terminate a WWE talent will not be, however, limited or compromised in any manner in the event incontrovertible evidence of such illegal misconduct is presented to WWE.”
