Being The Elite posts statement regarding past episodes featuring Joey Ryan.
Ryan has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault and abuse, leading to him leaving social media and closing down Bar Wrestling. Ryan gained in popularity thanks to Being The Elite, the online show put together by The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Brandon Cutler, and more.
On Tuesday's episode of BTE, the crew posted the following statement:
Hi guys and girls. We hope this video provides an escape, or even maybe makes you laugh during these tough times. We love you all.
Out of respect to the victims, we have began the process of taking down BTE videos which featured an accused serial sexual abuser. Our biggest regret is providing a platform unknowingly to such a despicable person. Our hearts go out to the victims and anyone else affected.
- From the BTE Team
Being the Elite #109, which features the Joey Ryan memorial has already been removed along with episodes #82 and #83.
IMPACT Wrestling cut ties with Ryan on Monday night.
