We don't condone any sort of inappropriate behavior.
British Wrestling Revolution put out the following statement:
British Wrestling Revolution has a reputation with fans and workers alike as a professional organisation. Our company is built on the back of strong women both in the ring and outside of it.
We believe it is our duty to stand with and show our support to all those who have spoken out against the systemic sexual harassment and abuse that has seemingly plagued the British Wrestling scene.
No longer will the perpetrators be protected, no longer will victims be ignored, no longer will these crimes go unpunished.
We pledge to continue to uphold our Zero Tolerance policy against this type of behavior.
We will continue to monitor the situation and take appropriate action against any current roster member or staff member found to be contravening our ethos.
The company also announced they had severed ties with a roster member weeks ago "due to an accusation of inappropriate behaviour."
The name was not published out of respect for the victim.
Off the back of this, we'd like to announce that a roster member was removed weeks ago due to an accusation of inappropriate behaviour, we commit to never working with the individual again. Their name will remain anonymous out of respect to the wishes of the victim.#SpeakingOut https://t.co/EzYuhIHuFd— British Wrestling Revolution (@BWR_UK) June 19, 2020
Fightful will continue to update fans on the story as more is known.
