Hallowicked has been one of the most recognizable names in CHIKARA for nearly two decades, but his time with the promotion has come to an end.
Though there have been no accusations of abuse, assault, or misconduct towards Hallowicked, CHIKARA promoter Mike Quackenbush has had multiple accusations against him and Hallowicked no longer feels comfortable being associated with the promotion.
He gave the following statement on social media:
Effective Immediatley I am resigning from CHIKARA and The Wrestle Factory. While I do not believe any of the allegations levied are against me personally, I can not in good conscience continue my association with the group.— Hallowicked (@Go2SleepyHollow) June 24, 2020
Hallowicked served as the assistant trainer at Wrestle Factory with Quackenbush serving as the head trainer.
Jakob Hammermeier has also resigned from CHIKARA and distanced himself from the Wrestle Factory name.
Effective immediately I tender my resignation to Chikara. The Wrestle Factory Carolina Dojo will return to being The Carolina Wrestling Academy. I do not condone any actions by the Philadelphia school and will no longer be associated with the brand.— COUNT KING WORLDSTAR (@jhammermeier) June 24, 2020
Frightmare also resigned from the promotion.
