Insane Championship Wrestling has commented on the dozens of sexual misconduct allegations.
British Wrestling has taken a big hit over the past few days as multiple women have come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct, assault, and abuse. ICW has seen the allegations and released the following statement on the matter, though names of accused talent were not mentioned:
Over the past few days, serious allegations have been brought to our attention regarding individuals within the professional wrestling industry, some of whom have been associated with ICW.
The safety of our fans, performers and crew is paramount.
We have taken time to carefully investigate the situation, speak with members of our roster, in particular our female roster members, and to decide on a course of action.
We will strive to ensure a fair and safe work environment for all, and review any allegations of misconduct on a case-by-case basis, as we always have done. We have and will sever ties with an individual who poses a threat to that environment.
We have also created two new roles of the Talent Welfare Officers and will be appointing male and female roster members to those positions. In addition we're going to put a selection of 16 staff and roster members through a Positive Mental Health Scotland course to become qualified Mental Health First Aiders.
