Jordan Devlin, El Ligero, Matt Riddle's Lawyer Release Staments On Sexual Abuse Allegations

WWE superstars accused of sexual abuse have given their statements regarding their respective accusations. 

Matt Riddle, who was accused of sexual abuse by wrestler Candy Cartwright, issued the following statement through his lawyer Daniel J. Rose. 

Three Matches Announced For 4/27 WWE NXT

The allegations by this independent female performer are completely false and another attempt to harass and humiliate Mr. and Mrs. Riddle to try and tarnish their reputation in the community. 

We have been aware for the last two years of this performer stalking the Riddle family.

In 2019, our firm had draft a pleading against this performer to seek an injunction for cyberstalking in the Circuit Court for Orange County, Florida.

Cartwright claims, "Back in May of 2018 I was riding with Matt Riddle and a few other wrestlers. During the van ride, when the 3 other wrestlers had fallen asleep, Matt asked me to 'hop on his dick.' When I refused (although we had previously been together I was incredibly uncomfortable in that setting ) When I said no, he grabbed me by my throat, choked me and said “what if I just made you?” I ended up giving him oral sex (praying someone wouldn’t wake up) to get out of having intercourse with him. It was incredibly humiliating. It is never ok to put your hands on a woman, it’s also not ok to not listen when she says no."

Jordan Devlin, who accused of abuse by a woman named Hannah, posted the following statement on social media:

Hannah tweeted pictures showing bruises on her body alleging that it was Devlin who did this to her. In one of her tweets talking about Devlin, Hannah said "This is scary. I'm really scared. Jordan Devlin did this to me. And this is just the physical damage." The tweets have since been deleted. 

El Ligero, who was accused of sexual assault by Violet O'Hara, posted the following statement:

O'Hara claims Ligero acted as a "white knight" in saving her from a bad scene at a bar. Following the incident, Ligero and a group of friends were allowed to stay at O'Hara's hotel as they needed a place to crash. O'Hara claimed that Ligero said he could not sleep on the floor, she agreed to allow him in her room as long as he stayed on the opposite side, and was then indecently assaulted by Ligero. 

Ligero also addressed allegations made by other women regarding his behavior. 

Multiple women accused Ligero of requesting photographs or making sexual comments despite them being underage.

WWE issued a statement saying they have a zero-tolerance policy and any arrest would lead to a suspension while a conviction would lead to termination.
