New details concerning the departure of Brad Stutts from CWF Mid-Atlantic have emerged.
Bruce Mitchell from Pro Wrestling Torch put out a report tonight that covered the story in detail. Stutts was fired from the promotion January 6 by co-owner Jeff Rudd due to both inappropriate behavior and his relationship with Charlie Hartman and his company Gimmick Tree Entertainment, who has a past that CWF Mid-Atlantic were never made aware of until recently.
The inappropriate behavior stems from him asking a CWF employee if she would engage in sexual activity for money, which she turned down.The report also made mention of rumors that Hartman may have been recruiting other women by going to sites like Backpage.com and strip clubs.
CWF officials also became concerned when they obtained a copy of Hartman's criminal record where it was revealed that the 34-year-old has been in and out of jail since he was 19 years old on a slew of charges including fraud, assault, organized fraud, identity theft, burglary and other outstanding warrants. At one point, he was sentenced to seven years in jail, serving four. With both this action and Hartman's past, CWF officials were worried that Stutts' association with Hartman could harm them and their own reputations if he were to get in trouble.
The report says that Stutts has decided to take a step away from pro wrestling and will devote himself to his marriage and his family for the time being.
