Independent wrestler Millie McKenzie claimed she had a secret relationship with Banks when she was 17 and that he would cheat on her and "be horrible." She says the relationship had an effect on her mental health and self-confidence. She also claimed, "There was one occasion where he found out which hotel I was in, then found my room and stood outside my hotel door knocking for hours while I continuously messaged him to leave."

She also posted messages from Banks showing the alleged mental abuse. 

Banks posted the following statement on June 20:

I'd like to issue a statement regarding Millie McKenzie's comments:

Millie was a trainee of mine at Fight Club: Pro. She was also a close personal friend. We would be at shows together, attend the same social events, travel together and hang out at the wrestlers house where I was living. It was through this friendship a consensual relationship was formed.

The relationship broke down between both parties and it ended. After it ended we agreed to talk it out. We apologized to each other for any individual actions behind the relationship breakdown. After seeing these comments, I can only repeat my apology. I am truly sorry for any pain caused by the relationship.

WWE has previously released El Ligero and Jack Gallagher amid allegations during the Speaking Out movement. 

PROGRESS had already cut ties with Banks following the accusations. 

Fightful will continue to update fans on the story as more is known.
