The Speaking Out movement has affected wrestling promotions big and small.
One name that was outed as an offender via the movement was Dave Crist formerly of IMPACT Wrestling. Rockstar Pro Wrestling, a promotion that used to feature a training school run by Dave, has now released a new code of conduct in the wake of the numerous allegations in the wrestling industry.
The code of conduct will feature a three-strikes rule and is strong against intolerance of all kinds as well as sexual abuse and harassment.
Rockstar Pro Wrestling - CODE OF CONDUCT
Rockstar Pro, under zero circumstances, condones the following behavior: racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexual abuse or harassment, ableism, or discrimination towards anyone that is gender non-conforming. Any activity that encompasses the types of behavior listed above, whether wrestler to wrestler, fan to wrestler, wrestler to fan, or fan to fan interactions, will result as an offense.
Strike 1: Warning. You will be reminded of our official Code of Conduct & your offense will be recorded in our records.
Strike 2: You will be subject to removal from the event. Your offense will be recorded & your status of attending shows will be reviewed. No refund will be issued if you're removed during an event.
Strike 3: Immediate removal from the event as well as a lifetime ban from all Rockstar Pro events.
QUESTIONS & REPORTING: During events, Rockstar Pro management may not be readily available to answer questions, however, any & all questions may be brought to the designated security for that event, as well as the staff working the door or bar of the event. Rockstar Pro staff/security are always visible at events with either Rockstar Pro or Turnbuckles STAFF or SECURITY uniforms. Staff will immediately contact management for answers to questions that they may not be able to answer. You can send questions/reports anytime after events by contacting any Rockstar Pro social media account or emailing RockstarProWrestling[at]gmail.com.
Rockstar Pro is unable to oversee the actions of our roster, staff, and crew outside of events. We take pride in the individuals we work with but we cannot control their actions on their own time. If any member of the Rockstar Pro roster, staff, or crew is involved in any action that would violate the Code of Conduct, please bring it to our attention so we can look into it. The individual(s) in question will be dealt with accordingly depending on the findings of their actions.
Rockstar Pro has & always will be a party, we just want to make sure the party is safe for all that are attending.
