"WWE supports a culture of inclusion regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation, and we are committed to embracing all individuals as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.

Dylan Miley (aka Lars Sullivan) will be fined $100,000 and required to complete sensitivity training for offensive commentary uncovered from his past. WWE will also facilitate meetings for Dylan with community organizations to foster further discussion around the power of social media and the impact of your words."

Sullivan is in the middle of a heavy push by WWE, where he's been signed since late 2013. He spent five years working at the company's Performance Center before a December call-up to the main roster. However, he was off the road for several months while dealing with personal issues, and made his debut following WrestleMania.

Fightful has also reached out to Lars Sullivan for a response.
