Ligero released by WWE after #SpeakingOut allegations
It has been announced that NXT UK superstar Ligero has been released by WWE after numerous #SpeakingOut allegations of misconduct were stated on Social Media over the last week.
The British WWE superstar’s future with WWE had been in doubt after UK independent wrestler Natalie Sykes made accusations of sexual harassment against Ligero on Social Media.
Ligero had previously released a statement denying the accusations against him:
“The current story that has been released by Violet O’Hara/Claire-Michelle Oldfield is neither accurate nor true. This is a completely false allegation and whilst I’ve done other things in my life that I deeply regret, this isn’t an accurate or truthful portrayal of events. This is something I strongly deny and is something I’ve been in the process of speaking to a legal team about.
“Regarding the other statements from people like Laura, Natalie who have spoken out about the way they were made to feel, and others that have come forward about unwanted messages, I have no excuse. It’s inappropriate, it’s an embarrassment and it’s an absolute shameful way to act from someone in a position of trust. I sincerely apologise for my actions and any hurt I’ve caused. This is something I strongly deny and is something I’ve been in the process of speaking to a legal team about. I have no justification of my actions in the slightest. In these situations, I have failed people as a friend, as a fiancée and as a decent human being.”Ligero Twitter
Ligero’s WWE.com official profile has been removed from the website. He also removed his official Twitter account earlier this week.
