There have been multiple wrestlers who work for WWE who have had allegations of misconduct levied against them in the #SpeakingOut movement. In response, the company has released the following statement:

“Individuals are responsible for their own personal actions. WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated. WWE’s ability to fine, suspend or terminate a WWE talent will not be, however, limited or compromised in any manner in the event incontrovertible evidence of such illegal misconduct is presented to WWE.”

WWE had previously released a statement saying they were “looking into the matter” regarding allegations against current SmackDown star Matt Riddle.
