According to The Wrestling Observer, Ring of Honor referee and ring crew member Kevin Keenan was fired this past weekend after allegedly making advances at a female member of the roster.
The report notes that the night before ROH’s event in Nashville, some of the wrestlers, crew and staff went out to a restaurant. It was during this social outing that Keenan began making “sexual” advances towards an unnamed female member of the ROH roster, and his actions included spanking her rear end. The female employee was visibly uncomfortable with Keenan’s actions, and was subsequently told by other ROH roster members that his behavior was unacceptable. Keenan then left the establishment.
The next day, after ROH officials were informed of the incident, ROH booker Hunter Johnston, aka Delirious, reprimanded Keenan in front of the entire locker room, told him his behavior was unacceptable, and then told him to gather his belongings, leave, and not come back.
The Observer notes ROH will not be using Keenan going forward.
Yesterday, WZ was sent the following email recount of the incident by a fellow, anonymous Ring of Honor employee:
