Earlier this month, allegations surfaced that former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth had sent nude photos to an underaged girl. He immediately denied the accusations, and now he’s gone further into detail about the situation in a brand new statement. He says that his attorneys have found a witness that will testify on his behalf and that there is “concrete evidence” that supports his innocence. He also goes on to state that the ” messages from the account were fraudulently created without my knowledge or consent.”

Check out his full statement below:

Recently, allegations of misconduct have been lodged against me which I categorically deny. I never have, nor will I ever engage in any activity that could be deemed as inappropriate or disrespectful. My delay in publicly commenting on this situation was based on the advice of my legal team which has just completed a thorough investigation. My attorneys have pinpointed a trusted witness who is willing to testify on my behalf. In addition, they have uncovered concrete evidence that supports my innocence and proves that without a shadow of a doubt the social media accounts alleged to be mine are fake and the messages from the account were fraudulently created without my knowledge or consent. My only hope is to restore my reputation as I, along with my family, friends and supporters have suffered because of a social media stunt devised to end my professional wrestling career. My team and I are prepared to pursue legal action against any party that persists with the promotion of these lies.
