WWE has issued a statement to news outlets amidst allegations of abuse levied against Jordan Devlin by a woman named Hannah Francesca on social media. Devlin is one of several wrestlers outed on social media today in a wave of victims sharing their stories about prominent figures in the industry. WWE’s full statement is reproduced below:
We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter.
Jordan Devlin is the current holder of the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, although he is quarantined in Europe and unable to attend WWE’s current TV tapings. WWE crowned Santos Escobar as the Interim Champion recently on NXT with a round-robin tournament, and it’s likely that he would become permanent champion should Devlin face consequences in the company.
