Ligero is reportedly gone from WWE.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, although it hasn’t been officially announced by the company, Ligero is the second talent to be released by WWE after the #SpeakingOut movement took over social media. Ligero was one of the several accused of abuse allegations. Several women wrestlers have spoke out against Ligero who did eventually issue several statements on Twitter.
“The current story that has been released by Violet O’Hara/Claire-Michelle Oldfield is neither accurate nor true,” Ligero stated on Twitter. “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.”
The second one issued did admit to some of the claims made against him.
“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,” Ligero admits.”
“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. 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.”
