AEW issues statement on Jimmy Havoc allegations


AEW has released a statement saying they will evaluate Jimmy Havoc's status with the company as he undergoes treatment following allegations of rape and assault.

The company released the following statement:

We wish Jimmy Havoc all the best as he receives treatment and counseling in an effort to overcome the mental health and substance abuse challenges in his life. We are aware of various reports related to Jimmy. We are evaluating his status with our company and will address it when he has successfully completed his rehabilitation.

A woman who had a previous relationship with Havoc wrote regarding her experiences with Havoc, detailing a verbally abusive relationship from an unstable Havoc. She followed with another story detailing a rape allegation from another woman, who wrote that Havoc raped her after repeatedly saying no while both shared a bed.

An assault allegation came from a man who said that Havoc punched him in the face after a PROGRESS Wrestling event. 

In recent days, people who have experienced assault and abuse from those in professional wrestling have used the hashtag #SpeakingOut to tell their stories on Twitter. Promotions have either cut ties or launched investigations in the wake of these allegations.
