After being booked against two wrestlers who were accused during the #SpeakingOut movement, Lince Dorado has asked The Crash Lucha Libre to remove him from their May show or change his match.
The Crash announced on Wednesday that Dorado & Destiny would be facing Marty Scurll & Travis Banks at their show in Tijuana, Mexico on Friday, May 13. But Dorado tweeted on Thursday that he's asked The Crash to remove him from the event or change his match. Dorado noted that The Crash is working on it.
"I have asked @TheCrashLuchas to remove me from the show or change my match for their May event," Dorado wrote. "Nothing else needs to be said. It’s my decision as I’m not influenced by anybody! They are working on it."
Banks (real name Travis Bligh) was released by WWE in June 2020 after Millie McKenzie accused him of being in a mentally and emotionally abusive relationship with her when she was a 17-year-old trainee. Banks is 13 years older than McKenzie.
ROH announced in January 2021 that they and Scurll had "mutually decided to part ways." In June 2020, a woman accused Scurll of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 years old in 2015. Scurll claimed that the encounter was consensual and that he wasn't aware of her age at the time. Following the start of the #SpeakingOut movement, ROH announced that it had opened an investigation into its wrestlers who were accused.
