Nash Carter released by WWE following domestic abuse allegation

Carter and Wes Lee had recently won the NXT Tag Team Championships

Nash Carter has been released from WWE. 

As first reported by Sean Ross Sapp, the 27-year-old Carter has been let go following allegations of domestic abuse by his wife, Impact Wrestling's Kimber Lee. Photos of Lee with her lip split open, allegedly caused by Carter, were posted by her on Monday. 

Lee tagged the official NXT Twitter account in her tweet along with the caption, "Hey @WWENXT this is my face after your tag champ @NashCarterWWE got wasted and hit me so hard he split my lip open. He told me I’m a wrestler so I’m always marked up. I’ve hid this for a year and even forgave him. But I can’t hide it anymore."

"You all wanted the proof. There it is. I’m sorry I backed out but he was telling me lies all weekend to get me to not say anything," a follow-up tweet reads. 

On Tuesday, Lee posted a photo of Carter impersonating Adolf Hitler and giving a Nazi salute. She captioned the photo with, "Just another look into the kind of person @NashCartweWWE is….@WWENXT @WWE I’ve hid so much for so long because I was so mentally abused. Not to mention the countless anti LGBTQIA+ statements him and his family make….."

It's not clear when the picture was taken.

At the time he was released, Carter was one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions along with his MSK partner, Wes Lee. They defeated The Creed Brothers and former champions Imperium in a triple threat match to win the belts at NXT Stand & Deliver last Saturday.
