• Wrestler Released By WWE After Accusations Of Sexual Harassment

WWE 205 Live wrestler ‘Gentleman’ Jack Gallagher has been released by WWE after he was accused of sexually harassing a girl.

Below is what WWE posted about it:

“WWE has come to terms on the release of Jack Gallagher (Jack Claffey).”

For those who don’t know, a woman named Becky accused Jack of forcing himself on her. Below is what she posted:

“I never thought this is something I would say publicly, but I want others to know that they never need to be ashamed and should feel like they can tell their stories.

On New Years Eve of 2014 I attended a house party, and Jack Gallagher (Gentleman Jack) was there. Jack got me drunk. While I acknowledge that I am an adult and can make my own decisions, he was literally pouring straight spirits into my glass, putting it to my mouth and telling me to drink. When I would make myself a drink he would add more alcohol when my glass was unattended. I thought I was in a safe environment and didn’t need to shield my glass.

Jack asked me to sit on his lap, I said no. He then sat on my lap, and made advances. The entire time I expressed that I was uncomfortable, but I also didn’t want to make a scene. In hindsight I should have.

At the end of the evening I went to the bathroom, and Jack barged into the room. I immediately stood up and tried to pull my skirt down. Jack grabbed me, and he pulled at my skirt. He pulled so hard he ripped my skirt. I managed to push him away and I left the room, I then immediately left the party. I spent years afterwards downplaying the story, trying to not cause any issues. I’m not going to be silent any longer.”
