Anthem Sports Releases Statement on Allegations Against Impact Wrestling Wrestlers


-- Anthem Sports, the parent company for Impact Wrestling, released the following statement in regards to sexual abuse allegations against three of their contracted talents - Joey Ryan, Michael Elgin and Dave Crist.

"It is a core value of the Anthem organization that we conduct our business with respect and integrity, providing a safe and secure work environment for our employees and performers. We are following carefully the various allegations being made through social media, and are reviewing all incidents involving Impact Wrestling talent and personnel to determine an appropriate course of action."

-- Ryan is being accused by a wrestler named Corinne Mink who says that after she picked him up at the airport, he proceeded to grope and kiss her before attempting to get her into his hotel room. She reported the incident to the promoter of the event who apologized for the incident and said he would never book Ryan again. However, a year-and-a-half later, he ended up going against his word.

-- Another female wrestler, Kaitlin Diemond, tweeted that Michael Elgin sent her inappropriate photos, emails and messages back in 2016 under a fake name. You can read her message here.

-- Crist is being accused of sending unsolicited inappropriate photos by wrestler Ziggy Haim while also saying that he had feelings for her despite having a girlfriend. When she tried to report the incident, she was ignored because of her age (20) and also because people chalked it up that Crist sent pics like that to everyone. Those tweets can be read here.
