WWE Issues a New Statement Saying They Have Zero Tolerance for Sexual Assault


-- In response to rampant accusations of sexual assault and abuse for multiple superstars under contract, WWE issued the following more detailed zero-tolerance statement, noting that they would suspend and possibly terminate any talent who is arrested or convicted of any sort of misconduct involving child abuse, sexual assault or domestic violence. The wording of their statement calls into questions the specific case around Jack Gallagher, who was released from his contract earlier this evening.

"Individuals are responsible for their own personal actions. WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated. WWE’s ability to fine, suspend or terminate a WWE talent will not be, however, limited or compromised in any manner in the event incontrovertible evidence of such illegal misconduct is presented to WWE.”
