WWE released a media statement amid allegations of abuse against Jordan Devlin by a woman named Hannah Francesca on social media. Devlin is one of many wrestlers released on social media today during a spate of victims sharing their stories about industry figures. The full WWE statement is reproduced below:
We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and consider the matter.
Jordan Devlin is the current holder of the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, although he is quarantined in Europe and unable to attend current WWE television recordings. WWE recently crowned Santos Escobar as acting champion on NXT with a round robin, and it is likely that he would become a permanent champion if Devlin were to face consequences in the business.
