WWE Issues Statement Over Allegations Of Sexual Harassment In Developmental

Former WWE NXT wrestlers Chase Donovan and Chad Baxter recently accused Bill Demott of bullying talents in developmental. They claimed on the "Two And A Half Wrestlers" podcast that Demott allegedly would hit talents on the back with a yardstick, use homophobic slurs, tell Divas not to report sexual harassment, amongst other allegations.

WWE sent us a statement noting that there have been no sexual harassment complaints against any employee at their training facility in Orlando. "Instead there have been baseless allegations made by disgruntled talent recently released by WWE," the statement read.

WWE also stated that they take these issues seriously and investigated the matter, "concluding that there was no wrongdoing."
