Ring of Honor has released a statement about allegations made this week by former talent Taeler Hendrix, who claims her House of Truth stablemate Jay Lethal said she was taken off TV for not sleeping with him.
It all started on social media this week when Hendrix tweeted negative comments about Lethal. After a fan defended him … she wrote, “the dude your standing up for is the same dude that told me because I didn’t sleep with him they sabotaged me and took me off TV. that being the all mighty Jay.”
Hours later she followed it up with an additional statement:
“I know this is going to be on wrestling sites. My name is Taeler & this is my statement: attorneys on my behalf have an ongoing investigation. I know I’m not the only one & ppl that have known of this investigation have been supportive. I’ll continue to fight for what’s right.Let the hate roll in. Doesn’t change what happened. I came forward privately long ago & now it’s public. If I stay silent I’ll be part of the problem. I can’t live w/ that. I’ll fight for what’s right. Threatening me/supposed burned bridges changes nothing. Let the hate roll in.”
For those unfamiliar, Hendrix worked in ROH from 2015-2017 and was Lethal’s valet during his first run as World Champion. Jay recently regained the title at a TV taping.
A rep for ROH released a statement to PWTorch saying:
We were troubled to hear the allegations that surfaced last night on Twitter. We take these matters very seriously and will be investigating this situation thoroughly, reviewing all evidence related to the matter. Ring of Honor strives to provide an environment and workplace where male and female wrestlers are free from any misconduct or abuse. We will take appropriate action upon the conclusion of our findings.
Pro Wrestling Sheet reached out to Lethal for comment but have yet to hear back.
