NWA has announced Vice President David Lagana is resigning from his position due to a claim of sexual assault by a female wrestler.

The National Wrestling Alliance tweeted

Pursuant to allegations made by pro wrestler Liz Savage on her Twitter account, 6/18/2020, NWA VP David Lagana has resigned his position, effective immediately. As well all production of NWA content is temporarily halted, pending a restructuring of executive management positions.

Savage shared her story on Twitter claiming the incident took place in 2010 while the two were living together as friends and sharing a bed, in a non-sexual way. One night, however, the wrestler claims she woke up with his hand down her pants while he was touching himself. 

Liz claims she pulled away and he stopped, then kicked her out of their apartment the same week.

Savage made her story known as part of an online movement of people in wrestling speaking out against those who have been sexually, emotionally or verbally abusive in the industry.

Lagana himself has yet to comment on the matter.
