joey ryan dave crist terminated impact wrestling michael elgin suspended

Following multiple allegations shared on social media over the past few days, Impact Wrestling has taken action against three of their wrestlers.

The company released a statement on Monday saying:

“IMPACT Wrestling confirms that it has terminated its contracts with Dave Crist and Joey Ryan, effective immediately. In addition, it has suspended Michael Elgin pending further review of allegations of misconduct.”

As we previously reported, Ryan has been accused of numerous acts of sexual abuse and harassment since the #SpeakingOut movement began. An anonymous female wrestler said he once sexually assaulted her after a show. A former girlfriend alleged Ryan choked her and was verbally abusive. Wrestler Rok-C says Ryan began a flirting with her when she was just 17 years old. And more stories have since come to light.

Crist has been accused of multiple accounts of sexual assault and misconduct. This includes a claim from an ex-girlfriend who claimed he had been abusive and sexually assaulted her more than once.

Elgin has been accused of sending unwanted nude photos to women, among other old incidents.

  1. Why haven’t these SOB’s been charged and arrested?

  2. This is bullshit. All these girls do is cry rape. Attention seeking bs

  3. I agree 100% dwil, plus the most that these guys have done, is be pervy, sleazy and probably used them for sex. Not a crime lol. These women need to shut up and stop spreading attention seeking bs. When there are genuine evil abusers out there who get away with it.

    You guys really think that ALL of these accusations are made up? God damn are people fucking stupid. YES, I have no doubt that there may be SOME claims that are false against people. I have no doubt in my mind that this piece of shit Joey Ryan did do everything he is being accused of however. How naive are you people though? It’s SO unfortunately common for women to be taken advantage of and not ever speak about it because of embarrassment and fear (you people are a perfect example) of not being believed due to the people that committed the crimes being famous. I have had the misfortune of knowing multiple girls that have had shit happen to them. My ex was in the military and was raped multiple times but of course nothing was ever done. Another ex of mine was sexually assaulted and taken advantage of when drunk at a party a few years before we got together. People need to shut the fuck up when it comes to their opinions on girls “lying” to get attention. Like I said, there is a small percentage I do believe, like anything, may be exaggerating but the greater majority are true stories being told. To have assholes throw out claims of them lying only makes it that much worse. So once again, how about you people shut the fuck up?

  5. Joey Ryan put it in my butt once. Honest. Seriously. See, it’s now in print, so it MUST be true!
