PROGRESS Wrestling announced Jordan Devlin and Travis Banks have been suspended indefinitely due to allegations made against both wrestlers.
According to a statement on the company’s website, wrestler Scotty Davis has been suspended as well. The promotion also says they will no longer work with David Starr or Marc ‘Paz’ Parry.
Regarding Devlin, a woman shared photos of her bruised body and alleged the bruises came from Jordan. As for Banks, who wrestles in NXT UK with Devlin, wrestler Millie McKenzie said she had a “secret one year relationship” with him when she was 17 and that he was emotionally manipulative during that time.
The two women both made these stories 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.
“We take these allegations extremely seriously. Those under suspension will have their situation reviewed periodically between now, and events starting again,” the statement from PROGRESS noted. “We continue to monitor and listen to the Speaking Out movement so that we can take appropriate action where necessary.”
WWE says they are investigating the matter with Devlin, as well as with other wrestlers in the company who have had allegations made about them.
