NXT UK star Travis Banks has been released by WWE after admitting to having a relationship with a 17-year-old trainee in the past.

The news was first reported by POST Wrestling’s John Pollock and we’ve since confirmed the termination with sources.

Banks’ firing comes after wrestler Millie McKenzie accused Banks of being emotionally manipulative during a “secret one year relationship” when she was 17. Banks subsequently released a statement confirming they had a consensual relationship when she was a trainee of his and said he was sorry for any pain caused by it.

This is the third WWE termination in the wake of abuse allegations that came out in the #SpeakingOut movement. The first two were Jack Gallagher and Ligero.
