Earlier today, WWE superstar Matt Riddle became the latest professional
wrestler to be accused of sexual abuse.
In these claims, Candy Cartwright alleged that Riddle choked
her and threatened to make her have sex with him back in May 2018. Cartwright
claims that she performed oral sex on Riddle in order to “get out of having intercourse
WWE has now moved to make a public statement on these claims,
releasing the exact same “We take any allegation of this nature very seriously
and are looking into he matter” line that they put out earlier in the day when allegations
were made against Jordan Devlin.
Riddle had been due to make his SmackDown debut on tonight’s
outing for WWE’s blue brand, although any mention of Riddle have been pulled
from the preview for tonight’s SmackDown – with this throwing up questions as
to whether WWE has opted to pull Riddle’s already-taped SmackDown bow.
This has been a dark few days for the wrestling business,
with so many brave people coming forward to share their own personal stories of
abuse suffered at the hands of an ever-increasing amount of wrestling
For those who have endured such horrendous abuse, the
wrestling community as a whole is showing great support and love. And for those
who have carried out any of these awful acts, we can all only hope that the
relevant repercussions occur.
