According to the latest news surfaced online, a woman named Hannah Francesca allegedly accused current NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin of abusing her. These accusations would come via tweets which were then promptly canceled by the accuser.
In the long tweets posted by the girl, in fact, until a few hours ago it was read how the most difficult part of these questions would be the complaint because men would have a "men's club mentality" that would tend to exclude certain truths.
WWE issues statement on Jordan Devlin accusations
Francesca commented on the abuse, saying: “This is scary. I'm really scared. Jordan Devlin did this to me. And this is just the physical damage. Not including my arse and back bruises...because I don't fancy posting that online [woman shrugging emoji]”.
Additional comments from Francesca, captioning her now-protected tweets, read: “To the promotions, wrestlers and fans staying silent. I hear you. To the abusers tweeting their support. I see you”. “I was also told to reach out to my abuser as the whole thing might just be a ‘misunderstanding’ ??????? Promoters.....educate yourself.
Don't gaslight your fans or talent”. WWE issued the following statement on the allegations against Jordan Devlin and several other WWE NXT: UK wrestlers: “We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter”.
The movement came less than 24 hours after David Starr was stripped of OTT, Revolution Pro Wrestling and TNT Extreme Wrestling championships following his own response to s****l misconduct allegations that admitted to inappropriate behaviour.
It was started by retired professional wrestler Sierra Loxton, who had shared her own story earlier that day. Beginning when he was 12 years old, Jordan Devlin was trained to be a professional wrestler by Fergal Devitt (also known as Finn Bálor) and Paul Tracey.
At the age of 21, Devlin spent six months wrestling in Japan. Jordan Devlin is the inaugural Over The Top Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion, having defeated Mark Haskins in December 2017. He was defeated by WALTER for the title on August 18, 2018.
In 2017, Devlin joined Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW), where he wrestled Trent Seven for the ICW World Heavyweight Championship. Devlin lost the match and later had to have staples in the back of his head to close a wound sustained in the match.
Devlin is currently one-half of the Progress Tag Team Champions alongside Scotty Davis after defeating Grizzled Young Veterans and Aussie Open at Chapter 95: Still Chasing.
