Jordan Devlin accused of assault

In the fallout over United Kingdom independent wrestler David Starr having sexual assault allegations brought against him, numerous women have stepped forward to tell their stories, starting the #SpeakingOut movement on Twitter.

On Thursday, a woman named Hannah issued a tweet showcasing pictures of bruises on her lower body, noting that they were left by Jordan Devlin. She wrote in the tweet:

“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.”

Devlin is currently the NXT Cruiserweight Champion. He has not been able to perform for the company due to the travel restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Devlin lives in the United Kingdom.

WWE would later issue a statement on the allegations saying, “We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter.”
