Gallagher was alleged to have assaulted a woman at a party in 2014 after she refused his advances. After asking the woman to sit on his lap, Gallagher continued to harass her at the social event, reportedly going so far as to intrude on the accuser in the restroom and tear at her clothing. Gallagher has claimed that he has no recollection of these events but has issued an apology for them.

“Individuals are responsible for their own personal actions. WWE has zero-tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended,” the statement read.

Apart from Gallagher, Matt Riddle WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin have been called out by their names.

A woman had earlier accused Gallagher of tearing her skirt after she refused to sit on his lap. The woman said that she spent years downplaying the story to keep it under the carpet.

“I never thought this is something I would say publicly, but I want others to know that they never need to be ashamed and should feel like they can tell their stories,” said a woman named Becky on Twitter before recounting the incident.
