Yesterday we reported on Taeler Hendrix‘s allegations against current Ring of Honor champion Jay Lethal. She claims he made sexual advances toward her and upon her refusal her ROH career was sabotaged.
ROH has released a statement to PWTorch about the matter and the company will be following up with an investigation. The statement says, “We were troubled to hear the allegations that surfaced last night on Twitter. We take these matters very seriously and will be investigating this situation thoroughly, reviewing all evidence related to the matter. Ring of Honor strives to provide an environment and workplace where male and female wrestlers are free from any misconduct or abuse. We will take appropriate action upon the conclusion of our findings.”
Taeler Hendrix worked for ROH in 2011 and once again from 2015-2017. Hendrix announced her ROH departure on April 4, 2017, and she has been working various Indie promotions since.
Since coming forward with the allegations she’s been receiving tons of backlash. She had this to say on twitter:
