Ah ok. Thanks for the heads up.

The irony of course being Paige used a very similar racial slur in the original documentary but nobody talks about that....

There's pattern of selective memory emerging for certain and I should probably leave it at that.

Taken from the observer website:

While their mandatory conference call ended up being a reminder of company policy, WWE did take action against several additional UK talents Tuesday, a follow up to the Friday releases of Ligero (Simon Musk) and Travis Banks (Travis Bligh).

The company confirmed that referees Joel Allen and Chris Roberts were released while Joe Coffey has been suspended, all due to allegations from #SpeakingOut.

As far as the conference call with UK talent, it was largely Paul Levesque telling them explicitly what the protocol was regarding sexual abuse allegations. He said that there would be zero tolerance on any charges, provided there was irrefutable evidence to the charges.

It was taken as more of a warning going forward than anything else, but there was no talk regarding any other changes with the UK brand which will continue to tape television as soon as it is once again feasible to do so in that market.

I wonder what the criteria for a suspension for Coffey, rather than being fired is. Seems odd that he's the only one that wasn't sacked off. Was he accused of something less serious?

He may have stated he had an alibi that was convincing enough that they decided an investigation was warranted so they could not be sued for wrongful dismissal, or something similar.

Apparently, once charged they are suspended indefinitely pending the outcome.

Ligero, Banks, Allen and Roberts were charged?

WWE also said "OR" if they have sufficient evidence. Such as filming yourself asking a fan to bring their "slutty friends" for a "hot wet lay". 

In other words and arrest is auto suspension / firing, but WWE still have a right to kick you out if there is video / photos of you being a dingus.

Did she use it as a pejorative? If not, perhaps that's why nobody talks about it.

There's been some tweets going around that apparently that the parents of El Ligero have been telling his former fiancé to be quiet about their son. Ex fiancé new boyfriend taking exception to it cue more negative tweets about Ligero.

Aww, maybe we should all list our favourite wrestling memories to help cheer him up?

I cant get over the fact that these idiots likely spent their entire lives dreaming of being involved in the wrestling business only to totally botch it by being massive pervs.

I see NJPW foolishly thought now would be a good time to start an #AskZSJ hashtag on twitter. You can probably imagine what the questions are like.
