The Wrestling Community was shaken by disbelief after allegations against James Ellsworth surfaced where he allegedly sent nude pictures to a 16-year old girl.
While the former WWE wrestler has gone onto deny the incident, it has caused him way too much harm with his reputation being hit to an all-time low.
James Ellsworth a statement clarifying his silence on the matter till now and has claimed to take legal action against any party that “persists with the promotion of these lies.”. Here’s the statement in full:
“Recently, allegations of misconduct have been lodged against me which I categorically deny. I never have, nor will I ever engage in any activity that could be deemed as inappropriate or disrespectful. My delay in publicly commenting on this situation was based on the advice of my legal team which has just completed a thorough investigation. My attorneys have pinpointed a trusted witness who is willing to testify on my behalf. In addition, they have uncovered concrete evidence that supports my innocence and proves that without a shadow of a doubt the social media accounts alleged to be mine are fake and the messages from the account were fraudulently created without my knowledge or consent. My only hope is to restore my reputation as I, along with my family, friends and supporters have suffered because of a social media stunt devised to end my professional wrestling career. My team and I are prepared to pursue legal action against any party that persists with the promotion of these lies.”
