Two NXT UK Superstars – Travis Banks and Ligero – have both been released by WWE according to John Pollock of POST Wrestling. The two were part of the many wrestlers in the United Kingdom who were accused for sexual abuse and inappropriate behavior.
While not commenting much publicly, WWE has been investigating all the stories concerning their talent and had already fired Jack Gallagher last week.
Apart from the sexual abuse, both Banks and Ligero committed the acts on 17-year-olds at the time and when both were serving as their trainers.
Banks and Ligero “apologized” for their actions but Ligero’s reply sparked outrage from fellow NXT UK stars Kay Lee Ray and Amir Jordan, who spilled the beans on what kind of a man he really is, calling him a manipulative liar.
