AEW Issues Statement On Jimmy Havoc Allegations
Stemming from several different claims against him...
After accusations were levied toward All Elite Wrestling performer Jimmy Havoc over the preceding days, the promotion has announced that the veteran wrestler will enter into a rehabilitation program, and that his employment status is being evaluated.
AEW wrote on Friday, "We wish Jimmy Havoc all the best as he receives treatment and counseling in an effort to overcome the mental health and substance abuse challenges in his life. We are aware of various reports related to Jimmy. We are evaluating his status with our company and will address it when he has successfully completed his rehabilitation."
A woman that had been in an earlier relationship with Havoc came forward with claims of verbal abuse. She also detailed a rape allegation involving Havoc and another woman. In addition, a male made an assault allegation against Havoc, claiming the wrestler punched him in the face following a PROGRESS event.
Havoc was one of the first signees of AEW in early 2019. In recent months, he's been part of a regular tag team with Kip Sabian, known together as the Superbad Squad.
