WWE Releases Jack Gallagher
Following allegations made over the previous day...
WWE announced on Friday evening that they released Jack Gallagher from the company, simply writing in their notice, "WWE has come to terms on the release of Jack Gallagher (Jack Claffey)."
A story surfaced over the previous day from a woman calling herself Becky, alleging misconduct on Gallagher's part at a New Year's Eve party in 2014. According to her claims, Gallagher tried to get her drunk, had his continued advances rejected, and ripped her skirt down before she was able to leave.
The accuser also tweeted a conversation between Gallagher and the homeowner, where he claimed to have had no recollection of the event, but wanted to apologize.
Gallagher spent the last four years wrestling for WWE, beginning with his qualification into the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016. Much of his tenure with the promotion came on the show 205 Live.
WWE issued a zero tolerance statement on Friday in regards to the numerous accusations that have come out against various wrestlers, some of whom are presently contracted to WWE, including Matt Riddle, El Ligero, and NXT Cruiserweight champion Jordan Devlin.
