WWE Releases Travis Banks, Ligero

Two NXT UK performers are gone...

Two NXT UK talents have been released from the company, in the wake of allegations made against each in the Speaking Out movement.

WWE performers Ligero and Travis Banks have both been released from the company. Ligero's release was confirmed by PWInsider, while Banks' by POST Wrestling. Neither release has been reported by WWE themselves, though each man's profile has been removed from the roster section on the company website.

Ligero tweeted responses last week in light of the allegations against him. Though he expressed remorse for, "...fail(ing) people as a friend, as a fiancée and as a decent human being," he denied the allegations made by wrestler Violet O'Hara. Ligero has since deleted his Twitter account.

Banks was accused by Millie McKenzie of being in a mentally and emotionally abusive relationship with her when she was a 17-year-old trainee.

Ligero and Banks are the second and third wrestlers to depart WWE in light of accusations made during the Speaking Out movement. NXT and 205 Live regular Jack Gallagher was released one week ago, following allegations made against him.
