    Devlin should have done what Riddle did and say nothing himself and let is lawyers speak for him.

    Riddle is the one DMing special cases on twitter in earnest. Cant exactly say he's played this stellar so far.

    I imagine that was pre-prepared by a solicitor and then he tweeted it out. He says he's consulting his legal team in the last tweet.

    Only here because I saw a tweet from @karolinecelly where that comedian linked to Galway has come up again—apparently 'liking' the David Starr story while being an abusive perv himself.

    Yup, absolute scumbag who was once heralded as brave after coming forward as one of Al Porter's abuse victims

    Has there been a re immergence of allegations in the Irish comedy scene ?

    Velveteen Dream the latest to be mentioned as part of all this. There's more stuff under the original tweet.

    From what I can see, three new accusers have come forward against Dream (in addition to the one from a few weeks ago). He has now deleted all social media.

    Wwe have confirmed a Jack Gallagher’s release. Seems he admitted to some of the accusations, and even reached out to one victim to apologize. Hence being the first one sacked.

    Load of accusations aimed at Russell Dempster

    Sorry I probably should have elaborated. He'd be an OTT Contender guy so fairly unknown.

    Jack Gallagher had a match against Jake Atlas on last night's 205 Live.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,538 ✭✭✭bennyl10


    Dream is finished, there can’t any coming back from that

    The culture of adults befriending, chatting to or worse teenagers has got to end. Travis Banks seemed to have absolutely no awareness as to how absolutely weird it would be considered in any walk of life other than wrestling.

    Drake.

    It's not just wrestling, it's everywhere and it's minging.

    Will Ospreay has apologised (if you can call it that, it reads more like a "Look how great I am" tweet) to a wrestler named Pollyanna for attacking her character/belittling her accusation after Ospreay's friend sexually assaulted her a few years ago...

    https://twitter.com/WillOspreay/status/1274291345855852544

    She isn't having any of it...

    https://twitter.com/GothicLolly/status/1274310431587405825

    Anything I've ever read about Ospreay makes him seem like a thundering prick.

    Various former OVW wrestlers accusing Cornette and his wife Stacey of being swingers, and using their position of power in the company to coerce young talent into relations with them. Kenny Bolin (friend of Cornettes for 43 years until a recent falling out) and his son discuss here: https://youtu.be/7pMN4Z-eEOk


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,516 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Cornette and his Wife being swingers etc has been pretty much wrestling world knowledge for as long as I remember.

    Has it ? It's the first I've ever heard of anything like that.

    After a falling out is the issue with kenny bolin for me. As several wrestlers have said on twitter, This isn't the time to settle grudges with people in wrestling using this moment. It's amazing how easy bolin went from being lifelong friends and saying how great Jim cornette is and was to now having the knife out for him.

    Bolin is also a notorious liar and renowned for screwing people over, this is even reflected in the title of his book.

    Cornette was good to Bolin for years and years and Bolin basically kept going on Russo's podcasts where Russo obviously used him to get dirt on Cornette. Cornette basically told him to go screw himself if he wanted to be buddies with Russo and here we are

    EDIT: Watched most of the video, long story short they say that Cornette always had open relationships and that unless Cornette records an apology to Vince Russo Bolins son (as an aside it's easy to see how Cornette or any human being would not like him) will tell some stories. Throughout the video they are ecstatic that they might get 300 viewers.

    Pathetic stuff really

    Ehhhh

    This thread is about sexism, sexual assault, misogyny etc. Not sure if disparaging comments about a woman's appearance are a good idea.

    Just levity my good man. Hence the Simpsons image.

    Don't get overly offended.

    For anyone interested, here too is the original accusation posted on Twitter by an indie wrestler called Phil Earley: https://twitter.com/AKI_Evolution/status/1273755945466806278

    Mike Braddock, also an OVW allum, has openly supported Earley's claims.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,516 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    How old was he when this grooming started?

    The guy refers to DMs he allegedly received from Cornette's wife during their time in OVW. Social media, never mind DMs, did not exist. The guy is a spoofer and if he's getting backed up it's by someone else equally disgruntled.

    Social media didnt exist in 2009?

    There's more than enough accusations to make the cornette stuff seem legit


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,763 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    When are the cornette allegations meant to have happened ? He left OVW in 2005 and was in ROH and TNA after that so has it been worked out when this happen or at least the accusation in the tweet above ?
