UPDATE: WWE sent the following statement on WWE developmental trainer Bill DeMott and the claims by former talents that he was harassing numerous talents:
“There have been no sexual harassment complaints filed against any employee at the WWE’s training facility in Orlando. Instead there have been baseless allegations made by disgruntled talent recently released by WWE. Regardless, WWE takes these issues seriously and investigated this matter, concluding that there was no wrongdoing.”
ORIGINAL: TwoAndaHalfWrestlers.com recently interviewed former WWE NXT workers Chase Donovan and Chad Baxter on their podcast. The two recounted a second-hand story of trainer Bill DeMott pulling out a gun in front of some trainees, and also firsthand accounts of him hitting talents on the back with a yardstick, using homophobic slurs, telling workers to commit suicide, bullying, getting Cena’s trainer fired, and more.
