WWE removed the official profile for NXT UK star Simon Musk aka Ligero in the last hour.

Sources have confirmed to he has been released by the company.

Ligero was accused of harassment and wrongdoing by several female wrestlers in Great Britain as part of the #SpeakingOut movement.   Wrestler Violet O’Hara/Claire-Michelle Oldfield stated in an Twitter post that Liger had "indecently assaulted" her after she allowed him to lay in her bed when he was let into a hotel room she was sharing with others. 

He responded to those accusations before deleting his Twitter account.  In the now-deleted response, Ligero wrote, "The current story that has been released by Violet O’Hara/Claire-Michelle Oldfield is neither accurate nor true.  This is a completely false allegation and whilst I’ve done other things in my life that I deeply regret, this isn’t an accurate or truthful portrayal of events.  This is something I strongly deny and is something I’ve been in the process of speaking to a legal team about.  Regarding the other statements from people like Laura, Natalie who have spoken out about the way they were made to feel, and others that have come forward about unwanted messages, I have no excuse.   It’s inappropriate, it’s an embarrassment and it’s an absolute shameful way to act from someone in a position of trust. I sincerely apologise for my actions and any hurt I’ve caused.  I have no justification of my actions in the slightest. In these situations, I have failed people as a friend, as a fiancée and as a decent human being."

WWE has yet to publicly acknowledge Ligero's release.
