SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
ROH World Champion Jay Lethal has issued a statement on his Twitter handle today regarding the accusation from former ROH wrestler/manager Taeler Hendrix that her ROH career was sabotaged after she refused to have sex with him. In his statement, Lethal fully denied Hendrix’s accusations and said he was confident ROH’s investigation would find him innocent of her claims against him.

Yesterday, Hendrix tweeted that she had taken her claims against Lethal to ROH management, but when they didn’t do anything about them, she quit in April of 2017. She also included a screenshot that she claimed to be from Lethal asking her to talk to him.
After Lethal put out his statement earlier today, Hendrix tweeted again with a screenshot of an alleged text sent by Lethal saying that she was fighting for what’s right and she’s speaking out because “the business has been a certain way for so long.”
deny all you want. you sent me this before you pulled me aside at a live event, told me what you told me. just because the business has been a certain way for so long. I'm tired of it and I'm fighting for what's right. pic.twitter.com/CxUkFsGOrY
