NXT UK star Trent Seven issued a short statement on his Twitter earlier today commenting on the misconduct allegations made against him in what is being referred to as the #SpeakingOut movement. Scary stories of sexual abuse and harassment have come up on many in the wrestling community, including Jordan Devlin, David Starr, Ligero, Jimmy Havoc, and Jack Gallagher, whom WWE released yesterday because of the accusations.
The Moustache Mountain member writes, “The assumptions in the claim against me are untrue and a defamation of character. I will be taking this matter further.”
Seven was accused of cheating on his long-time partner and buying drinks for underage girls, whom the accuser claims would have went further had she not stepped in. She also claims that he warned her not to share details about their affair otherwise he would harm himself. You can read the full story below along with Seven’s tweet.
The assumptions in the claim against me are untrue and a defamation of character.
I will be taking this matter further.

Nervous as hell, but here I go. I contemplated keeping my name off this, but I know of several women with firsthand stories that are similar to this one.
