Former WWE Superstar TJ Perkins Claims He Was Previously Sexually Abused By Female Wrestlers While Underage

The pro wrestling world has been turned upside down in light of all the allegations and accusations that have been made against fellow wrestlers as part of the #SpeakingOut movement that has set Twitter ablaze.

Ring of Honor Star Session Moth Martina commented on the movement when she sent out a tweet talking about “slut shaming” and the double standard that goes on in the locker room.

“When we gonna talk about boys in the back slut shaming?!

Boys will be boys but if a girl does it she is DIRT. F*ck off”

This brought out a reply from former WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins, who shared his own personal story of sexual abuse which took place when he was only 15 years old and just starting out in the wrestling business. He claims that he was taken advantage of by older female wrestlers who were 20-22 years old at the time.

“I’ve always felt that double standard is wrong. On the flipside, I shared 2 stories last night with a loved one of myself at 15 being taken advantage of/pressured by older girls in wrestling who were 20-22 at the time. Hard to share cuz men are expected to be proud of such things. What makes it tough in the other direction is guys are both expected to be proud of such things, and also shamed for the sexist nature of being proud of such things. But it felt uncomfortable, nervous, empty, etc as anyone would feel in that situation. Difficult to express. I definitely don’t suggest it’s 50/50 or anything, and I absolutely don’t want to take any focus away from anyone who is sharing regardless of gender. There’s obviously double standards existing both ways and everyone’s experiences are different and should be viewed individually.”
