Jordan Devlin was the former WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion. It seems he is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Hannah Francesca has accused Devlin of physical abuse. She made references to the abuse in tweets that have now been deleted. She stated that there is a “boy’s club mentality” which makes it problematic for the victims to call out their abusers. She mentioned how she approached a promotion regarding Devlin, but she was told that “one of my boys wouldn’t do that.”
“This is absolutely right. The boys club mentality makes it even harder for victims to speak out. I approached a promotion about being abused by someone on their card and was told ‘One of my boys wouldn’t do that’ I didn’t talk about what happened to me for a long time after,”
She then proceeded to talk about her experience with Devlin. She was afraid of revealing his identity as she was concerned she would be sued by a man with “WWE money.”
“I was also told to reach out to my abuser as the whole thing might just be a ‘misunderstanding’ [woman face palming emoji] Promoters…..educate yourself. Don’t gaslight your fans or talent.”
Hanna Francesca deleted the tweets and later on returned to social media. She provided photographic evidence that it was indeed Jordan Devlin.
“This is scary. I’m really scared. Jordan Devlin did this to me. And this is just the physical damage. Not including my arse and back bruises….because I don’t fancy posting that online [woman shrugging emoji]”
NXT Superstar Ligero was also accused of sexual harassment the same day. WWE has also issued a statement regarding the allegations against Devlin.
We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter.
