NXT UK Superstar Wolfgang Accused Of “Emotional Manipulation” & Having Pictures Of “School Girls” On Devices
The wrestling world has been turned upside over the last 24 hours as victims of sexual abuse, assault, and misconduct have began to speak out and share their stories as part of the #SpeakingOut movement that has taken twitter by storm.
The British wrestling scene has been flooded with accusations of misconduct and abuse, and it looks like you can add another NXT UK Superstar to the list. Laura Ryan came forward earlier today with her story about her relationship with NXT UK Superstar Wolfgang. Ryan claims that her relationship with Wolfgang led to years of “self-harm and mental illness.” She also accused him of having pictures of “school girls” on his laptop and camera cards.
Ryan states that Wolfgang was never physically abusive, however was “extremely emotionally manipulative.”
“I’m not one for posting so publicly on the internet but today I woke up to a message from a close friend with regards to the #SpeakingOut movement in the wrestling scene on Twitter and I have carried this emotional burden with me for years and have since battled with self-harm, mental illness and I’m yet again on the waiting list to see psychologist, I feel like it’s time to share my experience.”
“I was involved in professional wrestling for about 5-6 years a trainee and a valet. In that time, I was engaged to a now WWE NXT professional wrestler, Barry ‘Wolfgang’ Young. During this period, I was an absolute shell of myself due to the emotional abuse I suffered in that relationship. He wasn’t physically abusive with me in that time but he was extremely emotionally manipulative and I caught unsolicited photographs of school girls on his laptop and on his camera memory cards from several occasions, including one he admitted to driving to St. Mungo’s Academy and waiting for the school to finish and proceeded to take photos of school girls as they left. I know a lot of people will be incredibly shocked by this due to the ‘Good guy, couldn’t do more for you’ facade and probably will be a lot of questions regarding why I didn’t come out sooner – but I was so fucking emotionally abused that I feared for my life and it’s taken me a very long time to realize I wasn’t at fault.”
Currently, at the time of this writing, NXT UK Superstar Wolfgang has yet to respond to the allegations that have been made against him.
