As of very recently, I've seen several people in media get fired (including Matt Lauer & Garrison Keillor today) for reported sexual harassment incidents. Last wk., while scrolling through the GIFs, I was less than amused (same went for Mr. Murphy, I'll bet) when I saw a fan slap the butt of Alexa Bliss while Nia Jax was carrying her to backstage. Angry

If there isn't at least one person in the world of wrestling who loses their job over sexual harassment by the end of 2017, I'll be very surprised.
It's over. It's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL over!

I've seen that. The Twitter responses to the posting of the video were absurd. A whole hoard of men were applauding the boy enviously. That's not how you address this problem.

Well you heard about the Mick Foley under-aged sex allegations right?

heard about it, and the levels of support for him are at the same time astounding and not unexpected. yeah, he's always been seen by the women wrestlers as the guy you can go to because he's not threatening and isn't going to make you uncomfortable.

otherwise, I've not heard anything of the actual details. I have no idea when this is supposed to have happened, whether it was a groupie kind of thing or he forced himself on her, and I'll be honest, i'm not really in the mood to be disappointed, especially since all the names that have thus far come out in Hollywood are people I couldn't give a toss about.

so far, this year for me has been like music fans last year who don't listen to anything more than 25 years old.

This morning, I saw Diva Dirt post a story about Melina Perez & Shelly Martinez being sexually harassed. That site also talks about Heather Lynn, Pollyanna & Sable having similar problems.
It's over. It's ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL over!

Well his career is over. Doesn't matter if it's not legit and he gets exonerated, the #MeToo movement means he's done and blacklisted.

Agree there Rico...could be too far fetched but there's no way he'll get away with his career in tact. Reading through her accusations there's some stuff that doesn't add up unless that's just my professional sense kicking in haha.

I doubt his career would be over that cut and dry. WWE will wait for facts to out and commit to their own independent investigations. If Enzo is cleared then that'll be that.

I would be surprised if he retains the title at the Rumble though. Likely he'll be written off for a little while so that he can talk to the Police and so on. 

EDIT: He's just been suspended so that the investigation can take place.
