Jordan Devlin, Ligero, and the lawyer for Matt Riddle have issued statements denying the allegations made over the past two days.
Matt Riddle, through lawyer Daniel J. Rose, posted a statement on the allegations by independent wrestler Candy Cartwright:
The allegations by this independent female performer are completely false and another attempt to harass and humiliate Mr. and Mrs. Riddle and to try to tarnish their reputation in the community.
We have been aware for the last two years of this performer stalking the Riddle family.
In 2019, our firm had drafted a pleading against this performer to seek an injunction for cyberstalking in the Circuit Court for Orange County, Florida.
Fellow WWE performers Jordan Devlin and Ligero have also made statements regarding allegations against them.
I didn’t even want to address the hurtful allegation made against me, but for the sake of my followers and friends on this platform that may for whatever reason be unsure, I’m going to address this once.
The recent allegation made against me is completely and utterly false and I deny it entirely. This is a case of a malicious personal agenda being executed against me on the back of a very brave telling of true experiences by other women. I completely denounce it.
This is all I will say on the matter, and I am now working with a legal team to help decide how to proceed from here.
Ligero responded Friday with the following:
The current story that has been released by Violet O’Hara/Claire-Michelle Oldfield is neither accurate nor true. This is a completely false allegation and whilst I’ve done other things in my life that I deeply regret, this isn’t an accurate or truthful portrayal of events.
This is something I strongly deny and is something I’ve been in the process of speaking to a legal team about.
Regarding the other statements from people like Laura, Natalie who have spoken out about the way they were made to feel, and others that have come forward about unwanted messages, I have no excuse.
It’s inappropriate, it’s an embarrassment and it’s an absolute shameful way to act from someone in a position of trust. I sincerely apologise for my actions and any hurt I’ve caused.
I have no justification of my actions in the slightest. In these situations, I have failed people as a friend, as a fiancée and as a decent human being.
