OTT Wrestling issues statement about changes within the promotion, Garda vetting, wrestling school

OTT Wrestling issued a statement about the sexual assault/harassment allegations against several performers that competed for the promotion. There are now new people in position of power, on top of new rules that OTT is instituting for their eventual return to the wrestling scene.

The likes of Jordan Devlin, former OTT World Champion David Starr and Scotty Davis had allegations placed against them by way of the #SpeakingOut movement. Multiple promotions have cut ties with the aforementioned performers and the Over The Top Wrestling promotion based in Ireland issued a statement today regarding changes within the organization.

They announced that Anne O’Brien is joining their team. Anne is going to lead the talent relations department and will be the designated contact for any issues that talents are dealing with. Anne is also going to work with the OTT Wrestling schools in Dublin and Belfast respectively. OTT management, staff and the performers will undergo Garda vetting, which is a background check conducted by the National Vetting Bureau.

Joe Cabray is continuing on as the promoter of OTT. Roster members LJ Cleary and Kaydee McKeon Joyce are going to be working with Fight Factory Pro Wrestling in Ireland. Karen Glennon, who’s known as Session Moth Martina has also been appointed as a coach for OTT’s ‘School Of Wrestling NI’, formerly the ‘Wrespect Wrestling’ school. OTT acquired the school recently.

The promotion is drafting a code of conduct for fans who attend shows. The full press release can be read on OTT’s official website.

Last month, OTT founder Joe Cabray did an interview with POST Wrestling and the written version can be read at this link and the audio version can be heard on the Andrew Thompson Interviews YouTube channel.
