PROGRESS Wrestling has confirmed several talent suspensions and departures following abuse allegations made during the #SpeakingOut movement.

The promotion wrote on its website:

Further to our statement made earlier today, here is an update regarding specific allegations and current roster members:

David Starr – will no longer be working for PROGRESS

Marc ‘Paz’ Parry – will no longer be working for PROGRESS

Travis Banks – will no longer be working for PROGRESS

Ligero – will no longer be working for PROGRESS

Jordan Devlin – will be suspended indefinitely // the tag titles have been vacated

Scotty Davis – will be suspended indefinitely // the tag titles have been vacated

We take all these allegations extremely seriously. Those under suspension will have their situation reviewed periodically between now, and events starting again.

We continue to monitor and listen to the Speaking Out movement so that we can take appropriate action where necessary.

This is further to the statement it made earlier, which you can read at this link.

We will continue to update these stories as further information becomes available.
