Showing his dick to Terri Runnells.. It´s in the light category, but it´s still sexual harassment

I don't see Velveteen Dream being fired. Vince McMahon has a soft spot for pedo chicken hawks (see Pat Patterson, Mel Phillips and Terry Garvin).

The first allegations with the picture and voice message were made by supposedly a 16 year old, in DC where Dream is from 16 is legal, in Florida where he lives now 17 is legal and who knows where the kid is from, so it's hard to know if what he allegedly did was legal or not.

Then there's the fact that he was hacked in 2018, theoretically the person who was posting shit on his Twitter could've also had access to his iCloud and iMessage.

There was another "allegation" that Dream tried to groom a 16 year old independent wrestler, I put allegation in quotes because the guy accused Dream of child grooming while also saying he never talked sexually to him. Supposedly Dream told the guy he could get him a job in WWE if he bulked up and asked him for progress pics, the guy sent them but he said he felt uncomfortable.

I've been a Patrick Clark supporter since TE and if he is a kid diddler then he deserves whatever happens to him, but I haven't seen a lot of concrete evidence, the kid who exposed him got caught participating in a group chat titled something like "I'm going to expose that ni99er", so his motivations are questionable.
Thanks for posting this - if a nineteen year old Dream propositioned a sixteen year old boy - umm, so what? There is no question of physical harm being done and the accuser may have his own agenda? Or am I still missing something?

I haven't been paying attention to this, I know the kid was a minor, but was he the legal age of consent in the state? Because that makes a big difference. If the kid he went after was below the age of consent, he's pretty fucked. If he wasn't I could see him going to AEW or Impact after things calm down a bit.
Why is it only fucked if the kid is underage, but totally fine if he's of legal age by 1 month? Can you tell me the different between a boy who is 15 years, 11 months old, and a boy who is 16 years, and 1 week old?

Right.. they'll never let go of Jeff Hardy or Randy Orton unless they opted to go. Remove these two for being dickheads and then I'll believe they're serious.

In saying that I don't want them to.

It’s mainly because Dream was only 19 (still a teen himself) and it was supposedly legal. I don’t even think he had sex with the person. It’s a fuss about nothing.

However if he was 30 and other person is 16 and legal. Then yeah it is frowned upon and most people would see it as morally wrong. But again if it’s legal, you should not lose your job for it.

Just because twitter mob is upset about someone talking to a young person legally does not mean they should be fired.

I guess this is one of the hazards of a job that mixes your private life (relationships...), your professional life (getting bookings, training students....) and a fictional character you play in a wrestling ring. These are all mixed up together deliberately by the performers on their social media to make the character more "real". Problem is that performers sometimes lose a sense of reality, and fans think they are entitled to boo/cheer not only for the character but all other aspects of that wrestler's life and sit in judgment on them.

Add in the reality that many of these guys never really grow out of high school mindset and think they are alpha jock and it is an accident waiting to happen.

I don't blame any wrestler for deleting their twitter account. That shouldn't raise a red flag with anyone. Anyone can remove Twitter for any number of reasons. Most understandably being tired of the toxic environment and not wanting everything that is said to be held under a microscope to bite them in the butt later on.

Sucks that Dream got in a car accident. If he were to get fired any time soon for accusations it would have to be something more than that one story if when he was 19.

Watch as we virtuously fire underlings but touch no one in our main office!

Aren't we good people at WWE? Look at how we're so progressive as we put forth a show of our correctness! Pat our backs while we ignore anyone in a suit in our offices!

"Serious" my ass..

Nothing. Why is it ok to be in a porn on ur 18th birthday and not the week before? Why is the sped limit 56 and not 60mph? Because they gotta set the legal limit somewhere. 16 & 19 isn't an issue to me tho, seeing as how it happens in High Schools across the globe daily

If they are serious they can't just release a few guys and keep others who have been caught up in this situation. It doesn't matter if your name is Matt Riddle, Jordan Devlin, or anyone in between. If a company is serious they don't make exceptions for people based on their talent or potential or anything else. Sadly, these situations often show WWE's or any company's true colours and some people will be spared the axe and likely still featured prominently which really makes any purging of bad apples a fucking farce.

Being a douchebag isn't the same as a lot of the things that people are being accused of right now. If I were in charge of WWE I'd rather employ a roster full of assholes than a roster full of rapists.

Here's something to remember All rapists are assholes but not all assholes are rapists.

It's sad that a lot of people are being released but if the problems they committed victimized other people then I do think they deserve the boot.

Problematic by what standards exactly? People with bad attitudes behind the scenes? People who are opinionated and are viewed as difficult by management? People who have a shady background like the sexual assault allegations? There's all sorts of ways you could look at it really. The term problematic is kind've vague.
