Progress Wrestling has released a statement this afternoon after they received criticism about the involvement of Paul Robinson. Robinson was named in the on-going Speaking Out movement last Summer and was alleged to have been involved with others in the abuse of victim/s.
TWM will not comment on these allegations as they are just that.
Please see below the statement from PROGRESS Wrestling;
It was always our intent to name talent competing on each card, so that those who wish to watch can make a judgement for themselves. When a talent is working in a non-performing capacity, we require their permission to name them publically.
Paul Robinson has agreed that we can state that he was working as an agent on Chapter 104-108. Paul Robinson would have been an in ring competitor on this card, which changed only with conflicts of availability, and would have meant him being announced in the originally planned card.
To reiterate our statement from 20th February, all talent were aware who would be working backstage on the show, and no issues were raised. We are happy that everyone working on that show has passed all of our vetting procedures.
We ask if anyone has information about any of our talent or crew please get in contact via [email protected] and we will act on the information accordingly.
Thank you for all those who watched Chapter 104, we are looking forward to Chapter 105 this weekend.
All The Best
