In the wake of the #SpeakingOut movement, former British Wrestling favourite and NXT UK Superstar (El) Ligero has been released.
Ligero spent 16 years on the independent circuit before signing to the NXT UK brand in May 2018. His WWE/NXT UK career would be a quiet one, just working UK dates and had an appearance on 205 Live in May 2019.
The release comes in wake of the #SpeakingOut movement, of which the Mexican/Leeds native El Ligero among other WWE NXT UK stars had various allegations put towards their names. Whether or not these allegations are true is a different matter.
El Ligero joins Jack Gallagher on the released list thus far. We’ll update you on any more releases as they happen.
