WWE have issued a statement saying that they investigated the Bill DeMott misconduct allegations but found no evidence to substantiate them. Obviously multiple eye witnesses and other talent saying similar things is not a concern to WWE:
WWE took the accusations made two years ago by Austin Matelson very seriously, conducted a full investigation and was unable to validate the claims. Regardless, WWE continues to reinforce policies and procedures to ensure a positive training environment.
The allegations come from Austin Matelson who previously wrestled at NXT as Judas Devlin, and were backed up by Ryan Nemeth, the younger brother of Dolph Ziggler who has also previously been in developmental.
The allegations include physical abuse, dangerous training methods, using racial and homophobic language, the downplaying and exacerbating of injuries, and general all round bullying.
