Anthem, which is the parent company of Impact Wrestling has issued a statement regarding the sexual misconduct allegations against several of their Impact Wrestling’s talent, including Dave Crist, Michael Elgin and Joey Ryan. As we reported earlier, Elgin was accused of sending unwanted photos of his genitalia, while Ryan was accused of groping a woman.
Independent talent Ziggy Haim has accused Crist of sexually grooming her and also sending unwanted sexual photos.
