MLW has announced that they have released announcer Mark Adam Haggerty after an allegation surfaced online with the claim that he had inappropriate exchanges with a 15-year-old child.
This is the latest accusation to come out from the #SpeakingOut movement since Wednesday night. The movement picked up steam after David Starr was accused of rape. Dozens of people have come out against several wrestlers and personalities in the wrestling business over the last few days.
MLW’s statement and the allegations can be seen below.

You can see the screenshots below that led to Haggerty’s firing.
When confronted initially Mark stated that he blocked the individual the second he found out their age, but the kid was the one to block him after (so that was a lie). This is inappropriate, Mark is in a position of power and holds a very high status in this business.2/2 pic.twitter.com/Hml8w1w0Ee
