“I want to apologize first for the delay in releasing this statement. I needed to take a hard look inside and focus on spending time with my family before I could find the right words to share with you, and I’m sorry for any concerns that’s raised.

I’ve made mistakes in my life, some not in the public eye and a few within it. We must learn from these moments. I’ve learned a lot, and I have to take responsibility for my actions.

In 2017 I was presented with a situation involving allegations of sexual impropriety involving two individuals. To be honest I really didn’t know how to deal with it as I have never had to deal with such an issue before. These types of accusations need to be taken seriously, and I encouraged the woman to report it to the proper authorities herself. Within these conversations, I had about this situation I was rude and very inconsiderate of people’s feelings. I’m truly sorry to the woman for acting that way.

Moving forward I grew to have a friendship with this woman and some of our conversations were inappropriate given I am a married man. I saw this woman two times outside of wrestling events, this was wrong and I can’t express my regret enough. Our conversations should never have crossed that line and I will never be able to apologize enough for that. This was a poor way to treat my own family and her. When I realized how wrong it was I decided to stop the conversations immediately. My behavior is something I think about every night and it didn’t reflect the main I am or that I want to be. I’ve always prided myself in being respectful to everyone and in this instance I did not show that respect and I will forever regret that.

Michael Elgin.”
