Bill DeMott issued the following statement today after the numerous allegations this past week:
I deny the recent allegations made about me, however, to avoid any embarrassment or damage to the WWE, I’ve decided to step down from my role effective immediately.
The resignation came after more allegations came out in the last day or so from more former developmental wrestlers including independend wrestler Terra Calaway alleging that DeMott used racist terms at a tryout and another wrestler alleging that DeMott did nothing when he was told about a strength and conditioning coach sexually harassing the women.
Former developmental talent and current Lucha Underground star Ivelisse posted the following on twitter:
If ya'll only knew MY story… You know who I'm talking about. I lost everything for speaking up.. I was the first. The warning to others.

There was also allegations from Chad Baxter and Chase Donovan confirming some of the things Kevin Matthews said in the past that DeMott allegedly had a gun in his draw and would show it to his students.
