On today's Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the circumsances behind Nash Carter's firing from WWE. As was noted on Wednesday, Carter was fired after domestic violence allegations from Impact Wrestling's Kimber Lee.
"This is a really weird situation because he was fired for the Hitler picture. The other allegations is not what he was fired for," Meltzer said.
Meltzer later stated again on the show that it was the photo that got him fired. He added, "you have to understand Vince McMahon. Vince McMahon had allegations against him multiple times over the years. So, if he is to believe that [Carter] is innocent, then he has to presume that other people that claim's are made [about] may be innocent. So he's not a guy who is gonna fire everybody the minute somebody says something. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm just saying that's the situation."
Meltzer added that Nick Khan comes the criminal justice system before he became an agent in Hollywood and Khan is very much of the belief that you can't get rid of someone without proof because you are innocent until proven guilty.
Meltzer added that there is sympathy for Carter amont people in NXT, including from Gigi Dolin.. He said, "In NXT, they are very symphatetic towards him. Gigi, of course she is because she is the girlfriend."
Dolin said the following on Twitter after Carter was fired: "This world makes me sick"
Wes Lee's wife, Erica Marie, has been tweeting that Carter is innocent. She said that Kimber Lee was served with divorced papers on Monday and she was mad about that.
She added that Carter had been living with her and Wes for months. She tweeted, "Just so everyone is aware, @NashCarterWWE has been living with Wes and I for months ever since she was in the hospital (which she checked herself into). He’s actually been the one trying to avoid her and HER mental abuse. They haven’t been together. He went to 1 therapy session.. "
