Joey Ryan’s name was mentioned multiple times in the #SpeakingOut movement. Those stories caused Impact Wrestling to fire him and now he is at home during the pandemic without a current employer.
Ryan released a nearly hour-long response where he denied the accusations against him. He then explained that Impact Wrestling did not conduct an investigation before firing him via email.
There are also apparently options available to him if he wishes to seek legal recourse against his accusers. Impact Wrestling also allegedly fired him for a reason that they were not permitted to under a clause in his contract. All of these things are currently being mulled over in his brain as he works to find peace of mind.
“They also cost me a job with Impact Wrestling who put out a statement saying that they were going to investigate all the claims, and they never did. Never reaching out to me, never attempting to contact me before releasing me via email and also chasing clout by releasing a public statement about it.”
“My contract also states that they cannot release me for anything that took place before signing the contract and all these allegations are from before I signed with Impact Wrestling and these are all things I have to consider and I’m still thinking about and considering any of the legal recourse that I have to take against any of these accusations.”
Joey Ryan has options that he can weigh at a later time. Right now he is focusing on himself and bettering himself. He is going to therapy and has been for a while.
Ryan denied the accusations and went through them all in explicit detail. It still cost him a job with Impact Wrestling.
