WWE referee Drake Wuertz and former WWE Superstar Matt Morgan have been spotlighted in a recent article by Vice for contributing to a “QAnon-adjacent anti-child trafficking charity.”

Wuertz and Morgan have been coordinating to raise funds for this charity. Morgan is Mayor of Longwood, Florida, and he has been doing this business on city time. Wuertz is accused of taking part in these activities on company time and even using his official WWE email to promise further participation.

Emails released via public records requests under Florida’s Sunshine Act show Wuertz, the WWE referee, coordinating his activities as a volunteer for Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) via his WWE corporate email, even pledging to solicit WWE performers to appear at an OUR fundraiser.

Operation Underground Railroad claims to have no connection to QAnon and they distanced themselves from conspiracy theories on the website, yet it is reported the group “embraces followers of that particular baseless conspiracy theory.”

When Operation Underground Railroad was contacted on the matter they denied being associated with QAnon Conspiracy Groups. Then the charity “did not respond to a follow-up asking why it hasn’t specifically condemned QAnon, as other anti-trafficking charities have.”

Drake Wuertz, Matt Morgan, and other WWE public relations staff also did not respond to questions regarding this situation. Below you can see Triple H signing merchandise that was to be auctioned off at an Operation Underground Railroad event.

For the record, it appears that the autographed Triple H referee shirt from WrestleMania 34 was not sold. There were no takers with the opening bid starting at $200.
