The wrestling world finds itself embroiled in controversy as serious allegations of misconduct have surfaced against Chris Jericho, stemming from his alleged actions towards Kylie Rae and her subsequent departure from AEW in 2019. These allegations have cast a shadow over Jericho’s reputation.
The allegations against Jericho were initially hinted at by Nick Hausman, suggesting that there might be undisclosed issues from Jericho’s past. Another tweet alleged that Kylie Rae had an uncomfortable encounter with Chris Jericho in hotel room, which was cited as a key factor in her decision to exit AEW.
Adding a layer of complexity to the situation, a resurfaced video clip from 2019 has emerged, in which Chris Jericho downplayed allegations of hush money involving Vince McMahon. Given the recent accusations against Jericho, this previously overlooked footage is now receiving significant attention and has prompted fans to reevaluate their perceptions of Jericho’s character.
In the midst of these allegations and controversy, The Great Brian Last took to Twitter to share images from the AEW Talent Handbook, which outlines the company’s guidelines for handling harassment. These guidelines make it abundantly clear that AEW has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment in all its forms, including verbal, physical, and visual. The policy extends to work-related communications, settings, and promotional appearances.
The wrestling community is closely following these developments, and many fans are standing in solidarity with Kylie Rae. As the allegations continue to unfold, the industry is left with questions about accountability and the importance of upholding a safe and respectful environment for all involved in professional wrestling.
It will be interesting to see if the allegations will eventually be addressed by Chris Jericho or AEW. Stay with Ringside News, as we will keep you update on another other information that becomes available.
