In a stunning turn of events, Bill DeMott has stepped down from his duties as head trainer of NXT developmental effective immediately.

DeMott sent out the following tweet on his official Twitter account Friday afternoon:

“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.”

He had openly been accused of being physically and verbally abusive during his time with the company by several past workers who had been with developmental.

This includes former talent Austin Matelson, who worked under the name Judas Devlin.

World Wrestling Entertainment investigated the matter and was unable to prove Matelson’s claims, though.

“WWE took the accusations made two years ago by Austin Matelson very seriously, conducted a full investigation and was unable to validate the claims. Regardless, WWE continues to reinforce policies and procedures to ensure a positive training environment.”

Editor’s Note

Unbelievable. His reputation has been forever tarnished because of these allegations. I never thought he’d step down, though. I figured he’d fight through, get more support from the company and try and save his hide.
