It’s done. Last year, the SpeakingOut Movement shook up the wrestling world in a huge way that could not have been seen coming. A series of statements, announcements and interviews revealed that several wrestlers from around the world were being accused of various forms of sexual harassment and assault. Now one of the biggest remaining cases has been wrapped up.
According to TMZ, Candy Cartwright has dropped her sexual assault lawsuit against WWE’s Riddle. The lawsuit claimed that Riddle sexually assaulted Cartwright in a van in 2018, a charge which Riddle has denied. There is no word on if a financial settlement has been reached, though Cartwright was seeking $10 million in the lawsuit. Neither Riddle nor his lawyer has commented on the situation. Riddle never missed any time with WWE over the situation and will compete in the Money in the Bank ladder match this coming weekend.
This is still a rather serious situation. Check out some more lighthearted moments with nothing to do with the lawsuit or Riddle:
Opinion: This is one of those situations that is going to be complicated no matter what happens. I have no idea what happened and I have no idea if Cartwright is happy with the situation. At the moment though, it seems to be over and this is probably the last major thing you are going to hear about the whole thing. I hope that what Cartwright says happened didn’t take place, but it is unlikely we will ever know for sure.
