One of WWE's biggest signings this year has been olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson.
However, a section of the audience is not happy with WWE signing him due to sexual assault allegations laid against Steveson back in 2019. The situation was that Steveson and his accomplice, Dylan Martinez, were arrested in June of 2019 on suspicion of criminal sexual conduct but they were released from jail without being charged. The investigation concluded and during a press conference in December of 2019, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said, “In the interest of justice, there is inadequate evidence to fairly charge and prosecute this case.”
Steveson issued out the following statement:
“One of the challenges for me personally especially over the past several months/years has been reading the criticisms and attacks on my character by people who don’t know me personally and my values. No charges were ever brought by anyone and the entire episode has been difficult for everyone involved … Going forward people who don’t know me will hopefully see that kindness, respect and empathy are virtues I take very seriously in my life.”
