Whilst no official announcement has been made, it has been reported that NXT UK stars Travis Banks (Travis Bligh) and Ligero (Simon Musk) have been released by the promotion.

John Pollock of POST Wrestling tweeted the following. The Ligero release was first reported by PWInsider.

Both men were the subject of numerous sexual abuse and assault allegations last week as part of the #SpeakingOut movement and had already been removed from the active roster of Progress Wrestling.

Both Ligero and Banks had been featured on the NXT UK brand since its launch in 2018.

They follow Jack Gallagher in being removed entirely from the WWE website and not moved to the alumni section, as is customary for released talent.
