It has been reported by The Wrestling Observer that WWE have taken action against two members of the NXT UK roster in the last few days.

The outlet reports that multiple sources have informed them that Joe Coffey has been suspended and referees Joel Allen and Chris Roberts have been released.

Whilst not confirmed, the feeling is that both releases and the suspension are due to allegations and videos that emerged during #SpeakingOut movement that continues across social media.

Coffey, Roberts and Allen have all been with the NXT UK brand since its inception and have taken part in multiple Takeover events as well as being regulars for NXT UK TV tapings.

WWE has yet to officially confirm any of these actions.
