Sarya Knight has responded to allegations which claim physical and psychological abuse at the hands of her and her family.
Saraya Knight has issued an official statement in response to allegations of physical and psychological abuse against her and others in the Knight family and their promotions, the World Association of Wrestling (WAW) and Bellatrix.
Knight has denied the allegations and announced her departure from the professional wrestling business. The 48-year-old has since deleted all her social media accounts.
Take a look at Knight’s statement in its entirety below.
“So for the last 3 days, I have sat wondering what exactly is needed to satisfy this bloodthirsty hunt, my life, you want me to die? You think by pushing buttons I am going to lie there and just take it.
“Firstly, I refute any statements regarding kissing a minor, that’s f–king sick and if Norfolk police wants to come and chat to me about it, i f–king welcome it. Where was the parents during this apparent act! 10 years old at a show alone? I don’t think so! I hope you have good lawyers. I will welcome ANY police inquiry into this matter. I absolutely deny this!
“Yasmin we were talking up to April this year, why didn’t you say, you came to my gym just before lockdown during training, cuddled me, you and Alice came in, in front of 30 people!! I don’t get it!
“Ayesha, we didn’t get on, we fought hard, you gave as good as you got, you didn’t back down, we argued like equals. As far as I am concerned, you are entitled to whatever opinion you have of me, you were no shrinking violet. Alice, I am shocked, I have always loved you. This has hurt bad.
“In fact everyone that has written something, no matter whether true or false, right or wrong has had plenty of time to approach me. Why wait all this time?
“I will be stepping away with immediate effect, i will be deleting all social media, you can attack me via email@example.com, I will be happy to forward everyone’s point of view to my solicitor, I’m sure as you can see the business will be in great hands. And for every yin there is a yang, i know that this now is going to crescendo, but its OK, there are two sides to every story remember that.
“Thank you for 30 years, i am done, I cannot believe that I am being attacked in this f–king insane way, i am walking away because I am heartbroken not because I’m being forced to. I cannot stomach even being around wrestling. I have got f–k all to hide, I have done f–k all to warrant this, i train hard! I have trained everywhere, made more of my money in training than wrestling, i am such a bad teacher! You girls can f–king go that’s no coincide! I cannot accept this. And I won’t. I am seeking legal advice. Any allegations now please forward to Norfolk police!“
