Michael Elgin Discusses Allegations Made Against Him

Elgin Impact wrestling

Michael Elgin talked about allegations made against him in a new video he posted on YouTube today.

Last week, IMPACT Wrestling announced “Michael Elgin will not be appearing in any further IMPACT Wrestling programming”. This came after allegations of sexual misconduct which Elgin addresses in the video.

You can watch the full video below and highlights are courtesy of 411Mania.

Michael Elgin on the claims that he sexually assaulted a woman in 2011- 

“It was brought to my attention that some girl made claims about a hotel room in 2011. Now, I don’t know if anything had ever happened to this young lady. I hope that it hasn’t, and I hope that if it has she’s found some peace and some resolve. And I’m sure that’s impossible, because I can’t speak on anything like that.

“But what I can say, is that in 2011, I did share a hotel room with the girl and I did share a bed with the girl. But what has been left out is there was four other people in the room and I laid down in the bed next to the girl, asked her to come closer or to have sex. I don’t know the exact verbiage.

All I remember is her saying no and me going to sleep and the next morning the four wrestlers asking if we slept together. When I said no, they said, ‘Oh, we know. We heard her turn you down.’ And joked with me for months after about getting turned down. So I don’t know what else to say about that. I have four people swearing up and down that that’s exactly what happened. And that’s exactly what I did. Like, I am many things, and I made many mistakes in my life, but never, ever would I do anything to try and force anybody to do anything.”

On the allegation that he sent a wrestler an unwanted nude photo-

“And obviously, a female wrestler said that I sent her a dick picture in 2016. When I saw this, I was caught off-guard and messaged her, and said ‘Hey, I know that we hung out with a group of people in Japan in 2016, but I am 100% positive I never sent you a dick picture. And she told me that when we hung out everything was fine, everything was cordial. It was cool to hang out and talk.

And that apparently I was out with a bunch of wrestlers, and was drunk. And they caught me talking to her about wrestling, and they dared me to send a dick picture, and she claims I did. I said, ‘Wow, I’m very sorry. I had no clue that happened.’ And then she replied with ‘Well, it’s not that big of a deal, it’s not like I said you tried to force yourself on me or anything. And you said sorry back then, so it’s not that big of a deal.’ But then, it’s become a big deal to that person when again, I have all these messages because I was taken aback.”

On the picture not being him- 

“And then she showed somebody else the picture, and they showed me. And it’s not me, so I don’t know if I was drunk and sent an image you can find online because I didn’t want to send mine. I don’t know if — I don’t know what happened. All I know is that that’s what she claims. And if that is what happened, I said ‘Sorry’ when she posted it. I said sorry apparently in 2016 by her words. And I can’t do anything about that.”
